Why we must be emotionally agile to be successful
Without healthy emotional control in our lives we won't accomplish everything else we want to do. On today’s podcast we’re going to be talking about emotional control as a critical factor for our agility.
4 areas where emotional control or the lack there of can positively or negatively impact things
* Decision making
* Relationship success
* Day to day interactions
* Self care - physical and mental health
Cole, Michel, Teti, Emotional Regulation is “the ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experience with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable and sufficiently flexible to permit spontaneous reactions as well as the ability to delay spontaneous reactions as needed” (Cole, P. M., Michel, M. K., & Teti, L. O. (1994). The development of emotion regulation and dysregulation: A clinical perspective.)
Crystal Raypole lays out a variety of ways to achieve that healthy emotional balance. We won’t talk about all of them today, but I’ll put the link to the article in our show notes. https://www.healthline.com/health/how-to-control-your-emotions
* Learn to identify what emotions you are experiencing.
* Learn to regulate not repress
* Know when to express yourself and with whom
* Give yourself space as needed
If you or someone you know is struggling with emotions or general mental health please reach out to someone. Your personal well-being is far more important than anything else. While we're not trained to provide that support, we would be very happy to connect with the right person if you want.
