The Self-Controller helps us first figure out what it feels like to lose control and then how to take steps we need to get back in control.

You can ask yourself the following questions to recognize your emotions:

  • Am I paying attention?
  • Do I know what everyone is talking about it?
  • How am I feeling?
  • Do I feel calm and neutral or am I feeling a bigger emotion?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, think of a strategy. Ask yourself what you can do to get yourself ready and back in control? Do you need a break? Are you hungry or thirsty? What physical actions will help you calm down?
