According to Oji Life Lab’s  co-founder Dr. Marc Brackett, emotion regulation is, simply put, about being able to handle our emotions in helpful ways.  Sounds easy, right?

While we can create awareness around emotional intelligence and emotional regulation, it’s often challenging to regulate our emotions without practicing the strategies available to do so.  

So how do we do it?  Check out this easy to follow guide…

Some of these strategies are available to you anywhere, in a minute or less.  Others will take a little longer but can be planned with intentionality.  

We never want to ignore our emotions, we want to give ourselves permission to feel them.  Learning to regulate our emotions increases our wellbeing and impacts our relationships.
