How to Manage Your Emotions

It’s hard not to get worked up emotionally when you’re in a tense conversation.

After all, a disagreement can feel like a threat.  

Managing emotions is especially important in situations when we are under pressure, and because of so many things happening around us today, learning to manage our emotions becomes a superpower.

Here are some examples of these situations wherein being able to manage our emotions becomes a great benefit.

  1. When we are giving and receiving feedback
  2. When we are dealing with challenging relationships
  3. When we are dealing with tight deadlines
  4. When we are not having enough resources
  5. When we are going through change
  6. When we are working through setbacks and failure
  7. When we are in a heated discussion

We all go through these different situations in life because it's part of the journey.  Life hands us with so many ups and downs which is why being able to deal with these emotions that come with each event is essential.

Being able to manage our emotions and how we respond is essential in this journey called life.

There are several things you can do to keep your cool during a conversation or to calm yourself down if you’ve gotten worked up.  

The first step is to learn how to identify the emotions you are feeling as well as learn to understand them. If you are able to name the emotion you are feeling, you have a better chance of understanding what you are feeling.  

Here are a few ways to help strengthen and improve your emotional intelligence and manage your emotions. ❤❤

  1. Take a look at the impact of your emotions
  2. Acknowledge and label your feelings
  3. Practice mindfulness
  4. Distract your mind and focus on something else

Intense emotions can provoke negative or unwanted thoughts that eventually trigger feelings of hopelessness or despair.  

But practicing these skills will help you master inner resolve and will give you perspective on what really matters in life.  

Therapy is another great way to manage and deal with your emotions.
