Hacking Your Emotional Database

Do we have a choice when we became emotional?

In his interesting short video we get an insight into controlling our emotions.

Nature didn’t give us any tools to control our emotions. That is why psychologist Paul Ekman says you need to keep a diary of your emotions, writing what you are experiencing in great detail. This will enable you to determine what is triggering certain emotional responses. If you are able to access your “your emotional alert database,” Ekman says you will be able to call off “the attack dogs” and delay the actions that spring from your impulses.
