I asked this in our family today (we are ages 7 and 11, with 2 adults).
We all came up with more than one answer. Here they are.
“People don’t get mad at you or annoyed at you, and they feel comfortable around you.”
“I feel better about myself. When I know that my anger could have taken me to yellow or orange, but instead I stayed on blue, I feel proud of myself.”
“You don’t make drama. You don’t make little things into big deals.”
“You don’t say or do things that you regret later.”
“You have time to think about things.”
“People feel more relaxed around you, and show you their best selves. It’s a lot more fun.”
In our family, we’re calling this the “Blue List.” What’s on your Blue List? Send us your ideas, and we’ll add them on.
