Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) mainly means the capacity to identify your emotions and channelizing them in a way that will be useful and not harmful.

Once you become aware of the emotion, feel it, watch how it affects you and your potential reaction to it. Ask why you feel so and what you can do about it.

Your emotions can motivate you to act, however holding on to any emotion, good or bad is unhealthy. Let it go and move on. Do not let it affect your balance.

Based on the emotion you feel in a certain situation, you have an idea on how to act. To be clear, here you will act, not react. Prior to this, the previous steps are very essential. This way, your emotions don’t go out of hand. The outcome of the situation is still in your hands depending on how you act in response.
