Gratitude is a divine attitude in the wisdom traditions. It takes you out from the ego self and takes you into the higher self. That higher state of consciousness initiates self repair, self regulation and healing. - Deepak Chopra

He who reigns within himself, and rules passions, desires, and fears, is more than a king. -John Milton

Emergency Self-Regulation Tools
* Deep breathing with an exaggerated exhale tells the brain that you are safe and can calm down.
* Exercise – even a little does a lot for calming the nervous system. Take a walk or stretch.
* Music can change a mood from negative to positive. Have some feel good tunes ready for use!
* Thinking about a person you love or a happy memory and holding that in your mind for at least 20 seconds.
* Identify what you are feeling – “name it to tame it.” Feelings are never wrong, they are important information that your body is giving you.
* Try a short meditation just focusing on your breath or maybe a phrase that helps you feel more centered.

Emotional self-regulation or emotion regulation is the ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experience with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable and sufficiently flexible to permit spontaneous reactions as well as the ability to delay spontaneous reactions as needed.[1] It can also be defined as extrinsic and intrinsic processes responsible for monitoring, evaluating, and modifying emotional reactions.[2] Emotional self-regulation belongs to the broader set of emotion regulation processes, which includes both the regulation of one's own feelings and the regulation of other people's feelings.

You can’t always control the wind, but you can control your sails. -Dr. Bob Chope

The control centre of your life is your attitude. -Anonymous

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. -Aristotle

What lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do. -Aristotle
