DR. MEG MEEKER with guests ALYSSA BLASK CAMPBELL

“Emotional Intelligence” has become somewhat of a buzzword in today’s culture. In this episode, Alyssa breaks things down to describe how emotional intelligence is based on five components: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. “In terms of raising emotionally intelligent humans: We’re not talking about changing who kids are, but shifting how adults experience kids’ emotions.”

 

Topics discussed in this episode include:

 

·   Finding a pause between reaction and response

·   Learning to regulate and choose words and actions wisely

·   Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation: What is driving us?

·   Why are the birth-to-age 5 years so important?

·   Why our nervous system is like a battery; it drains throughout the day & needs to be recharged

·   And more!
