If we want to learn to be emotionally resilient, genuine dads, who better to learn from than the most elite warriors on the planet? Today we have a clip from a Q & A in The Dad Edge Alliance with a recent guest, former Navy SEAL Chris Sajnog. He talks about the importance of allowing kids to feel their emotions and gives an example of his real life experience with this challenge as a father.
Our thoughts and emotions can tear us down if we don’t know how to manage them. When waves of stress repeatedly hit us, our emotions can override our brains and take over our behavior, leading us to perform badly and make poor decisions. We may experience overwhelm or feel like our life is spinning out of control.
In this quick episode, I discuss the difference between an emotion and a thought, and how we can use the dynamic between emotions and thoughts to eliminate unnecessary stress, depression, anger, and overwhelm.
