Emotional strategy to control anxiety.

Researchers from the university of Illinois found the way people regulate their emotions can influence their anxiety. Those who plan ahead and consider how to respond positively to challenging problems tend to suffer less from anxiety than those who ignore, hide or repress their feelings, the study found. In a series of questionnaires researchers asked 179 healthy men and women how they managed their emotions and how anxious they felt in various situations. The team analysed the results to see if different emotional strategies were associated with more or less anxiety. Te study revealed that those who engage in am emotional regulation strategy tended to have less social anxiety than those who avoid expressing their feelings.
