How to improve your emotional literacy

It’s easy to be cynical about emotional literacy when you don’t understand it, but it can actually be a key ingredient to improving your ability to process emotions and cope with stressful situations.

Emotional literacy is an incredibly powerful and helpful tool for people with all kinds of emotions, and it can help you understand the emotions that others are feeling, and what you need to do to get them through the day.

The Emotional Literacy Project aims to provide people with a “mental blueprint” of how emotions work in the world, and how to use this information to improve their ability to cope.

You might have been taught to read emotional cues, to see them as a form of “intuition” and to use them as “evidence” to make an emotional decision.

But emotional literacy can actually help you see what others are actually feeling and what they need to know to cope with life.

It can help people who have experienced traumatic events in their life, for example, understand what emotions are and how they might affect them.

“Emotional intelligence is the ability to think about, process and analyse a person’s emotional state, using their current mental state to develop a logical and predictive model of the individual’s emotional and mental state,” says the Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Awareness Project’s director, Lizzy Goulson.

“[It’s] how we understand, predict and control our emotions, how we react to them, and why we do what we do.”

The project’s website describes emotional literacy as “a set of skills that can help individuals with all types of emotions learn to better manage their emotions and understand their reactions to situations”.

It also lists a number of different types of emotional intelligence, which it defines as “emotional insight, understanding and comprehension”.

“For example, it is the skill of understanding what is happening in others’ minds and what is their intentions,” the site says.

While you can learn to read emotions in your head by looking at someone else’s emotions, you can’t actually read them because your brain cannot process them.

Instead, it relies on the emotions themselves, which are represented as patterns of letters, numbers and symbols.

In the Emotion Intelligence and Intuition Project, it also says, “You need to read your own emotions as an analytical tool, not as a tool to manipulate others”.

There’s a real danger in just reading emotional cues because it can lead to a “mind-body” relationship between the observer and the subject.

When you read people’s emotions through the eyes of someone else, it’s like they’re watching you, so it can feel like you’re observing them. 

However, emotional intelligence can also be useful for understanding how others are thinking, feeling and reacting to situations.

“Emotional awareness and emotional intelligence are the most important skills you can have, so be sure to pick them up if you’re feeling vulnerable or unsure of how to handle life,” says Dr Goulsons website.

If you need help reading your emotions, the Emotions Skills and Literacy Program is a free, online service that can get you started.

There, you’ll learn to understand the meaning of your own feelings, how to communicate your thoughts and feelings to others and how emotions are processed.

And while it may sound like a lot of work to pick up and use a new tool, it can be incredibly rewarding if you follow a program that makes sense to you and works for you.
