Journalists are often encouraged to bury their emotions so they do not interfere with their work. But that is more likely to have the opposite effect.

When we can identify and manage our emotions, we feel in control and are better equipped to go about our jobs. 

In this week's podcast, we learn how to do this with two core skills: resilience and emotional intelligence. We are joined by Maja Šimunjak, senior lecturer in journalism at Middlesex University, and the author of a new book Managing Emotions in Journalism: A Guide to Enhancing Resilience.

We explore the broad range of emotions journalists can feel both in the field and at their desks -  the good and the bad - and a few easy techniques we can use to keep ourselves in check.
