Better understanding how you learn and what triggers your optimal performance will help you to develop adaptive learning emotions.

When we are exposed to adverse situations, ill-structured problems and a disorienting world, the rules of regular life don’t apply anymore. Thus, gathering knowledge about emotions is accessible through reading books and articles. Anchoring such knowledge in real life experiences through embodied learning is a practical, adaptive challenge. Understanding emotional granularity is an acquired taste and a presupposition for building emotional resilience. While resilience can be understood as the ability to cope with a certain situation or stand one’s ground against others, true resilience goes beyond coping and withstanding. The process of building emotional resilience depends on being present to our emotional experiences and becoming more and more granular and adept at creating finer-grained narratives about them. We make them an object of reflection.
