Manage your emotions to maximise your learning

How do our feelings and emotions get in the way of learning? What can we do to manage them more effectively? Develop emotional management intelligence

Everybody has feelings and emotions. What is different for each of us, are the things that trigger those feelings. Sometimes it can be because we are left out of a group, other times because we don't achieve the success we want. Some people are frustrated by lack of progress and others feel annoyed when their freedom is limited.

Researchers place emotional states into two categories, positive and negative emotions.

I like to categories our emotions into 'threat-state emotions' and 'safe-state emotions'. Threat-state emotions are not necessarily bad for us as they direct us to act using something called the fight or flight response. However, spending too long with a 'threat-state emotion' can limit and stop entirely our capacity to learn.

The key here is to learn to manage our emotional states because when we experience lots of threat-state emotions we can't learn, which means that we can't grow and develop, which leads to feelings of depression, anxiety and feeling directionless. This negatively impacts our ability to make friends, engage and school and be motivated to learn. Which them becomes a self-fulfilling cycle of disengagement and perpetual threat-state emotions can also start to negatively impact our physical health. Have you ever felt so worried that you feel physically sick to your stomach? This is an example of feelings impacting our physical health too.

I am delighted that my Year 8 son did this course. We both found the information on his learning preferences and styles very insightful and it has helped him work out ways to motivate himself and to be more engaged at school. Thanks, Rosie, I'd say we'll be back for a refresher before Year 12!
