Temperature Check

Every day we have a variety of feelings. Sometimes they are strong, and we feel them fully. Other times, we barely notice them. Many times, we have more than one feeling at once. Learning to identify and talk about our feelings can help others understand our wants and needs. This makes us great problem solvers. Let’s get intentional about talking about our emotions!

Naming feelings can help us release emotions rather than holding emotions in. This creates better communication, understanding, and problem-solving.
