Emotional granularity involves the ability to recognize and express our emotions and experiences using nuanced and specific language. The richness of our emotional vocabulary contributes to a more expansive inner world. By becoming attuned to our emotional states, we can cultivate loving relationships both with ourselves and with others. Pause when you feel overwhelmed. When overwhelmed by intense emotions like fear or anger, the rational part of the brain becomes dysfunctional. This is not an ideal state for engaging in a conflict or making decisions. Incorporate breaks into your communication with those close to you. When you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment alone to breathe deeply and reflect. Once you feel more composed, you can continue the conversation.
