It is important to have an emotional inventory because it makes you be more aware of the thoughts and feelings that arise when you
have an experience. It makes you realize that they are somehow connected and helps you take a distance away from them in order to
observe everything that happened, realizing that there were maybe other alternatives to behave but as we live in autopilot, it is difficult
to make other behavioral choices. It has to do with emotional intelligence because, adding to what was said before, it helps you take
better decisions that will serve to your wellbeing and the wellbeing of your relationships. By recording situations that made you think,
feel and behave in a certain way you are able to analyze the causes and consequences that preceded and arose in a situation, thus,
being aware of their influence and the relationship between them and allowing you to have a better understanding of yourself and the
how and why you behave the way you do and which thoughts and emotions were beneath your reaction.
