Low Mood

Research evidence suggests that people who experience low mood have a reduced ability to differentiate emotions. The ‘ feeling wheel ‘, developed by Dr. Gloria Wilcox, is a great aid in pinpointing exactly what you are feeling right now. The idea goes like this, differentiate out your feelings to aid the reversal of low mood.

Here is an example, ‘I am Sad’, now look at all the differentiated emotions below Sad and see if you can sense in your body exactly what it is that you feel.
