Take Control of Your Emotions TODAY!

Life presents a range of situations that produce a spectrum of both positive and negative feelings. Instead of allowing feelings to manifest and grow into undesirable symptoms, tools, such as journaling, help uncover issues and enable us to make better choices. This journal was created by Maria Elena Misito to help people understand their emotions, set and achieve positive goals, uncover the whys behind their feelings, and learn how to manage them in a healthy, positive way. By using this guided journal, readers will experience personal growth, experience less stress and negativity, and be equipped to live in the present moment with a positive mindset.

The Benefits of Journaling

There are many physical, psychological, and emotional benefits of journaling. Journaling allows you to tap into feelings that are stuck in your psyche and if left untouched, can lead to undesirable physical and emotional symptoms.

Journaling will allow you to remove negative and unhelpful thoughts, gain clarity, and allow you to have positive professional, personal, and interpersonal relationships in your life.

Once you begin this journey, you will begin to understand your patterns of behavior—who you are and why you feel what you feel. This will allow you to move forward in your life in a consciously aware state.


Sometimes it is difficult to identify how we truly feel. Anger and frustration are acted out in unhealthy ways and if we could name the emotion we are actually feeling, it would help us create a healthier more harmonious emotional life for ourselves and those around us. Using a feeling chart can help identify exactly what you are experiencing emotionally. If you are identifying with anger and frustration, it is important to know that anger is a secondary emotion used to protect yourself from more vulnerable feelings such as hurt, worry, or fear. There is always a primary emotion that is felt right before the anger. Using this feeling chart will help you get into the mindset of being able to identify your emotions on a regular basis that will provide you with emotional freedom.
