Two ways to boost your emotional intelligence

Two ways to boost your emotional intelligence

Here are two really cool exercises to increase your emotional intelligence:

  1. Mirror other people’s body language: This first exercise will not only help you connect better with the person across the table, it’ll also make you more emotionally self-aware. It’s one of those “fake it till you make it” scenarios, which help you build better habits.
  2. Convince yourself that your failures result from things you can change: This second exercise helps you become an optimist. Optimistic people continue to try, because they believe their actions make a difference, and are thus more likely to succeed.

An important part of the EQ equation is emotional self-regulation.

IQ is usually what we think determines success. But Goleman’s research led him to believe that EQ, emotional intelligence, is just as, if not more important, to find happiness.

 Being self-aware simply means that you’re able to recognize and label your feelings.
