Hello REM community,

Have you ever wondered how to invite more of the emotions you desire into your life? It’s time to unveil the secret recipe – practicing the very emotions you want to cultivate. Just like a skilled artist, you can paint the canvas of your life with the colors of positivity, joy, and fulfillment and like these things a lot of people don’t realize that emotions are something that you can actually practice! So, let’s dive into the art of emotional exercise and unleash a world of vibrant emotions!

Embrace the Power of Emotions: Emotions are the colors that bring depth and meaning to our experiences. They shape our perceptions, actions, and overall well-being. By recognizing the impact of emotions in our lives, we can take an active role in cultivating the ones that bring us happiness, peace, and fulfillment.

Identify Desired Emotions: Start by identifying the emotions you want to invite more of into your life. Is it joy, gratitude, love, serenity, or enthusiasm? Reflect on what these emotions mean to you and how they contribute to your overall well-being. Get specific and create a list of the emotions you wish to practice and experience.

Create Positive Emotional Triggers: Once you’ve identified your desired emotions, find triggers that evoke those feelings within you. It could be a favorite song that uplifts your spirits, a gratitude journal to reflect on blessings, or engaging in activities that bring you joy. Surround yourself with people, places, and things that elicit the emotions you want to practice.

Engage in Mindful Presence: Practice being fully present in the moment to experience and savor the desired emotions. Mindfulness allows you to engage with your surroundings, thoughts, and emotions without judgment. Take moments throughout the day to pause, breathe, and intentionally connect with the emotions you want to cultivate. Or, point them out to yourself as you experience them and really savor them. Focus on what they feel like to your body.Where do you feel them? What does it feel like? Can you make them grow? Sometimes we are in the midst of the emotions that we want to feel more of, but we do recognise that we have to stop and let them in.

Express Gratitude: Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for positivity. You can cultivate a daily gratitude practice by expressing appreciation for the blessings in your life. This practice shifts your focus from what’s lacking to what’s abundant, nurturing a sense of contentment and joy.

Choose Empowering Thoughts: Become aware of your thought patterns and choose thoughts that align with the emotions you wish to cultivate. Challenge negative or limiting thoughts and replace them with positive affirmations. Train your mind to focus on the good, the possibilities, and the potential for growth.

Practice Emotional Resilience: Life presents us with challenges, but it’s our emotional resilience that helps us bounce back stronger. Cultivate resilience by reframing setbacks as opportunities for growth, seeking support when needed, and engaging in self-care practices that nurture your emotional well-being.

Remember, like any skill, practicing emotions takes time and effort. Be patient and gentle with yourself along the way. Embrace the process, and with dedication and consistency, you’ll witness the transformational power of practicing the emotions you desire.

If you feel like an emotion is one that you haven’t experienced a lot of, it can feel strange at first. Sometimes even provoking anxiety, but if you continue to practice it, (sit with it ) it can be extremely rewarding
