Why get to know and regulate your emotions?
An emotion (e.g. joy, anger, sadness, guilt, pride, etc.) is above all information about yourself and about what is happening of importance to you in a given moment. Be aware that an emotion:
- is triggered very quickly in you.
- doesn’t happen by chance.
- must be taken into account in the very moment in which it arises.
- is useful to you if it is appropriate to the situation. If not, it is unhelpful.
- influences your thoughts.
- influences your behaviour by provoking you to react in a certain way.
- is accompanied by physiological changes in your body that can be
disturbing when they are intense.
Although usually lasting only several seconds or minutes, emotions can have strong and lasting effects on you. They therefore have a far greater influence than you’d imagine on your daily decision-making, your relationships with others, your performance and even your psychological and physical health. It is therefore very important that you know how to identify and regulate them when necessary. Dr Mood’s job is to help you do this!
