Thank you for your question. There are lots of ways to control your emotions in the moment! Some of these ways include deep diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, grounding exercises, mindfulness meditation, practicing positive mantras or positive self-talk, guided imagery and visualization, and journaling or stream of consciousness writing.
I hope this has been helpful!

I suggest learning mindfulness techniques and being present to be in the moment.
