Default managing emotions so you don't lose your mind and do/say things you regret later

In my experience, having multiple partners, or being with someone who does, tends to bring up a lot of intense emotions. Heck, relationships do, period. Jealousy, guilt, sadness, manic euphoria of NRE - coping with all these can be really difficult.

I'm curious how people manage their emotional ups and downs. What techniques do you use? How do you avoid becoming totally reactive when emotional and doing and saying things you regret later?

To start the conversation I'll offer up as fodder part of my personal take on this issue which I wrote about here: Controlling emotional reactions

The title is not quite right, because it's not so much about controlling our emotions as it is about keeping from losing our minds when emotional.
