“God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December” (Sir James Matthew Barrie). Think of a time when you went someplace, such as a carnival or ball game. Remember the scents, sights, sounds or shouts of excitement, tastes of delectable food, and feel of the seats or warm gripping hands that were held. We can consciously think of positive things and program our subconscious to accept them automatically, thus creating peak mental states to operate and live in. Smells are especially persuasive and easy to recall in our memory banks. These mental pictures or movies we create can act as an anchor to ground us back to a calm, cool, and collected state of mind when uncomfortable feelings or frustration arise.
