Emotions are a part of our daily lives. Feeling emotional is the thing that makes us human, but the objective is to control our emotions instead of being controlled by them. If you are here reading this article, then you have already taken the first step towards gaining control over your emotions. You have accepted that your emotions have to be controlled. There are many ways to control your emotions and stop them from negatively affecting your life. Here is a list of some of the best ways that are scientifically proven and I have personally used to control my emotions. So, give it a read if you want to become a master of your emotions.

  • Try Breathing Exercises

The first thing that you need to start practicing is some basic breathing exercises and meditation. It is scientifically proven that even simply taking three deep breaths can really help you control your emotions. This is a very effective and instant solution. If you are feeling angry, or you are feeling anxious and stressed, taking three simple deep breaths can get you in control of your emotions, and it can help you react to a difficult situation logically and professionally. You should also perform short meditation sessions in the mornings to clear your head and improve your emotion controlling skills.

  • Distance Yourself from the Situation

Everyone faces difficult situations which make them emotional, but if you react to the situation in an emotional state, you aren’t doing yourself any favors. If you feel like your emotions are overpowering you, try to distance yourself from the situation. You can go for a walk and think about your problems logically and objectively. It will save you from making any mistakes or saying stuff that you may regret later on, and it will allow you to respond to the emotional situation in a logical and prepared way. This is a super effective and simple way to start controlling your emotions.

  • Suppress Your Ego

Almost all emotional problems and conflicts are caused due to inflated egos. Controlling and suppressing your ego is the final step of becoming a master of your emotions. This isn’t easy, of course, and it takes a long time of practice and a lot of emotional strength to suppress your ego. If you can control and suppress your ego, you will feel a lot more control over your emotions, and you will be able to express the facts and issues that would otherwise make you emotional, in a professional, logical and objective manner.

A great tip to get started is to understand that the opinions of others about you aren’t a reflection of your personality, and they are, just opinions. Respect that people have the right to disagree and have opposing opinions about matters, and you will find yourself more composed and confident in otherwise emotional situations.

  • Learn About the Psychology of Emotions

A great way to gain control over your emotions is to understand the science behind them. You should study some basic psychology in your spare time. This will allow you to assess your own emotions, and it will allow you to understand the feelings and actions of others better. If you can understand why people are doing the actions that make others or them emotional, you will be able to look at the situation from a logical and outside perspective without getting angry or sad.

 

 

  • The Simple and Ancient Way

I found a very simple yet very effective method to control anger and emotions in ancient Muslim culture. I read that if you are feeling angry, you should sit down if you are standing and lie down if you are sitting. Though this may seem like a very simple action, there is a lot of science behind it.

Our posture has a major role to play in the chemical nervous system. When we sit down in an anger-inducing situation, the body relaxes, and the amounts of hormones that are affecting our emotions are also suppressed. Also, you are more prone to do something rash when you are standing. By sitting down, you take yourself out of the situation where impulse and sudden emotions can make you take an action or say something that you may regret.

  • Try Some Cannabis

Cannabis is an amazing herb that is being hailed as a wonder drug these days, and because of recent developments and studies that prove it to be a safe and medically beneficial substance, cannabis has been legalized in a majority of American states.

Cannabis is another amazing method to relax and control your emotions instantly. It is known to reduce stress and anxiety, and it takes the users into a pleasant euphoric state. This is a great way to gain more control over your emotions and without stress and anxiety, you can think about emotional situations logically and come to effective solutions. There are many types of cannabis concentrates available in the market if you want a stronger and quicker control over your emotions.

  • Exercise

Another amazing and super effective way to control and let go of your emotion in a controlled environment is exercising. Many people opt for exercise and activities like boxing and kickboxing to let go of their anger and emotions. Keeping emotions bottled up is bad for you, and it can affect you negatively. You should have a controlled outlet for your emotions, and exercising at the gym is a super healthy and effective way to control your emotions and channel them into something healthy.

  • Express Yourself in a Controlled Manner

A common misconception that people have is that they think that suppressing and controlling one’s emotions is the same thing. If you keep your emotions and feelings bottled up and suppressed, you are bound to have an emotional meltdown, which is not healthy at all. You should try to control your emotions and express them in a professional and logical way. If something bothers you or makes you feel angry or uncomfortable, you should express your feelings but in an objective and unemotional way.
