what do you do to control your emotions - especially anger, jealousy, hatred etc.
I just think.. "Is this really worth getting upset over?" Sometimes if i get upset over something unreasonable by the time i'm done thinking of if it's really worth getting mad over i'm usually not even mad by then anymore. So logical thinking and time are the two answers i've come up with...
i know my emotions are just emotions and i dont let them run my everyday life
This answer may seem odd it first but just go with it and you will see what I mean. You can't control emotions.That would be like trying to control the natural elements. Emotions are your bodies way of responding to what it thinks is danger. Your thoughts FORM your emotions, notice how emotions only come after you think about something in a certain way. Your emotions and your thoughts are linked and unless you observe this connection in yourself you will always think that emotions come from situations when they actually stem from "your" mental perception of the situation. You create your own reality. I would suggest reading books like Eckhart Tolle's "A New Earth" for more in this topic.
Train yourself to be like Arnold Swarchenegger, in the movie Terminator.
To train your children to control their emotions better, simple whenever your kids cry, either (1) slap him/her for that (2) Take away his/her dinner for that (3) take away TV previlage for the rest of the day for that (4) get him/her to do push ups for that
And if you got a little boy, when he cry, whenever he cry or get emotional insult him by calling him girl name. This is call tough love
Mindfulness is my way to control and stay in mental balance. Getting carried away in emotions is something I call a weakness. Practice of Vipassana meditation and cultivation of mindfulness help me maintain mental poise.
My recent hubs describe mindfulness from several angles.
We work from the theory that emotions are movements in the energy body that turn into physical feelings.
So firstly, notice where you are feeling the emotion in your body. Practice taking notice where the real feelings are - like with anger, it might be a flash that starts in your stomach and then moves up fast.
Put your hands where the most profound feelings can be felt (heat, pressure, trembling, pain), rub them round in a circle there, breathe deeply and think/say, "Soften and flow!"
Pay attention to what happens to the feelings, you want to get the energy to flow out somewhere to relieve the pressure.
Gets a lot easier with practice!
I find that physical exercise is the best way. I walk away when I feel my emotions taking control. I walk until I have time to think things through rationally and put things in a non-emotional perspective. Only then can I walk back and properly deal with whatever caused my emotions to flair.
