Monday's therapy appointment brought me a new homework assignment. Its purpose is to help me identify my feelings, the sources/causes of those feelings, and to help me realize that I have other options for my responses to those feelings. The assignment is as follows:
Once a day, at different times each day, answer these four questions:
1. What am I feeling now?
2. What is the cause or source of this feeling?
3. What are three things I typically do when I feel this emotion?
4. What are three things I could do differently when I feel this emotion?
