A TOOL FOR UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONS
The Feeling Wheel can help people recognize and communicate what they are feeling. The inner circle is labeled with names of primary feelings (mad, sad, scared, joyful, powerful, and peaceful).

Positive journaling has been found to help improve feelings of well-being and self-esteem. Record three daily statements related to your successes, good qualities, and positive experiences.

Offering someone ‘toxic positivity’ can often shut down the conversation by making them feel they shouldn’t share their ‘bad’ feelings. Supporting others through validation can let them know that their negative feelings are okay and they are not alone. The chart below, by Whitney Hawkins Goodman, LMFT, provides examples of validating statements versus toxic positivity. Which statement will have a more effective outcome for the person you are trying to support?
HOW YOUR ORGANIZATION CAN HELP YOUR EMPLOYEES
