Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize your emotions, understand what they’re telling you, and realize how your emotions affect people around you. It includes your perspectives of others: when you understand how they feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively. People who have a high level of emotional intelligence are usually successful in most endeavors. 

Mr. Timilsina informed attendees that this workshop would be emotionally exhausting. He started the class with a variety of exercises to keep the participants interested in the topic. He explained the concept of emotional intelligence and challenged people to discover their actual selves. He invited participants to put down several attributes that they have when their emotions are pleased. “Teaching the mind without educating the heart is no education at all,” he said, quoting Aristotle. He says that being mindful is vital because it allows you to live your life fully aware.

He guided participants through exercises to help them understand how to take control of their emotions. He also led a breakout activity to test their emotions and provide networking opportunities for the attendees.
