Struggling to Control Emotions
My Past is to Blame

by John

Hi

I am working as a trader in the financial markets and I have been having a lot of problems controlling emotions such as excitement fear and panic. Every time my mind gets hijacked and i make an impulsive decision. Having learnt about the role of the amygdala in creating emotional reactions I have come to the conclusion that my traumatic childhood may be to blame. This was a time when I was often fearful and panicky. I have begun some meditation recently to help me control my thoughts and hence my emotions. Is there anything else I can do? Thank you very much for reading!

The Mind Control Tips page suggests a list of activities, which can help to still emotional turmoil. You have started off on that path. Wish you all success!
