Learning to Ride the Emotional Waves. Emotions for most people naturally seem to come and go. Most people experience either euphoria, grief or anger as passing extremes.

Riding the Waves Is a Lesson in Leadership By Kathy Gurchiek January 11, 2019 A LeaderSurf attendee rides the waves off the coast of Playa Santana, Nicaragua, in a program that uses surfing as part.

DBT – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, is a type of skills based therapy that was developed by Marsha Linehan, and it’s focus is learning tools and skills to empower and individual to be effective in their own life.

Today has been a pretty hard day for me. I’m not good at waiting for thing that are outside of my control, and next week I’m supposed to hear about two job interviews. So, I really just have to wait. I can’t tell you how difficult that waiting is for me. I feel anxious and frustrated, nervous and on edge, I keep questioning myself, and temptations to do behaviors rise…

So today I am riding the wave…. until some of these negative emotions subside.

The “Riding the Wave” Skill is about sitting with and being in an uncomfortable emotion, until it passes. We all know that emotions can come on like a huge crashing wave, but that they do pass; so this skill is just about being present while it does. It prevents pushing the feelings deep inside and having them come up in your life later – often times more intense.

Riding the Wave is hard. I honestly don’t like feelings. But It’s important that we’re able to sit with how we feel. Below is Robert Plutchik’s Wheel of emotions. Can you find how you are feeling on there today?

Let me know how riding the wave is going for you! Once you have identified your emotion make a list of healthy things you can do to deal with them. I listen to music, do art, write, talk to someone about how I am feeling etc. I’d love to hear how “Riding the Wave” is working or not working for you! Use the form below! I’ll respond to everyone who submits something!
