It only takes a seemingly small trigger to call in a powerful emotion.

Anyone who's ever flown off the handle, stewed over conflict at work, or found themselves in a mysterious bout of happiness or sadness knows this. But the answer isn't to deny or suppress these natural, powerful, and, yes, sometimes unpleasant forces in our lives.

But emotions aren't bad...

According to Lifebook founder and serial entrepreneur, Jon Butcher, "Emotions are body wisdom." And you can increase your emotional intelligence with two things: insight and control. Once you have both, you can use what Jon calls "emotion recipes" to experience your favorite emotions on a regular basis.

Even if you've tried everything to gain emotional control and insight (journaling, therapy, meditation), these tips from Lifebook could be the missing component to reclaim your life and master your emotions.
