60 Mindful Minutes

Jun 7, 2022

Our ability to be conscious of and to direct our own thoughts and emotions forms the bedrock of our emotional intelligence and self-awareness. As we raise our awareness of our inner workings, we may discover that our mind is made up of mental habits that cause us to interpret the world around us and act accordingly. In her book, Beyond Emotional Intelligence: A Guide to Accessing Your Full Potential, author Michele Nevarez explores the influence these mental habits have over our lives and the ways we can work with them to give us more agency.
