“Emotional Intelligence” has become somewhat of a buzzword in today’s culture. In this episode, Alyssa breaks things down to describe how emotional intelligence is based on five components: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. “In terms of raising emotionally intelligent humans: We’re not talking about changing who kids are, but shifting how adults experience kids’ emotions.”
Topics discussed in this episode include:
- Finding a pause between reaction and response
- Learning to regulate and choose words and actions wisely
- Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation: What is driving us?
- Why are the birth-to-age 5 years so important?
- Why our nervous system is like a battery; it drains throughout the day & needs to be recharged
- And more!
