How to control emotions

Simply by admitting that I can take control of my mood, I learned to be more optimistic, even when happier, and thus always try to move towards a better life for myself.There are three basic ways moods happen: without our knowing; when  something happens, be it something good, or something bad; and because  we chose to do something about a mood, and deliberately change it. this is what I assumed first of all..Many of us have habits of thinking that put us in a bad mood.  Self-criticism, worrying, regretting – all of these are thought loops we  run.The time I find myself  doing one of these negative bad mood thought habits, I STOP…and I’m still committed to this strategy.I can create new, positive thought habits so as to soothe my nerves. I am in the habit of acknowledging and appreciating people and myself.

I let my vision focus and refocus  others and own positive future. Any time I spend in positive  thinking is time well spent!One simple way to refocus my thinking is to ask myself (and  others, by the way) questions that help focus on the positive, such as:  What am I grateful for? *What am I proud of? What am I happy about?  Who loves me? Who do I love? How have I contributed?Your words, both spoke out loud and spoken to yourself in your  thoughts, have great power to influence your mood. Phrases like “I  can’t…” as in, “I can’t afford that” will bring you down. Replace that  with, “I am preparing to…” Or even “I choose to…” and notice the  difference you feel.As a professional I tell people every time, THAT you describe something from your past as if it were  happening now (even if the last time it happened was just a moment ago)  you are bringing yourself down. There is great power in leaving the past  behind, beginning with your language, and being optimistic about the  possibility that the future may be different. The simple phrase, “I used  to…” or “Up until now I…” can help you to change your mood, and your  behavior, to a whole new possibility.One of the most powerful and simple ways to change mood is to  take action. A simple shift in your posture (look up, stand tall, chin  up) will lift your mood. Moving your body, i.e. exercise or jogging,  will elevate your mood, even if it’s not strenuous. Play upbeat music,  and watch what happens to your mood. Or, sing a song yourself!You can retrain your predominant mood by making some or all of these  suggestions standard daily practices. Start your day by reciting or  writing what you’re grateful for. Before you start working, and  throughout the day, stand up, look up, even jump up, and pick up your  mood. Acknowledge and appreciate others at every opportunity.We can protect our moods, and feel more harmony, if we work to control  our thoughts and feelings before stress hits. We can react with less  stress and also find a sense of humor.
