Here is some good news for you!
What if you found out that all emotions have value, and none are inherently ‘good’ or ‘bad’?
How many times have you been told to quit being so negative and to think positively? In a moment when you felt sad everyone wanted you to “cheer up”. When you felt resentful or envious someone told you it was wrong and you “shouldn’t feel that way”.
The good news is that having those ‘negative’ feelings is perfectly fine and even healthy. Sound easier than trying to suppress or avoid them? The key to embracing all your emotions is understanding that they are trying to tell you something important and, in some way, to take care of you. Some may be uncomfortable but that doesn’t mean they are wrong.
We can’t avoid our emotions, so why not befriend them?
We are committed to helping you develop emotional wellness through learning and coaching. There are over 200 emotions, and each exists for a purpose. They are all valuable sources of information. Our approach is unique in that we do not exclude any emotions including anger, frustration, jealousy, and others typically perceived as bad or negative. We believe every emotion is a gift. Join us on a journey of self-discovery to discover all you’ve been missing.
Top 5 “Negative” Emotions and Why They are Essential for You.
Want to Improve Your Emotional Wellness? Try our OK to FEEL Method™ Today.
Many people struggle with emotions like anger or anxiety and try various methods to deal with them. Sometimes they choose avoidance, self-medication, or concentrating on motivation and while these all may give some temporary relief, they will probably not shift their relationship with emotions. Our OK to FEEL Method™ will help you identify and understand which emotions are not serving you and how to switch to emotions that generate satisfaction. We are not biased against any emotion just because it feels unpleasant or intense. Often, our clients are surprised when they realize that “positive” emotions such as loyalty, love or passion were at the root of their challenge, but they never considered the possibility. We invite you to take a non-judgmental approach and consider learning to navigate your emotions with the help of your intellect.
Join Our Coaching for Emotional Wellness using the OK to FEEL Method™
Some people say emotional wellness means to be happy or to live a stress-free life. We see it differently.
We believe emotional wellness is “having the emotional flexibility, strength, balance, and resources to engage fully in life.” It is analogous to physical wellness, which is more than the absence of disease. Strengthening emotions is like building muscles. They must be exercised and stretched daily. Just as everything we do impacts and is impacted by our physical conditions, all we do impacts and is impacted by our emotional condition.

Integrate the Domain of Emotions into Your Wellness Programs
If you are committed to developing an emotional wellness program in your organization, we can help you. We offer a proactive, learning-based approach toward emotional health. Your employees will love our programs because they are not based on the idea that they have a “problem” to be fixed. We will help you normalize emotions and make them available as support tools for your organizational vision.
We see emotions as ‘the energy that moves us,’ which means that just having good intentions or a desire for emotional wellness won’t be sufficient to produce it. Employees will need to understand what emotions are, how to identify theirs, how to navigate them, and what practices will strengthen emotions as a competence.
