Hello ladies, welcome to the new year and the first day of the best days of your life. Together we are going to learn emotional intelligence strategies and techniques to help you master your emotions while navigating your everyday life. Let's get started. Here are 4 ways to improve your emotional intelligence.
Consider the Emotional State
When you start to engage someone ask yourself, what is their emotional state? Depending on their emotional state you may want to adjust your approach. Perhaps they are not able to handle someone’s anger at that moment. Then you may want to consider changing your own emotional state.
Stop and Think
Improving Emotional Intelligence is doing things you know are best practices. Anytime you feel yourself moving outside your normal peaceful self, take a moment to stop, readjust your thoughts, and put yourself back together. Put yourself in a positive mindset so you can engage the person in a helpful and effective way.
Positive Talk and Self-Talk
Mastering your thoughts is something that can be improved with time, practice, and patience. While at the same time mastering the words you say to yourself, and others need just as much effort and attention. You want positive words coming out of your mouth, not only to others but also to yourself. Treating yourself with kindness with positive talk and self-talk will easily flow into how you treat others.
Most often people will tell you who they are and what they are willing to do. Just listen to what they say without interrupting them and watch their body language. When a person crosses their arms, they are telling you they don’t want to hear what you have to say or they don’t agree with what you are saying. When you are trying to talk to them and they are playing on their phone, not making eye contact with you, or talking about something else, they are not interested in what you are saying.
Accept what people say, even if you don't agree with it. Don't debate, manipulate, or guilt them into doing anything they don't want to do. Everyone has been given the freedom to choose. Learning to use emotional intelligence in your daily life is beneficial because it can help you build stronger and healthier relationships, succeed in school, and accomplish your personal and career goals. It can also help you connect with your feelings, make informed decisions about what is important to you, and help you turn your intentions into actions. Start today by making yourself a priority and learn the strategies and techniques to master your emotions.
