Emotional Regulation Simplified

Updated: Mar 27

Emotional Regulation Simplified

Here's a simple definition of what it means to be Emotionally Regulated.

We have all had emotional reactions that are not aligned with our feelings. 

Applied Emotional Intelligence Social Media Series about Emotional Regulation
Applied Emotional Intelligence Social Media Series from The Nexus Initiative


- Fear shows up as anger

- Powerlessness shows up as aggression

- You have a "big" reaction to something "small."

- Don't express an emotional need "in the moment" and wait to express it "two weeks later."

When someone is "Emotional Regulated," they show the right emotion at the right time, in the right amount.

Emotional Regulation - Simplified

- Fear shows up as fear, 

- Powerless shows up as acceptance of powerlessness, 

- Small things show up as small things,

- Frustrations you experience now, show up "now" as opposed to getting "stuffed" for two weeks.


Applied Emotional Intelligence - Social Media Series

Today, we are launching a new Social Media Series called "Applied Emotional Intelligence." The focus of it is self-explanatory in that it will focus on "applying" Emotional Intelligence techniques in or out of the workplace. At The Nexus Initiative, we are all about the real-world application of skills, and that is why this series focuses on "Applied" Emotional Intelligence.
