Emotional agility, not yet gained much importance in Indian context. The very term primarily coined by Susan David, a psychologist at Harvard medical school (2013) which has been categorised as, showing both negative and positive emotions are important part of human health growth and environment. This study examined the emotional agility of individuals in Indian context. The research aims to provide importance to every emotion in order to cope with situations during unpredictable circumstances for a full-fledged life. The sample (N = 12) under two age categories i.e., 20 to 30 years and 40 to 56 years, were asked to express themselves on semi structured questions based on emotional agility (being flexible with thoughts and feelings so that one can respond optimally to everyday situations) through a qualitative research for a period of 8 months. It has been expected that the working individuals would reflect a low emotional agility in the case of a new environment and thus seen in the research. The research though focused on the Indian context can’t describe it on a whole, individuality may play an important role in case of limitation of the research. Nevertheless, the main role of the study is to spread awareness about the importance of every kind of emotion.
