Basic Emotions

All action begins with emotion. Although the mind can regulate action, it rarely motivates us to take action. Emotion is what propels us forward. Both in ordinary human experience and in mental disorders, emotion plays a critical role. Basically, there are seven kinds of basic emotions: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, disgust, surprise and love.

Emotional Intelligence

According to Psychology Today, “Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify and manage one’s own emotions, as well as the emotions of others.” It is generally said to include a few skills: namely emotional awareness, or the ability to identify and name one’s own emotions; the ability to harness those emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes both regulating one’s own emotions when necessary and helping others to do the same.

Emotional Intelligence is a set of aptitudes that determine how well you handle yourself in life, and how well you are able to understand and get on with others. In an ever-more complex and demanding world, we can do better by being more proactive, engaging with others, and learning how to manage our own energy levels, our relationships, and other people. The skills of Emotional Intelligence show you how to do these things and how to develop the insight and confidence to handle your own and others’ expectations and emotions effectively.

Benefits of Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is important in every element of the workplace’s well-being and welfare, especially when people prefer to work together, whether it’s leadership, solving conflicts, effective and efficient collaboration, or individual performance and motivation.

EI is twice as important as technical skills.Individuals with high levels of Emotional Intelligence are more productive and efficient in the job and in everyday life, according to a research. As a result, Emotional Intelligence may help each individual perform better and, as a result, the organization as a whole.

Components of Spiritual Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EI) is necessary for successful communication, empathizing with people, overcoming obstacles, and defusing conflict. Emotional intelligence has an influence on many parts of your everyday life, including how you act and interact with people.

Emotional intelligence has five components of spiritual EI and they are;

  1. Self- Awareness (Meditation/Liveliness)
  2. Free Choice (Creation)
  3. Integration (Motivating)
  4. Execution (Doing)
  5. Mastery (Wholeness)

Thus, emotions alter the way our brains work, lowering our cognitive capacities, decision-making ability, and interpersonal skills. Understanding and regulating our own and others’ emotions will assist us in achieving success in both our personal and professional life.

Therefore, from this course participants learned new ideas to create a way of life that works for them in terms of emotions. 

To sum up, emotion is the source of creativity. It moves for a reason. Emotion gives value to the things you do. If you truly want to, you can do it. We must use our leisure time learning information and gaining actual knowledge. We feel motivated every time we learn something new because we are developing. Become preoccupied with growing and you will develop emotional intelligence.
