Keep Yourself Happy
Emotions can be volatile things when not nurtured and processed properly. If you’re about to fling lewd gestures from your car to another driver who cut you off in rush hour, verbally snap at the painfully slow bank teller who’s just learning his job, or about to alienate a friend or family member with a snarky, petty comment because of your hostile mood, read on!
1. Finger on Your Pulse
Stay tuned in to you and all that’s going on internally as you change environments and interactions throughout the day. It’s easy to get so wound up in your emotions that you are oblivious to the turbulence you are creating in and around you until it’s too late. Learn your unique internal signs which signal an approaching emotional blowout. Physical clues often manifest as sudden tensions in your body or parts of your body, pressure in your chest or head, or an accelerated heart rate. When you feel any of these volcanic emotions, slow down and breathe!
2. Face Your Furies
Ignoring and repressing your emotions is like ignoring that little crack in the dam and hoping for the best. No bueno. Instead of fighting yourself, physically separate yourself from the immediate environment, and embrace those emotions for a moment. When you allow yourself the right to feel emotions, you begin to see and understand the natural transience of them, making it easier to release them. If you can’t step away from a situation when these moments come along, you still can diffuse them with breathing, consciously relaxing your muscles, and realigning your perspective with the truth of the moment (instead of transferring negativity from an unrelated situation).
“It’s not about making someone else happy or them making you happy. You have to be satisfied and happy with yourself and your own life – you have to feel whole. When you feel whole you will automatically put out the type of energy which will also attract a person that they themselves are whole. Thus, two wholes can come together and form a greater whole – this is far more powerful than two parts trying to make but a single whole.” – Hayden ext. 5424
3. Regaining Power
Allow yourself room to breathe with your life’s schedule and demands. Giving yourself rest and tranquility everyday to recharge is essential to fighting negative emotional buildup. Meditation, quiet alone time, communing with nature are all ways to give yourself that necessary emotional recharge. When you keep your emotional highway clear, you regain your personal power, instead of falling victim to pent-up emotional baggage, which you then dump on the closest unsuspecting victim.
4. The Impermanence of Emotion
It’s important to realize the transitory nature of emotions so as to not become attached to them. To feel is to be human, and your emotions are there to heighten that life experience. While positive emotions are consciously embraced, too often the negative ones are ignored and repressed, easily leaving you as volatile as a ticking time bomb. Negative emotions are healthy when they are channeled through appropriate expression, acceptance, and release. So give yourself, and everyone around you a break by embracing each moment along with the emotion it brings, then releasing it fully so that you can invite the next moment in.
