monthly life skills report: how emotions are made

The latest in neuroscience suggests that we are actually more in control of our emotions than we might think. As emotional intelligence (EQ) is twice as strong a predictor of later success than IQ we wondered, can we help our kids be the architects of their own emotional experience? 

Some days it feels as if we got out of the wrong side of bed, or that we are stuck in a way of thinking and feeling that is negative or unhelpful, which begs the question: Are we human beings driven by our emotions, or is it the other way round?

The latest research in neuroscience suggests that we are much more in control of our emotions than we might think! It transpires that we are the architects of our own emotional experience...if we learn how.

How Emotions are Made by Dr Lisa Feldman Barrett PhD is the very  fascinating subject of this Monthly Life Skill Report.
