Every emotional response is a unique experience. What triggers an unpleasant emotion today may not even register tomorrow. Perhaps right now you are at home with your family for what seems like an eternity and you feel like losing it. Tomorrow, same home, but wake up in a calm state and you happily eat your breakfast and plan your day.
The strategies we can use to regulate emotions are limitless, depending on the situation and the emotions involved. But just like your emotional responses vary, the strategies that work for you today might not work for you tomorrow. And the strategies that work for you might not work for your partner or child.
