Are you ready for one of the most powerful teachings I have ever found?
Emotions only last 90 seconds. You heard me right.
There is actually a neurological surge of chemicals that courses through your body when you have an intense emotional trigger and reaction.
That surge of chemicals passes within 90 seconds.
If you are still experiencing the emotion after 90 seconds, it's because you're attaching your thoughts to that initial experience of the emotion, and you're extending it with your thought patterns.
Your tiny action for today is to take that moment when you have an intense emotional trigger, and remove yourself from the situation and breathe.
Breathe and try to focus all of your mental energy that you can on the sensation in your body. Feel the physical sensations of that surge of chemicals moving through your body. Name out loud the sensations you are feeling as they change.
If you can focus on the sensation of the emotion, instead of on the emotional story, then you can experience that your emotions only last 90 seconds.
When you get good at this, you can keep yourself from going deep into a binge whenever you experience emotional upset. Instead you can feel what you are feeling, and let it move through and not eat about it.
This has changed my life and so many others’ lives, as well. I hope it deeply impacts yours.
Your emotions only last 90 seconds. Talk about freedom.
