Let’s take three components of our Almond Scotch Cookies recipe and create a grounded recipe that we can use to bake our Balance-Your-Moods reconstruction:

1

Scotch, please… At times we all feel the desire to turn to something that will help calm us down or make us feel better. Rather than an addictive or unhealthy crutch, find and use helpful techniques to help balance your moods. I am starting to be able to identify any extreme mood swings now. As soon as I feel one coming on, I automatically read my reconstruction, go for a walk or meditate.

2

Batter up! Mix in calmness, balance and serenity.

As I continue to engage in self-care activities, my extreme moods never last long. I am naturally becoming a more peaceful, grounded, balanced person.

3

Save your cookies. Don’t let your moods overwhelm you or take over. Take time every day to protect and honor yourself by being gentle, compassionate and kind. I naturally acknowledge that I am a good, kind soul who deserves happiness and stability. My moods are automatically balancing out and I feel grounded, regardless of what is going on in my life.

I remember identifying that I may have been reacting in an extreme manner to my mother when she tried to tell me what to do on Monday evening. Instead of continuing to yell over the phone, I told her I had to take care of myself and that I would call her back when I felt calmer and able to talk in a healthier way. I hung up the phone and decided to go for a nice walk. After my walk, I sat in a peaceful, quiet space and meditated. Amazing sensations of happiness and positive calming energy embraced me in my peaceful safe place. I automatically take the time to engage in useful activities that keep me feeling calm, grounded and content. On Tuesday after work, I enjoyed a relaxing swim and a massage. Self-care, on a regular basis helps keep me healthy and stable, and my moods are now naturally balanced all the time. The following Thursday, even though I was sad after a brief argument with my parter, it felt different and not so intense. There were no overwhelming negative feelings this time, and the sadness seemed to automatically melt away from me. My mind was filled with nurturing, grounded thoughts that made me feel at ease and content. It seems like nothing is extreme, or overly stressful anymore. Regardless of who I am with or what is going on in my life, I feel grounded, balanced and calm in my core.

By identifying mood swings, you can start to understand them.
