When I can't quite put my finger on what I'm feeling, but it is unsettled or unsure, I usually refer to it as icky. It can happen when and an idea doesn't feel quite right, someone's name pops up in a text, or I think of something I don't want to do or have done in the past. I know it isn't a good feeling, but I haven't given it the energy to determine why and it just sits in my brain and stomach. Sometimes I acknowledge the icky and choose not to dig in. Other times I'll let my brain wander and try to work it out. That extra few minutes of noodling can be enough to realize the icky is unwarranted (it almost always is!). It's a good feeling to get over the icky.
