We can learn to manage our emotions but putting ourselves in situations that trigger them doesn’t help. Therefore if you wake up late, go to work late and arrive in a bad mood or worried, then the lateness was the trigger. Therefore to manage your emotions consider what the trigger was so you can avoid it next time.
Also consider what you are communicating when going into to work late. Usually you are suggesting a statement and it is a nonverbal action. Are you stating an attachment style or are you saying that you don’t like your job anymore. Are you sabotaging a possibility of a promotion because you doubt your abilities? These statements can be subconscious acts that you don’t even realise, but to everybody else they seem loud.
