Emotional Regulation [#1448]

Question:

If a person is a very emotional type, and his mind becomes frazzled whenever he becomes very emotional or very reactive (whether it is a positive or a negative emotion), what is the advice for such a person, to get his mind in control of his emotions?

Answer:

He needs to learn how to build his power of thought. Practically speaking, he can learn Da Es Machshovosecha” (Getting To Know Your Thoughts) and Da Es Daatcha” (Utilizing Your Daas).
