ABSTRACT

With the outbreak of Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19), all of us are experiencing a unique situation which is full of uncertainties, anxiety, loneliness, irritability and stress. The obvious consequence is loosing control over one’s own emotion and expressing negative emotion and consequently, lowering emotional and mental well-being. To maintain mental wellbeing, emotion regulation is important. Emotion regulation can be defined as the ability to regulate one’s own emotions and emotional responses. Adaptive emotional regulation is beneficial to mental health and thereby promotes adaptive functioning and sustainability whereas maladaptive emotional regulation (emotional dysregulation) may hamper mental health and thereby decrease competitive advantage. Adulthood is the most challenging phase of an individual’s life because adults start taking up different roles and responsibilities and thereby need to modify and control emotions accordingly.
