Emotional intelligence refers to the ability identify, understand, manage, and utilize emotions adaptively. High emotional intelligence has been linked with positive physical health outcomes. The majority of previous research in the area suggests that emotional intelligence acts as a facilitator of health behaviour. The research on the effects that exercise have on the regulation and management of emotions suggest the possibility of a new direction for research. Positive health behaviours may influence individual levels of emotional intelligence.
