Navit’s tips for developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Our ability to understand both our own emotions as well as those of other people relies on our emotional intelligence (EQ). We know today that EQ can be often more important and beneficial than IQ. EQ is mostly developed through our social interactions.
A great way to improve our EQ is to practice the following strategies:
- Carefully assess your own emotional reactions.
- Record your experiences and emotions in a journal.
- Try to see situations from the perspective of another person.
Outside the therapy room
“Travelling within and across countries and cultures has been always a huge source of inspiration and enlightenment. Meeting new people from different cultures and visiting new places allows me to develop my curiosity and motivation to life. I enjoy sharing this passion with family and together we strive to use opportunities for travel to learn and develop our understanding of life and of our human nature.”
What I’m reading…
THE UNTETHERED SOUL – Michael A. Singer
“This is a great book to learn and/or teach Mindfulness. The book begins by walking you through your relationship with your thoughts and emotions, helping you uncover the source of and fluctuations of your inner energy. It then delves into what you can do to free yourself from the habitual thoughts, emotions and energy patterns that limit your consciousness.”
My therapy song…
I love listening to this song, especially while travelling with my family. It’s a song that enhances an immediate connection with nature and creates a sense of freedom.
