Calming Alarm Clocks for a Better Mood - Takeuchi KeishÃ
To control mood swings, says Selby, we need to sidestep the negative thoughts that generate our moods by shifting attention instead to sensory experiences. This breaks the free fall into an anxious or depressed emotional state. “This attention shift gets you out of past-future fixations and into the present moment,” he explains. By practicing this first step, you’ll get more adept at stopping a bad mood in its tracks.
Now that you’ve temporarily halted the downward spiral, expand your awareness to include the breathing experience in your torso. Say to yourself: “I’m also aware of the movements in my chest and belly.” Don’t make any special effort to breathe; rather, feel the natural flow of your breath as it moves in and out.
