What adjectives characterize your best self? You are activated, caught off guard, or have an impulse to say or do something you might regret. You feel a shift in your thinking or body or both. Think of adjectives or an image that helps your best self appear in vivid detail, or look at an object that reminds you.

This should always be the last step. There are a few final aspects of this kind of emotion regulation to keep in mind. Because regulation requires brainpower — moving from automatic and unhelpful to deliberate and helpful strategies is hard work — it also depends on factors such as diet, exercise and sleep. Too much sugar or refined flour can cause our blood glucose to spike and then plummet, which affects cognitive functioning and self-control.
Too little physical activity also has a negative effect on mental capacity and moods, as does poor quality or insufficient sleep. Sleep serves a restorative function. Inadequate sleep is associated with reduced connections between the brain regions responsible for cognitive control and behavior and the use of effective emotion regulation strategies.
We can take two other measures to safeguard our overall well-being — the first is to do things we love.

Daily practice enhances our ability to be present, accept the feelings that arise, and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by them.

Along with permission to feel, we must also give ourselves permission to fail. When that happens, we can only try again — take a deep breath or two, envision our best selves, and start over. Courage might even mean seeking professional help when all else fails.
