How to control Emotions
Have you ever felt stress, anxiety, depression, or anger was controlling you? Do you often act impulsively, doing or saying things you know you shouldn’t, only to regret it later? Or do you feel disconnected from your feelings and you are emotionally numb? These are signs that you need to work on building your emotion.
By keeping emotions in check, you’ll improve your communication with others and bring your life into balance.
Learn to quickly relieve stress
Being able to manage and relieve stress is the key to staying balanced, focused to face challenges of life.
There are countless techniques for dealing with stress. Talking face-to-face with an understanding friend, exercise, yoga, and meditation are the few.
Quick Stress Relief
The best way to reduce stress quickly is by taking a deep breath and using your senses, what you see, hear, smell, taste, and touch or by viewing a favourite photo, smelling a specific scent, listening to a favourite piece of music, tasting a piece of gum, or hugging a pet, you can quickly relax and focus yourself.
Use emotional intelligence
Develop an ability to identify, understand, and use your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress and anxiety, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. For happiness and success in your relationships, career, and personal goals, EQ matters just as much as the IQ.
Emotional control depends on:
You’re able to control impulsive feelings and behaviours, manage your emotions in healthy ways, take initiative, follow through on commitments, and adapt to changing circumstances.
You recognize your own emotions and how they affect your thoughts and behaviour. You know your strengths and weaknesses and have self-confidence.
You can understand the emotions, needs, and concerns of other people, pick up on emotional cues, feel comfortable socially, and recognize the power dynamics in a group or organization.
If you’re able to develop and maintain good relationships, communicate clearly, inspire and influence others, work well in a team, and manage conflict.
The meditations focus firstly on your breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, and then on your current emotional state.
