We know better than to let our negative emotions run the show. Yet when we are presented with a stressful situation, we don't actually think or apply logic.


Instead, we react impulsively. When things are going well, it's easy to apply self-improvement strategies. When things go south, it becomes much harder to stay rational.


It's important to practice putting some space between the event and your reaction. Distract yourself or walk away from the situation so you can address it later when you're in a better frame of mind.


Raising your awareness about how you manage your emotions can help you to become more balanced and more in control.
