How many times did you finish work feeling bad about something, only to realise the next day that everything was actually fine? It happens to all of us all the time, and the surprise is that it's not difficult to eliminate this day-to-day stress. Here's how I deal with it:
How I use ShareFeels.io with my team
We have a ritual; we call it: The 17:00 ritual. End of the day, every day at 17:00, we vote how we feel about the day; this is our moment of reflection.
Right after the vote, we start a conversation about why we feel the way we feel. The vote is, of course, anonymous. You have to practice your poker face, but don't worry, you get better with time. :)
Our days are like a rollercoaster. Maybe it was a busy day; maybe it was a workshop day; maybe it was a meeting day, maybe it was productive, maybe it wasn't.
Lift each other's mood
Regardless of how the group feels, it's important to take the time to reflect on how everybody feels about the day. You instantly see a different perspective, which helps you adjust how you feel about the day.
The real benefits
ShareFeels.io eliminates the awkwardness of difficult conversations. After the group voted, everyone can see the reality—you can't deny it—people feel in a certain way, a group conclusion, and it's objective, making it easy to talk about it.
It only takes minutes
End to end, it takes about 10-15 minutes, and it's worth every minute. We always feel much better in the end.
There's also a hidden treasure in this. Our 17:00 ritual creates a stronger bond between my colleagues and me, together is way more powerful than alone.
