10 Hacks For Getting Back In a Relationship All Over Again.

There are many circumstances in life that may lead a couple to want a fresh start. For example, it might no longer be working for one or both of you, or you feel as though it is on a downhill slope. Despite this, the two of you are still eager to pursue the relationship and see where it can take you.

Fortunately, whether you are trying to overcome a misstep or even want to rekindle the honeymoon stage, there are plenty of healthy ways to learn how to start over in a relationship.

1. Take a Break

One of the first things that most couples will do when considering whether to start overtakes a break. This is not only okay but also a good idea. Taking a break will allow each of you time to think about what it is you want and need.

During this time, it is important that you are completely separated. This way there will be no confusion from lingering emotions. Agree on a specific amount of time apart before setting a date to meet up. Then it will be much easier to discuss how you can move forward. 

2. Identify Why You Value the Relationship

First things first: you have to rethink why you each value the relationship. This step is key, as it will be a clear indicator of whether it is worthwhile to start over. Some relationships aren’t meant to be. By clueing into why you want the relationship to work out, it will help motivate you throughout the steps to come.

3. Get Some Support

Getting help can be hard. People and society in general often still view therapy and counseling as being bad. You may even feel hesitant or embarrassed to seek out support, but it is a must.

A therapist or counselor will guide you through tough conversations in a healthy environment. By practicing and learning healthy communication, your relationship will fare better than before.

4. Find a Way to Communicate

Speaking of communication, it can be near impossible for some people. What works for an individual will not necessarily work for another. Both of you will need to find a middle ground on how you can communicate. As far as you both are aware of this and willing to keep trying, any method you prefer should work. Even if you find your partner’s preferred method funny or difficult, you should be respectful of their attempts and be open to trying them.

5. Forgive & Start Anew

In some cases, your reasoning for a fresh start may have to do with a serious misstep on your or your partner’s past. Say one of you said or did something that the other has deemed unforgivable. If there is any chance of continuing the relationship, you will first have to forgive. This applies to both of you.

The person who feels betrayed will have to overcome and move past this thing without harboring any resentment. Otherwise, the leftover resentment will eventually come to the surface. Meanwhile, the person who misstepped will have to forgive themself.

It is not only to prevent themselves from doing the same thing again but also to not make the new relationship all about “making up” for their past. If either of you is unable to forgive, then there is little chance of starting over.

6. Learn How to Compromise

In any relationship, it is important that you both are able to compromise. Learning to compromise is key for two main reasons. The first is that it tells your partner that you value them and are willing to meet them in the middle for the sake of their happiness.

The second is that it is a useful tactic for preventing unnecessary arguments. The key thing about compromising is that both people must do it. If only one person in the relationship is making compromises, they will resent their partner.

Both people need to feel that they are receiving as much as they are giving.

7. Pick Your Battles

When starting a relationship over, it can be difficult to let go of past habits. In particular, the things or triggers that sparked arguments can be hard to forget. These triggers can be as simple as leaving a toilet seat up or putting clothes in the wrong hamper.

When starting anew, you will have to learn the art of picking your battles. For the most part, this has to do with your own self-control. Think by yourself, “Is an only bed seat really worth fighting over it or putting a damper on an entire day?”

In most cases, probably the answer is “no”. Practice your ability to choose happiness in the face of what annoys you the most.

With that said, you can still bring up these triggers to your partner — just use positive communication.

Speak to them candidly but calmly about the things they do that bother you and why. Let them know that you would like them to try to change these habits and offer a solution for how they can do it.

By taking an active part in providing a solution, you will likely receive a better response in your desire for them to change. Also, the conversation will be more productive overall.

8. Practice Meaningful Interaction

When we talk about meaningful interaction, this includes actions that are both physical and emotional. The most obvious is probably physical affection. This can include intimacy, cuddling, holding hands, or the simplest of touches.

In regards to emotion, this applies to both your willingness to share and your ability to listen. You should be open to sharing your own emotions and able to actively listen when your partner is sharing.

9. Speak & Think Positively About Your Partner

Sometimes the most difficult part of starting over in a relationship is adjusting how you have been speaking and thinking about your partner.

If a relationship has soured, your actions or thoughts towards them might be negative. It is crucial that when starting over you strive for positivity in every aspect. This means stop the trash talk to family and friends as well as negative internal thoughts.

With that said, it is important that you have the people surrounding you do the same. They can add to a toxic relationship by swaying or perpetuating old emotions.

This may mean that you need to have a candid conversation about how their opinions impact your own. If they are a true friend, they should be willing to adjust how they talk about your partner.
Create Shared Goals

10. Creating Shared Goals

One of the most effective methods for building a positive relationship is creating shared goals. When starting over, this is especially helpful, as you can toss out the old and look to freshen things up.

These goals can be either short and long term, and we recommend coming up with a few of each. For example, a short term goal may be improving your listening skills, whereas a long term goal may be moving in together.

Conclusion

People might say otherwise, Coming back in a relationship is possible.  If you and your partner are willing to put in the work and love one another, it can work out. Let us know which of these tips you found most helpful!

The Fake Apology: Real Deal, Manipulation, or Dodge.

In a relationship sometimes we get confused, was that a fake or real apology from him?.

It is one of the things in your relationship you need to know. Sometimes you get an apology from them to just shut you up. I always feel so insulted whenever my husband gives me these fake apologies.

If your men comply with Narcissistic personality disorder. They will imply that you stupid enough to believe these apologies. “I’m sorry” is always fetching a word before it “but.”

They will go to any extent whatever it makes to trap you in their web of lies. Once they feel they have you hooked, they know you will believe anything they tell you. They will be doing their manipulated word games and use backhanded fake apologies.

So how do you know what a true apology is versus a fake one? A real apology will consist of three parts:

I’m sorry, I was wrong, and then how can I make it better. A Narc won’t do that. Why? Because that will show vulnerability, and a Narc personality man can not do that.

A real apology will see you at the core, as in “You are hurting because…” A Narc apology will have themselves at the core, as in “I am hurting because of you….”

So what is the reason for the Narc’s fake apology? The Narcissists know you find out essential information that will expose them, and they will do anything whatever it takes to drag the attention away from themselves. They will twist it around and find a way to blame you as well!

And sadly, some Narcs do not even use the “I’m sorry, but” apologies. They’ll go straight for verbal assault on you.

So statements what will a Narc say? Below are several examples of fake apologies.

1. “I’m sorry, but you also overreacted to everything as well.”
2. “I’m sorry, but everyone was thinking this funny. You don’t have any sense of humor.”
3. “I’m sorry. Now you Happy?”
4. “I’m sorry about that argument. But it was you who started it.”
5. “I’m sorry for abusing you. But you also abused me.”
6. (Loud) “Alright fine. I’m sorry.” (It is said in an angry and sarcastic tone.)
7. “I have already apologized to you. What else do you want more?”
8. “I’m sorry that you do not know but what I do for you, is more than enough for you.”
9. “I’m sorry, but the whole day I am working very hard and just I come home to take rest. Is that more to ask?”
10. “I’m sorry, but I thought to help you. Excuse me for that .”

All these 10 sentences mentioned above will almost always be followed up with a “Can you forgive me” statement. This puts the ball back in the victim’s court. If she says yes, then it’s basically giving the Narc a green light to continue his behavior and he knows he can get away with whatever he wants. If she says no, she’s the bad guy. The Narc will turn around and say, “Well what more do you want from me? I apologized!!”

Words mean nothing if actions remain the same. When we receive these fake apologies, we are left feeling empty and not valued.

What kinds of fake apologies have you heard? Comment below. I appreciate you sharing your stories.

Problematic Social Media Addiction!

We all try our level best not to get distracted by social media sites but every time we fail in doing so. Am I right guys? I know. I was one of them too. You see these social media sites are compiled in such a manner that it creates a repetitive effect on our brain which makes us addicted to scrolling those websites again and again. I wouldn’t mind saying that they have become more addictive than any form of drugs.


Most of us check or interact on social media constantly throughout the day. And frankly speaking, we often are clueless that what are we exactly going to do after being active?

If you also found yourself bingeing these excessively, you are one of the social media addictive. And your addiction is at the peak. There is a well-grounded reason behind the same. Most of the Social media companies and social content creators, work very hard each day to make their content highly arousing and engrossing that we often fail to resist.

Social Media usage:

Another reason is, Most of the people see friendships as quantity instead of quality. Every social media platform puts the numbers tally of friends or followers on the front and center, like a bold-faced, That is regarded as a social worth. Social worth is nothing but the number of friends or followers you carry the more your worth will be.

You might have thousands of twitter followers, Instagram followers, or Facebook friends. A mere 50 loved signs on the photo that you posted to Instagram two hours ago. This can give you an ecstatic feeling.

I also do have a friend who is much more social media addictive. Who literally waits for the rise in the number of his Instagram likes and comments. He deletes the post which fails to get more likes or comments as if there is nothing more important in this world than those mere 50–60 likes on the highly filtered and beautified photo. anyway

Understand that you have been hostage:


An embarrassingly highly addictive social-media usage is not entirely your fault. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter, these sites have been designed to make you repeatedly use them and they kill your resistance power from them.


When you remember this in your mind that technology is always designed to make you addicted, You will be motivated about these things. Always set the time limit so that we can balance ourselves between social and real life.

The notification numbers:


One strategy every social network sites use that is notification numbers. Always showing notification about any stir like who has followed or mentioned you or liked your post.

Notification numbers appear on the top of the sites or apps to drag you in, then on the top menu or the bottom menu or both places to draw you in further.

They use a psychological trick against you that clickbait headlines do. — There might be information you want to know, But you don’t get enough information to satisfy.

How to get rid of the habit?


Social media addiction can damage careers, relationships, health, and even degrade life.
Most of the people, Gets manipulated by social media sites to waste enough time in a way that benefits them, not to the people.

The best solutions I am aware, is to make a habit of reading books and try to make some distance from your devices too and spend that quality time with your family or friends. Keep working on your self to be more productive. And visit social media sites once a day. Schedule it. And maintain track of how much time you spend every day now.

Takeaway:

Follow these habits. If you succeed, You are on your way to kicking the addiction without going to any social media rehab center.

And if you find difficulty in resisting yourself from social media usage. It sounds like you are highly addicted.

Know Your Arch-Enemy as a Woman!

Besides depression, loneliness, unsuccess, relationship issues, or diseases. Being a woman we get some additional arch-enemy. When a woman born she has three strikes against her.

1. You are a girl


Being a lady still is a curse in so many countries. Especially in undeveloped countries. In India, the sex ratio tells the truth in itself. also, gender inequality exists everywhere. Even in the workplace too. If you are a female. There are more chances for sexual harassment. Otherwise, you face pressure in whatever we do that could even lead us to leave the job. This is seen in both private and public sector jobs. Today Women have reached the sky. But still, the orthodox mindset of our society doesn’t consider women in competition with the men. All the privileges are still men oriented. I mean both should be treated equally.

2. You are young.


Women are always told to stay safe and stay careful. Also, we are not allowed to step out of the home in the night, “Don’t wear jeans and a top” This is something women are always made to hear. the conservative theory exists today too. Crime figures of women can shiver anyone. I don’t want to drag any data here.


If a girl is an adult( crossed 18+ age) becomes her parents’ biggest problem. Crimes such as Dowry rape and molestation are common.

3. You are a dark complexion.


The blackness of a girl in India is also considered a curse. This is prejudice or discrimination in which people treat different skin shaded people differently.


Everyone chooses a fair girl for their son’s wedding, even if their son is dark complexed.

We people have conservative thinking that people who are fair complexion are more beautiful, or should be given more preference.

A dark-colored girl is often teased and is always asked to use a skin whitening cream. But less that they know that these creams have a lesser or negligible effect on skin tone.

 People are born great individuals who are taught hatred.

Conclusion


People today are understanding that a girl is equally capable of doing what a boy can do.


I would say, women associated with feminism should move forward to make them skilled and get themselves ready to compete in the workplace instead of gender discrimination.


And women should not be portrayed as Victims. We are more strong than we think. Women are graceful in every form and in every color. Always remember that we are unique and beautiful.

There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.- Madeleine Albright

7 Tips to Create a Positive Mindset Permanently.

I believe that having a positive mindset is one of the biggest values in life. Living in Positivity, kindness, compassion, happiness is what we are here for.

It is a thing that has to be mastered as we live in a world full of cruelty and negativity. Bad things happen all the time, but we have to have that faith and trust in life so we can live in peace and abundance.

I can tell you that it is easy. You only have to decide to change your mindset in a more positive way and you are already halfway there.

Positivity and fulfillment can be found by creating a positive mindset, which will upgrade your life and make being happy and at peace way easier.

Learn how to change your life forever by these 7 positive mindset hacks I have compiled to help you live your best life.

Positive Mindset Tips to Change Your Life for The Better

1. Live More, Don’t Just Exist

A long time ago I was in a place in life where I only existed. I didn’t do what I love, I was a huge example of a person who follows what society thinks is right. It is such a prison, I can say.

We all have to live more to experience this life. Think less (of course, be responsible), do what your gut is telling you. It is our biggest superpower in life — what we have to do to use this superpower for us not against us — is to listen. Listen to yourself, to your body. Be in the now, and enjoy the now.

There is no need to live in the past or future, all we have is the present moment. Live it!

2. Speak Positive Language to Yourself


Instead of :

  • I am not worthy
  • Life sucks
  • Everything is so hard
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees
  • What’s the point in life?

be more like :

  • Life is so easy
  • I am loved, brave, and I can do everything in life
  • Money comes to me quickly and easily
  • It is so beautiful to be alive
  • I have a purpose

Do you see it? I personally love to read the second list. The first one is way too tough and pointless. Speaking positively to yourself is like appreciating yourself in this life and attracting the best.

Remember — you get what you give. You get what you say. So say only the things you want, things you desire. Love yourself enough to be kind and to deserve the best.

3. Look for The Good in Every Situation

Everything happens for a reason. I wasn’t a believer until I started my self-development journey. Every situation in life comes as a lesson. It can be good or bad, but they teach you something.

So I encourage you to see situations as good lessons for your self-development. It takes time and practice, because, yes, situations can be so hard, but they are there for you to grow.

Take out the best from every circumstance you are in, see the positive and as great and positive lessons for your life journey.

4. You Recieve What You Offer

You get what you give. As simple as that. It is the law of this life, you will only fool yourself if you try to outflank this law. If you give more positivity, you get more positive things in life, if you give more cruelty and madness, you get the same kind of circumstances and situations in life. It is such a boomerang effect.

I cannot admire enough of our possibilities and power. We just have to use them carefully. You attract what you give out. If you want love in your life, give more love to yourself and others.

or want to be surrounded by kindness, be kinder. If want to be happier, think happier thoughts. Your state of mind creates your reality. So if you are in a happier state of mind, your reality would reflect that.

5. Appreciate Always What You Have

Look around you.

Are your basic survival needs met?

Do you have enough food, clothes, and a safe place to sleep?

Are you having air to breathe?

Have you a functioning body?

Now Can you see the sufficiency all around you?

There are so many people in life that doesn’t have basic survival needs, they have body disabilities, but they may have a positive mindset. Your biggest gift is that you can master a positive mindset too.

You have everything you need to be happy and fulfilled in life. Instead of focusing on how much more of it you need, shift your focus to appreciate the little bit of it that you have.

Give all your love, attention, and appreciation for every single thing and experience in life. This mindset alone will cause a shift in your life to making you feel more abundant, and then — start having more abundance.

6. To Compare Yourself to Others, Is Just a Waste of Time.

What’s the point of constantly making yourself feel bad about who you are and what you do? It is such a self-harm activity in our generation.

You are stronger and better when you stop comparing yourself and start enjoying your self-being. A unique personality with talents and skills that no one else has.

As an individual, you see life in a different and beautiful perspective. Why fit in when you were born to brighten up?

Appreciate yourself. You came here on Earth to be different and not to copy others. Your taste of life may inspire others, but if you want to shine and sprinkle your own existence over others, then just be yourself in your own unique way.

Be a lot more you, and a less more them.

7. Your Thought Shape Your Reality

These are the keywords I now stand for. Conscious awareness + intention + inspired action — DESIRES FULFILLED. Manifesting what you want is simple math.

Every single thing starts in your mind, no matter the conscious or subconscious. Your responsibility is to set an intention of what you want (and not what you do not want), open your mind by meditating and unlearning, and then act on what your gut is telling you.

Your reality reflects your inner home. So make sure your inner and outer homes are great places to be.

By practicing these simple positive mindset hacks, I have come to the place in life where I feel so happy, grateful and everything in life happens for me, not to me. I manifest easily, I am kind to others, life is so easy.

Conclusion

These mindset changes will lead you to your dream life. The key is to practice, practice, practice. Okay, you fail. So what? Keep continuing and do not quit. Changing bad habits and mindsets take time and commitment. But you have to sacrifice that bad life spiral to live differently, more positive, more fulfilled.

How To Get Rid of Cramps: 12 Proven ways!

How to get rid of cramps is never that easy as it is considered. Many women have cramps before and during their periods. Cramps are normal and are treatable.

Why cramps occurs?

Periods cramps can be really painful & uncomfortable. Period cramps happen for a reason. During the period, the uterus gets contracted that means it squeezes or cramps up. This makes the lining come off the walls of the uterus and leave the body. When uterus squeezes, it helps the period blood flow out.

Most women get cramps during their periods at some point in their lives. It usually feels like throbbing pains in your lower belly. These cramps can start a couple of days before your period and sometimes remain throughout the periods. Generally, Cramps are awful during the first few days of periods when the period flow is the excess.

You can get cramps as soon as you get your first period. Your periods can be less or more painful throughout life. For many women, cramps happen less painful as they grow older.

Menstrual cramps can be painful, nasty, or irritating, but cramps are common.

Period cramps are very common, but there are times when they can interfere with your day-to-day life. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to ease the pain and discomfort caused by these pesky cramps.

7 Signs of Being In A Relationship With A Narcissist.

To live in a relationship with a narcissist can have extensive effects on your mental health. Narcissists have the demerits including an impressive sense of self, lack of empathy, superficial charm, and a lack of remorse, it’s no surprise that these relationships can be incredibly toxic.

To the Mental Health Awareness, I have revisited one of our most well-read articles Emotional Abuse in a relationship?

If you like that your partner is never wrong and the center of attraction, and even can not take care of criticism. Well, you will not have any problem in a relationship with a narcissist.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Before I wrote an article about emotional abuse in a relationship. Often I see couples whose relationship has been destroyed because of one partner showing the sign of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). NPD is a mental condition, in which a person overvalue a sense of self-importance and ignores any empathy for others.

NPD is a highly extensive form of narcissism and affects approx 10% of the population worldwide Men are more affected by this in comparison to women.

People who suffer from this face a lot of problems, particularly in emotional relationships.

Narcissists are a nightmare to live in a relationship with, they can destroy your confidence, your dignity and make you feel completely depressed, and lose all sense of self and reality. So how to know if you’re in a relationship with a narcissist or not?

Here are the 7 Signs of Being In A Relationship With A Narcissist.

They are controlling


The narcissist likes to control everything. People often get confused about the control with attention, but it frequently gets to the point where the other partner in the relationship starts to feel dominated and in minimal control of their life. Do you always constantly find yourself asking for permission to go somewhere? Does your partner monitor every step of yours where you are? to whom with you? Check your messages?

It’s all about them


Yes, it is all about them. They are fully self-obsessed with themselves that nothing else gets a look in. And if something is not all about them, they will try to make it so. A narcissist will leave the conversation if it is not about them – and will turn it so it is.

They lack empathy


If their demands are being met, quite frankly a narcissist simply will not care. They have a full lack of empathy for others even their partner, friends, and family. And never show any ability to identify with their feelings, even don’t think twice about taking advantage of others to get what they need without any feelings of guilt.

They try to manipulate everyone including you.


Narcissists are the master in manipulation, narcissists are very dodgy at twisting every situation and working them, so they get what they want. One of their main techniques is gaslighting, by that, they convince you always about your views that they are wrong. They utilize this technique to make you feel worthless, constantly questioning your instincts, feeling confused and anxious, and that you do everything wrong.

They have an inflated sense of entitlement


Narcissists think they are much more superior to the people around them. and they are truly special and unique. Nobody is as good looking or engaging as they are. They look forward to always get what they need because they are just so much better than anyone else.

Nothing is ever their fault


They do not want to take any responsibility because they believe that they are always right. They always tend to tell lye, complex excuses, cheating, and anything to deflect from how they behave.
Because of there, great manipulation skills other partner has to apologize for an argument they did not cause.

They need constant praise and attention


They expect from you to put them first always, praise them for their good looks, frequently acknowledge their wonderful achievements and talents, whatever they do.

A narcissist likes to be the center of attraction and attention, As a partner, you must be doting on them. Any signs of disagreement or disapproval about whatever they say will not be accepted well.

What can you do?


In a relationship or married with a narcissist is damn difficult. Leaving one or divorce can be even harder, however with the right support you can do it.

It takes a big deal to self-respect, self-confidence, and self acknowledge to end any relationship or marriage.

Talking to a legal practitioner to understand your legal rights is a great starting point. I also advise that if you are in a relationship with narcissist talk to your friends and family and seek out counseling.

You must get professional legal advice to ensure that the process will work for you and your family.

However, often we see people who look amazing and have the energy of youngsters. While getting older is inescapable, aging mentally can be dealt with in a rewarding way.

We’ve seen several celebrities who look their best selves even though they have aged. From Shahrukh Khan to Tom Cruise, we’ve witnessed so many personalities who’ve given us the motivation and hope to look and feel young as we get older. Apart from diet and exercise, these people follow a vigorous lifestyle daily to maintain a healthy self and today we are here to show you that you can do it too. Here are some best tips that will help you age well and combat the undesirable effects of growing old.

The most Important habits of people who do not age

A Balanced Diet and Exercise.

You have heard this so many times. Rightly so, because diet and exercise are integral to health. What you eat as food is what nourishes your body. Hence, it is essential to follow a balanced diet which includes carbs, proteins, fats, fibers, water, vitamins, and minerals. Exercise is also important to maintain a healthy body and mind. Incorporating an exercise routine that suits your body, be it cardio, yoga or weights is important for physical and mental health. It is recommended that a person should exercise at least thrice a week for a hale and stress-free life. Apart from this, it also helps you to achieve that great body that you’ve been dreaming about.

Caring of Your Skin

Living in a time where pollution and stress are being part of everyone’s life. It is recommended to take extra care of your skin. A daily skincare routine is essential to keep your skin, soft, and glowing. An ideal skincare regime includes cleansing, applying toner, and moisturizing. People also use face packs once or twice a week to rejuvenate their skin. However, the most basic aspect of skincare is daily showers to maintain clean and healthy skin and keeping levels of stress in check.

Sleep

You have also heard that eight to nine hours of sleep is needed for your body to restore its state of function. Many a time, we take this for granted and do not get the amount of sleep necessary for our body. Lack of sleep leads to a higher risk of obesity and diabetes. It also leads to increased stress levels and adversely affects brain function. The term “beauty sleep” was named for a reason. Science says that during sleep, our body produces a growth hormone that restores the collagen and elastin in the skin. These are essential elements of young and healthy skin.

Meditation

Meditation

This powerful practice has numerous health benefits, one of which is that it slows down aging. Meditation protects the brain from aging and brings about significant change in regions associated with stress, memory, and empathy. A study showed that people who practiced regular meditation had a younger prefrontal cortex than others their age by close to 25 years.

Social Relationships

Social Relationship

You could be an introvert who likes to keep to yourself or a shy person who does not like crowds, but there is no denying that relationships are important. As humans, we are all social beings and it is crucial for our well being that we have a support system in place. A study proved that there is a direct relationship between your mental and physical wellbeing and your social relationships. Human beings are not meant for isolation. It harms mental health and reduces life expectancy. Therefore, building a relationship around your family and friends is important to stay young and hearty.

Be a Positive Person

This is one of the hardest things to follow by far. When there is so much negativity around us, it becomes easy to draw from that energy and bask in it. However, a study showed that people who maintained a positive outlook on life were happier, healthier, and lived longer. They had the mental capacity to calmly accept what the future has in store for them rather than getting stressed about it. This mental state allowed them to be independent, enjoy social ties, maintain physical health, and work full time. Like people say, everything is about perspective and if we can train ourselves to look at shortcomings from a positive perspective of learning, we can seek growth and renewal in every opportunity.

Exposure of Sun

Knowing your EQ may be more important than your IQ. Emotionally intelligent people are more confident, focused, and more likely to succeed source. They also understand others really well!

A Emotional person

I’m sure you’ve heard of Emotional Intelligence, but if not – it involves understanding and managing your emotions well, intelligently! Through recognizing your emotions, you can better control your life and understand those around you! It’s becoming more popular as we discover the benefits and importance of EI and not just the old standard IQ! How we handle certain situations and circumstances, how we deal with our feelings and express our emotions has a major impact on our relationships, jobs, and lives. Our feelings are literally everything we are! For some people, it seems to come naturally. Maybe they grew up with emotionally intelligent parents and were taught from a young age the tools to manage how they think and feel. Or maybe it’s partially in your genes. Either way, there are many tools you can use to help manage your emotions, better!

What Emotional Intelligence is?


So, what emotional intelligence is? I consider it like a missing piece of your puzzle. It’s like that cartoon of the girl saying, Oh, I knew I forgot something. A career! we become aware that everyone forgot to tell us how to be smart about our emotions. At least in words, we could understand!

But are you or are you not smart about your emotions? I didn’t really understand how to assess how I deal with my emotions, so I decided to do some research!

As kids, we often throw outburst and are taught how to better handle our emotions. This sets up us for emotional intelligence. But each of us handles our own emotions, our own way, and how we do this has a great impact on our lives. Most of the children were not taught how to handle their emotions and still throw outburst as adults when they’re upset or overwhelmed! People who can’t control their emotions or have a hard time expressing their feelings don’t likely have a higher EQ. But, there are ways to strengthen your emotional intelligence.

How To Assess Your Emotional Strength?


One standard for judging your emotional intelligence skills would certainly be how well things are going for you at work and at home because our EQ is more important to our happiness, health, and success than IQ.

If things aren’t going well, you can probably improve your life drastically by improving your emotional intelligence!

No matter which kind of situation you’re in, or in which kind of circumstance, improving your Emotional Intelligence skills will help. You’ll become more aware of what’s going on around you the things you couldn’t quite grasp before. You’ll also become a lot more knowledgeable about what’s going on with other people, and isn’t that always the most difficult thing to figure out?

Recognizing Others’ Emotions


Approx 90 % of any person’s emotional expression takes place without speaking! Reading a person’s nonverbal behavior can help you understand a person’s motives much more accurately than just listening to what their mouths are saying. The body talks too, and often louder than words!

Read the facial expression on a person, how he sits, how he walks, his tone of voice, the moments of silence, the look in his eyes! These are all clues as to how someone is feeling emotionally.

Why Is This Important?

They might be telling you, How they Think, but How they feel is what’s going to influence their next move. Whether they’re going to buy a product, hire you for a job, or ask you to marry them. These are all influenced by feelings. Understanding how this works can really help you understand your own feelings so much better!

Be Intelligent About Your Emotions At Work


Improving your emotional intelligence can improve your overall workplace performance! Some of the most successful people around you are probably very emotionally smart! You can be too!

Emotions at work

In most offices, you need to motivate others, which involves good communication skills. Being able to read peoples’ nonverbal communication is key! Motivation comes from feelings, not thinking! If you can connect with what’s important to the person you’re dealing with, or connect everyone to an Idea or Mission then you can motivate them in your direction. A person may say they want to buy your product or that they love your service or ideas, but actually they hate it. Isn’t it better to be able to read their nonverbal communication?!

Emotions At Home


Work is important, but home is where we live. If your relationships aren’t very good, nothing at work will matter. It’ll also be harder to focus and concentrate on your job. Why? Because we don’t just leave part of us at home when we head to work for the day. We are our emotions. They’re a BIG part of us, and they go everywhere we go!

Silent argue in couple

Couples who communicate better, have better marriages. Couples who don’t know how to express their emotions intelligently, end up fighting all the time.

As parents, one of the best lessons you can teach your children is the knowledge of emotional intelligence and good modeling of emotionally intelligent behavior is a great way to start.

10 Ways to Build Emotional Intelligence Skills


Actions To Take To Improve Your Emotional Strength Skills:

1. Think About Your Feelings.

Emotional intelligence starts and ends with self and social awareness. Recognizing how you feel and how others feel will help you understand yourself and those around you so much better. What are your emotional strengths and weaknesses? How am I currently feeling? What’s really going on underneath it all?

You can’t learn emotional intelligence by just reading about it. You need to work on it through your thoughts and actions. It’s a process. It’s difficult to change something you can’t see clearly and we don’t see ourselves as others see us!

Figuring out how to better read others has really helped me understand how I come across and how others see me too! So, I can improve how I am portrayed! Sometimes, because of anxiety, stress, or whatever, I get across as rude or mean! Practicing emotional intelligence has helped me fix that!

2. Think Before You Speak And Act.

Such a simple thing, that every person can benefit from. Ever say something out of anger, that you quickly regretted? Or do something without thinking first and ended up completely embarrassed? Me too! Taking the time to think about what you say or do can save you from doing something you’ll regret. It does take some strength, but just like working your glutes at the gym, it gets easier over time!

3. Give Praise.

We all want to be acknowledged for our efforts. When you recognize other people’s achievements, you’ll instantly feel better yourself. It also builds trust!

4. Be Honest.

Being honest about how you’re feeling instead of bottling it up to help others understand you better. You’ll also feel a lot better! It’s not always easy to be honest, especially if it’ll hurt someone’s feelings. I used to agree to things I didn’t necessarily want to do because I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. But, since I started speaking up and just being honest about how I feel, I’ve become way more confident, and emotionally stronger! I am not saying to be brutally honest! There is a difference, and if you’re emotionally strong you’ll understand it!

5. Let Go Of Grudges.

Forgiving and forgetting is a great way to build your emotional strength! When you hold on to anger toward someone, it’s really only hurting you! Don’t let others control your emotions! By letting go, you’re taking full control of your own emotions!

6. Learn To Say Sorry.

Saying you’re sorry when you’re in the wrong (or sometimes even when you’re not) takes strength. It shows humility, which automatically makes others feel differently about you. If you value a relationship, saying sorry doesn’t mean you’re totally wrong. That means you do care about keeping that relationship strong and moving on!

7. Be Yourself.

This goes hand in hand with being honest. Don’t be afraid to feel what you are feeling and speak it out loud. Pretending to be someone or something else is so exhausting, mentally! Stick by your values and principles and understand that not everyone will agree with it.

8. Accept Criticism.

This is a tough one. No one wants to hear that they’re doing something wrong or that they’re bad at something. It’s always going to be tough to hear, but try and keep your emotions in check and use the criticism to either improve or move on and find something you are great at. You can’t be great at everything!

9. Live In The Moment.

This is so beneficial. I’m usually go-go-go and have a million things on my mind, making it hard to enjoy and live in the moment. I let my thoughts distract me sometimes. Lately, I’ve been trying to make a note to live more at the moment and just enjoy what I’m doing at the time. Writing a to-do list can help you stay organized, and having it all down on paper can help keep it out of your every thought!

10. Learn To Control Yourself.

You can’t always control how you feel, but you can control how to choose to react. An emotionally strong person doesn’t blow up when they’re angry. They think rationally and take a moment to think things over before they react.
