Have a daily routine
Having a daily routine helps to give you some structure to your day so you are less likely to feel emotionally adrift and pulled in all directions.
Eat healthily and keep hydrated

Staying hydrated is also important so drink water fairly regularly through out the day and avoid fizzy sodas.
Spend more time in Nature

Do some physical exercise daily
This has so many benefits for your overall health and well-being and helps to keep you emotionally balanced too.

Be aware of your hormones
Hormonal changes can also cause emotional upheaval especially around pregnancy and the menopause. Keep a track of your monthly cycle too so you are aware of when you are likely to feel more emotional such as a few days before your cycle starts.
Watch your alcohol intake
If you enjoy a drink or two just be aware that alcohol can make you feel more emotional, especially if you over indulge. Plus you are likely to feel more emotional the following day.
Most importantly of all, acknowledge and feel your emotions. The latest research is now discovering that trapped emotions can be stored in every cell of your body. When we store negative emotions or traumatic experiences without processing them they can have a physical effect on our health overtime. Your chakra system will also be affected.
Be kind to yourself and don't beat yourself up for being emotional. It means you are a sensitive human and that can actually be a gift!
