This week’s Gnome Zone gives you the opportunity to create a mindful practice as an individual or a family. Recognizing emotions increases emotional intelligence, and reinforcing positive feelings is a way to enhance a person’s emotional resiliency.
- You just need yourself!
Here’s what you do
Explore your inner world with an intention to discover what brings you a feeling of delight.
Use any or all of your senses: touch, sight, smell, taste, and hearing to find out what delights you that day.
Experience delight wherever you find it: look up in the sky at a puffy cloud, listen to the sounds of a river, smell your favorite food, or…
Create an expression of your delightful feelings: journal in words, record sounds, make up a dance, paint or draw in pictures the things in your world that bring you a feeling of delight.
“The Why” behind the Challenge
Recognizing emotions increases emotional intelligence, and reinforcing positive feelings is a way to enhance a person’s emotional resiliency. Creating a mindful practice as an individual or as a family is also a tool that can be used to connect in meaningful ways.
