As moms we have all lost our shiz and sometimes it just comes out of nowhere. One thing happens and we snap or get upset, not really knowing exactly why it happened. Our emotions are connected to all five of our senses and travel through our bodies. But have you ever stopped to think about the effect these emotions on your body, those around you and your business. Today we are talking with Lauren Hyland about the ripple effect of our emotions and why emotional intelligence is so important! This is am episode that is going to give you tools to handle the upcoming family gatherings with more confidence and grace for yourself!


“Lauren’s trendy title is ’The Female Empower(er)’ but what that actually means is she is a life & business coach who focuses on personality assessment, emotional intelligence and purpose to empower female entrepreneurs and business owners. She is married to her college sweetheart Ryan, has 2 crazy toddlers and coaches girls volleyball at her alma mater. Lauren is an enneagram 8, hyper choleric so there won’t be any fluff, like ever.”




Quotes I loved:

“ Emotions come from our five senses. Our emotions are created in our limbic system. “


“ Your brain has already processed and been through the situation and the emotions so it flies through your limbic system and you go into rational brain thinking.”


“No one likes to sit in uncomfortable emotions. One of the biggest obstacles to growing in your emotional intelligence and self-awareness is the tendency to avoid discomfort.”


“Everything we do today is adding comfort. We want to add comfort to a client.”


“I just made myself apathetic so I didn’t feel. This caused me to have triggers”


“You go from apathetic to something sets me off and my body and my mind can’t get me out of that sate. It stings because you don’t want to go to those emotions. But to get through them you have to lean into them.”


“You have to get uncomfortable to work through your emotions.”


“We have to make tons of risky decisions in our businesses and a lot of people fall pray to fear, which keeps them from reaching their full potential and scaling.”


“Try not to classify your emotions as bad or good. Emotions are emotions you shouldn’t feel guilty about feeling something. What you should do is figure out why you are feeling something in the first place.”


“When you are reading a book, listening to music, or watching a movie and you feel yourself having an emotion, whatever that is. Try and assess in the moment why you are feeling that, what part of it are you relating to you, what is happening, what are you feeling physically, head to tow assessment and try to figure out the why. If you can be contouse of why your body is reacting then you will be able to find your triggers, and stop the initial reaction.”


“Our emotions are a ripple effect. One thing can be the pebble in the water that will touch everything.”
