Emotion is part of the human experience, so we may as well benefit from it. I love to throw little fits, they actually bring me joy. At this point I should give you an example, a glimpse of my crazy.

Say I miss my turn to take the quick route to yoga because I am not being mindful, I throw a quick fit. It may be an expletive, an exasperated breath, or a little punch to the steering wheel. The more dramatic or ridiculous my reaction, the more likely that I am to giggle at myself. I don’t deny my emotion, I simply quickly move through it.

With my frustration noted and expelled, I pivot. I start affirming that I will make all the lights, traffic will be lighter than anticipated, and I will arrive at the perfect time. I take control of my thoughts and emotions, and I move on from a more neutral point.
