Emotional Intelligence 2.0

Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves are showing you the four key elements of emotional intelligence. Learning these skills can make you stand out in a world where EQ seems to be more and more important than IQ.

Master Your Emotions: A Practical Guide to Overcome Negativity and Better Manage Your Feelings (Personal Workbook) (Mastery Series Workbooks)

If you grew up in a place where the focus was always on the negative, then there is a big chance that’s your look at life as well. This book, however, teaches you how to change your perspective. It will automatically have a big and positive impact on the way you feel.

Dear Me: Letters to Myself, For All of My Emotions

It is not always easy to recognize and express your feelings, so why not start at an early age with practicing how to do this? This book helps 4 to 8 year olds to discover emotions and write about them. Breathing is also a part of the contents.

Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: How to Heal from Distant, Rejecting, or Self-Involved Parents

If you are looking for a way to move on in life, after having dealt with a childhood that didn’t meet your needs (selfish, unavailable, or immature parents), then we think you should definitely read this book by Lindsay C. Gibson. Understanding will make place for recovery and healing, and that’s just what you need.

The Invisible String 

Love is what connects, and with this beautiful picture book that is the message it shares with everyone who might need it. It works for both children and adults who need to cope with the understanding that some things cannot be seen, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

The Color Monster: A Story About Emotions

We like this book because it teaches young children (age 4 to 8) that you can feel many things at the same time. This can be overwhelming, and labeling (with a color and meaning) them, can make feeling them less complicated and scary.

Manage My Emotions: What I Wish I’d Learned in School about Anger, Fear and Love (Manage My Emotion Series)

Want to grow emotionally or spiritually as a human being? Then our advice would be to start reading this book by Kenneth Martz. If you learn to understand where certain emotions come from, you will be able to change it and act differently. This is the perfect self-help book.
