When we use accurate and specific words to describe our emotions, we are able to process them with more efficiency and empowerment.

We can identify with our feelings without being defined or directed by them.

The mindful practice of affect labeling builds awareness, compassion, equanimity, and resilience.

Language gives us a neurobiological handle on what feels too amorphous and gauzy to grab.
