For elite athletes, as for all high performers, emotion regulation plays a significant part in how body and mind respond in the flow of high-consequence moments that can separate the best from the rest. Emotional Intelligence (EI) concepts have long been recognised as playing a role in sustainable performance, and now research provides insight into the physiological mechanisms that underlie this link.
