Read through the list of feelings in the left column and circle the ones you are experiencing. Next, take a moment to think about them—it may be helpful to close your eyes and turn your focus inward—then, in the right column, indicate where you experience each feeling in your body. For example, anger might be felt as tightness in your shoulders, sadness as an aching in your chest, fear as a knot in your stomach, and joy as warmth in your heart. Learning how different emotions feel in your body in terms of their location (where you feel them) and sensation (what they feel like) will enable you to identify them more quickly and accurately.
