Most of us aren't prepared to take action, when our lives are suddenly falling apart. We often feel like victims of our own circumstances; powerless. If you've lost a job, just ended a relationship or if you find yourself going through a period of uncertainty, improved emotional intelligence can help make that journey more manageable. There are times when we simply have to tear down the old, so we can build anew. Now may be the time to move toward the emotional life you've wanted, but were never sure where to begin. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. It is generally said to include three skills: 1. Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others; 2. The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problems solving; 3. The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to help another person regulate their own.
