Does your Emotional intelligence need a pep talk?
11 Signs your Emotional Intelligence needs a Pep Talk
-According to Travis Bradberry (2018)
1. Easily stressed
2. Difficulty asserting yourself
3. Limited emotional vocabulary
4. Quick to make assumptions
5. Hole grudges
6. You don’t let go of mistakes
7. Often feel misunderstood
8. Don’t know your emotional triggers
9. You don’t get angry
10. You blame others for how they make you feel
11. Easily offended
This list was interesting to me as I could look back in my life and see where I struggled with the majority or all of these signs. I can also see where I was doing well emotionally, physically and psychologically, and did not struggle with any of these areas. Seeing all these things combined in a list really changed my perspective on how my emotional and psychological well-being can affect my ability to effectively respond with higher levels of emotional intelligence. Does anyone experience these symptoms of low EI? How can you use this list to become more mindful of your EI in challenging situations?

My name is Skye, I specialize in Trauma Informed Life Coaching and Counseling, with a holistic and integrative approach to healthcare services and therapy by focusing on the unity of mind, body, and spirit, through meditation, mindfulness, emotion regulation, Reiki, ThetaHealing, and holistic essential oil remedies.
I hold a BS in Social Psychology with emphasis in Clinical and Abnormal Psychology, a MS in Psychology with emphasis in Life Coaching, and a Post-Master of Science in Counseling with emphasis in Trauma Recovery. In 2017 I became a small business owner of Love and Light Therapy, LLC.
I love seeing the beauty of life in even the smallest of things. The sunshine, rippling waters, fragrant flowers, and cool sea breeze keep me grounded and alive. I love painting and reading, being outdoors and laughter. I choose to continue my educational pursuits so that I may share the knowledge and healing that comes with the merging of academia and experience. I live in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
I dream of one day opening an outdoor camp facility for adults and children struggling with PTSD and CPTSD due to highly traumatic experiences. Encompassing one on one therapy, therapeutic group activities like music, art, caring for support animals, and outdoor therapy which will help clients recenter and ground themselves. There have been many studies that discuss the therapeutic value and personal growth that occurs when distressed individuals can reconnect with themselves through nature. In addition to this, I will also provide skills training through dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapy (DBT and CBT) so that they are able to re-enter their life prepared to overcome the triggers that bring the trauma back to the forefront of the mind and body.
