Emotion regulation is the ability to manage and respond to an emotional experience effectively. It typically involves a choice of emotions, when to have them, and how to express them.
For example, if the regulation goal is to reduce a negative emotion, one can choose a distraction to stay calm. Emotion-regulation abilities are regarded as crucial for a healthy psychological life.
