Thoughts Regulate Emotions

We use our thoughts to create emotions. If we regulate our thoughts to manipulate our emotions, we immediately begin to feel the shift our thoughts have on our energy. If we think we are more confident, we begin to feel more confident. If we think we are strong and powerful, we start to feel that powerful energy. If we believe we are perfectly content and happy, then emotionally we will begin to feel that way. Today, set an intention to allow each thought to be a positive affirmation. Allow each thought to be a reflection of what we want our life to be and allow each thought to create our emotional state. The perfect test will be the next time we are sitting in traffic and feel a little frustrated, knowing that the shift will happen the moment we think about how relaxed we are. Next time we find our Selves in a stressful situation, think about how at ease we are. Next time we are not entirely confident in our ability, we convince our Selves that we are confident. Actively using our thoughts to regulate our emotional state. All we need is the belief in our power to create what we want and to let that belief fuel our dreams.

Allocated A Certain Number Of Breaths

It is said that we have a certain number of breaths in this lifetime. The longer the breath, the longer our life. When we become aware of each breath, we realize how our breath is a reflection of our emotions. A slow, steady breath means we’re relaxed and content. When we are anxious, fearful, rushing, or when blood pressure rises our breath is short and rapid. That slow and steadiness of the breath gives us the ability to balance our emotions. Our emotions are intimately connected with our breath because the breath creates a physiological response in the body. Stress is often accompanied by short and rapid breath, but stress can be reduced immediately with a slow and steady exhale. The steadiness of the breath steadies the mind, steadies the emotions, and steadies our energy. Several philosophers believe that the longer each breath and the longer each moment, the more control we have over our emotions and our quality of life. I set the intention to focus on long, deep breaths today knowing the length, quality, and steadiness of my breath is a perfect indication of the stability and the balance of my energy and quality of life. Everything I invite into this breath should be a perfect reflection of everything I want to invite into my life. With each breath today, I choose to make the most of every moment and allow what I create in this breath to be the beginning of everything I want to create in this life. I intend to take it one breath at a time today. I intend to create my life one breath at a time.


Meditation starts with a consistent focus on mindful breathing which helps us deal with stress, anxiety and negative emotions. The breath is the most accessible tool to create feelings of calm relaxation.  Yoga and meditation are free tools to alleviate stress, eliminate temper flare-ups and improve physical health and emotional wellbeing.
