Emotional intelligence (EI) is known as the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions. How well we know ourselves and the way we communicate our emotions (or not) to impact on other’s people feelings will determine how emotionally intelligent we are. It’s broken down into four competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. As simple and humanly as it sounds, many of us struggle to acknowledge and develop our emotional intelligence. But improving it can have a pretty big impact on one’s life, and the way we interact with others.
Self-awareness specifically is the ability to recognize one’s emotions, internal states, preferences, resources, and intuition. We could say that knowing ourselves can make a difference on how we build relationships, communicate with others, and love. The next step would be communicating these emotions to other’s, therefore improving your social awareness and relationship management.
Lifetime Wishes provides you with a platform to love and connect with the most important people in your life. You can communicate how much you care, send encouraging messages of support during hard times, and schedule them into the future to guarantee loved ones will get your emotional support even after you’re gone. You can also help them to improve their own emotional intelligence. Here are 3 examples on how to use Lifetime Wishes to help others with their person self-awareness:
- Recurring Wishes: You can schedule up wishes that are sent every week, day, month, or year, containing important information that acts as a reminder to keep up with self-awareness routines. As a parent or grandparent, this will give you some peace of mind that you’re making a positive impact on your child or grandchild. One example could be decision making: if you need to make a decision today, ask yourself why three times. Being aware of why/how one makes decisions will instill confidence in the decision maker.
- Characteristics: Scheduled on a weekly basis, send a wish to someone you love describing their characteristics and why you notice them. It will help them to get to know themselves better, while giving you a sense of happiness that you’re helping. When we go through tough times, it’s natural for us to shut ourselves off from the ones that matter the most. Remember to reach out to those feeling blue, and always encourage communication from the other end.
- Future Wishes: Sometimes, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Record yourself detailing words of encouraged and where you see the receiver one-year from now. Schedule it so your loved one can hear your words in the future. These types of wishes will help them develop a self-awareness that is beneficial and supportive of who they are and where they want to be.
