The Emotional Gym

Make a decision to start the Emotional Gym and embrace and incorporate it every day for thirty days.

Feel the emotions of gratitude, love, peace and joy 10 times a day. On a scale of 1-10, if 1 is a little and 10 is a lot, feel the emotions at a 3 or a 4. Feel each emotion for about 5-10 seconds each time. You are “pulsing” the emotion 20 times at a low level of feeling. Don’t try to make the emotion last longer and don’t try to make it more intense. Work for a series of ten pulses of gratitude for about 10 seconds over and over until you have ten. Then do the same thing with the other primary emotions of love, peace, and joy. This purpose is to learn to get to the feeling of each of these emotions instantly, on call.

These emotions can become the ambient emotional sound-track of your life. You are building emotional “muscle” and you are starting to work on mood predisposition.
