Keys to Healthier Mind Development
Emotional intelligence (EI) is defined as the ability to monitor one’s own emotions, as well as those of other people, to discriminate between different emotions, and to label them ap-propriately. While applying EI, we are guiding our thinking and behavior with an educated focus on healthier mind development.
Emotional quotient (EQ) is a testing measurement of our ability to understand and apply our own minds emotionally.
Although a comprehensive ambition, EQ testing is meant to reveal how well we have learned to manage the harmful and helpful effects of emotions for the purpose of facilitating heal-thful thoughts, communication, and behavior.
Researchers now realize that emotional literacy helps to prevent and solve myriad problems that we experience in our personal and professional lives. The more we underst-and about our mind’s emotional component, the more valuable assets we possess as individuals—namely emotional stability, security, overall intelligence, and physical health, as well as our ability to treat other people and other things in healthier, more meaningful ways.
Emotional intelligence is the secret to building healthier minds, getting the best out of life, and developing a behaviorally safer world. With the emotional state of the world today, emotional intelligence is our strongest hope for an optimistic future.
