If you know children, you can probably foresee when a child is about to have an emotional breakdown--when they are overtired, hungry, or hurried! Unfortunately, adults are often unaware of the great impact of low energy and high stress on their own emotional lives. We should take notice of childrens' activities such as nap time, quiet time, and story time...all designed to help them relax. Adults can benefit, too, from regular rest and relaxation to restore physical and emotional balance.
Rest and relaxation are essential for renewal and emotional balance.
A positive emotional life comes from the conscious guiding and directing of our internal energy. When we are unaware of the subtle influences that affect our moods, it is easy to become dominated by our emotions, and we tend to identify ourselves completely by our emotions, rather than just a single component of our lives.
Convert your emotional energy to health-enhancing energy! Through meditation, massage, and mind-body exercises such as yoga, tai chi, or qi gong, you can promote the endless cycle of internal negative energy into beneficial physical or spiritual energy.
