Emotional intelligence and emotion management can increase your happiness level.
Think about it: if you release negative emotions on the world, you will not only waste a lot of time, but it will also lead to all sorts of negative consequences.
Too much negativity, too many tantrums, and you may lose them.
Did you know that negative emotions also affect time management? If you have too much negativity swirling around inside of you, then this will manifest as procrastination. Just think of any occasion when you have rehashed an old argument to yourself long after it is over. Your partner or colleagues could not care less! They have long forgotten it, but you are still wasting time mulling it over. If you control your emotional responses, you will have more time for what is important, and so end up happier in the end.
If you cannot let things go, start meditating and invite calmness. Choose calm and there there will not be room to rehash things as often. Repeat.
Calm is the name of my best sidekick :)
