Trying to read something that's not an academic paper or manual. Sometimes we need time off from studying and from being "the" student, giving ourselves time to enjoy self care days.

emotional intelligence
emotional intelligence is your ability to perceive, understand, manage and use your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse conflict. it involves a set of skills that help you recognise, understand, and influence the emotions of yourself and others.
the key components of emotional intelligence are self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. emotional intelligence is considered a critical factor for success in life because it helps you navigate social complexities, lead and motivate others, and excel in your personal and professional life. some experts suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while others believe it is an innate characteristic.
an example of emotional intelligence in action is the ability to approach situations in a healthy, curious manner rather than an angry frustrated one. instead of reprimanding when someone is not acting according to standard, you can ask the person if everything is okay and listen attentively, understanding that there can be external factors affecting the other's behaviour.
by managing your emotions, and remaining calm and supportive during similar conversations, you can create a safe space for the other person to open up, and solve issues without further drama or difficulties. after you learn the change in their behaviour, you can offer support and adjust your actions to accommodate for the other persons needs.
if everyone practised a little more emotional intelligence, the world would wholly be a better place.
but let me stress this: emotional intelligence does not in any way mean changing yourself so other people can operate better. it is not being nice, it is having empathy and awareness.
let's further explore the different aspects of emotional intelligence:
self-awareness: the ability to recognise your own emotions and how they affect your thoughts and behaviour.
self-regulation: being able to manage your emotions and adapt to challenging circumstances.
motivation: to harness emotions to stay focused on your personal goals.
empathy: the ability to understand the emotions of others and respond appropriately.
social skills: to be able to build and maintain good relationships through effective communication and conflict resolution.
i already touched on misunderstanding emotional intelligence as simply being nice, but there are several common mistakes that can hinder emotional intelligence.
high emotional intelligence can sometimes be used manipulatively, influencing others without considering their best interests. this is not right! while manipulation may yield immediate results, it can have long-term negative consequences. it creates a toxic environment, hinders genuine connection and stifles growth. not to mention that depending on the context, manipulative behaviour can have legal consequences and lead to social ostracism.
emotional intelligence requires openness and vulnerability, and being too guarded can prevent the development of meaningful relationships. being guarded limits self-awareness, which is a key component of emotional intelligence. it does this by not allowing you to fully acknowledge or understand your own emotions.
to end on a more positive note, here is how you can build stronger emotional intelligence:
practice active listening: pay attention to what others are saying without interrupting. listen to understand, not just to respond.
emotional awareness: acknowledge your emotions, especially the uncomfortable ones. accept them as a normal part of life and learn from them.
identify emotions within others: pay attention to body language, tone of voice, and facial expressions to better understand how others are feeling.
understand your stressors: know what triggers your stress and build strategies to manage it. this can help you to remain calm and clear-headed in challenging situations.
healthily channel your emotions: find constructive outlets for your emotions, such as exercise, meditation, or creative activities. engaging in creative tasks allows for contemplation, giving you the space to reassess problems in your life and make plans.
develop empathy: try to see things from others' perspectives. empathy builds connection and trust.
improve social skills: work on communication, conflict resolution and cooperation. these skills are vital for building strong relationships.
self-regulation: learn to control impulsive feelings and behaviours. pause and think before acting. self-regulation leads to better decision-making and letting you avoid impulsive reactions that you might regret later. it enables you to handle pressures and challenges effectively.
self-reflection: regularly reflect on your behaviour and emotions. ask yourself why you do the things you do and how you can improve.
seek feedback. be open to constructive criticism and use it as a means to grow. ask trusted friends or colleagues for their honest opinions about your behaviour.
remember that emotional intelligence is not fixed; it can be developed and enhanced over time with practice and commitment. by focusing on these areas of improvement, you can increase your emotional intelligence, improving your interactions and relationships in all areas of life.

"Consistency is more important than perfection"
I realized that one of the big reasons why I procrastinate is because of my perfectionism.
One day, I was writing notes for a chapter which was just for my reference and the ink in my pen was over. It was a black ball point pen. I had multiple other black gel pens and ink pens but I needed the black ball point pen cause my notes had to be perfect and had to have the same ink. I closed my book and started scrolling through tumblr cause I needed to go to the shop to buy it and I was too lazy to do it. Before this, I was working on this everyday but it just stopped that day cause I was aiming for perfectionism.
Another example where I was procrastinating was also because of perfectionism. For me, starting at 4:19 pm or 5:8 am gives me anxiety was because it wasn't a 'good timing'. For me, the good timing was 4:30 pm or 5:00 am. If I cross the 5:00 am mark, I go for 5:15 am. I used to get distracted and when I get ready to study, it showing 4:31 pm and I'll be like, let's wait for 14 mins and I'll be scrolling through Youtube and I'll miss the 4:45 pm mark as well. I still get anxiety when I start at 4:19 or something like that.
The reasons why I talked about these was because perfectionism is the bane of productivity. In youtube, we see these 'Study with me' vlogs where they make so good aesthetic notes with colorful headings, and neat drawings. Seeing them, we get the urge to make them aesthetic as well but at the end, we see that it took us 4 hours to complete the notes on one page. That page may be pleasing to look at but our productivity? In shambles.
Sometimes, for some people, perfectionism is something they can't avoid. I am not talking for everyone but I get anxiety when something isn't perfect. There is a small mistake in the notes? Tear it and write it again. Handwriting is not good? Rewrite.
This has affected my consistency and productivity a lot.
I used to be consistent but perfectionism has shredded that into pieces.
I ain't saying this will work for everyone but these are the tips I would give to past me:
You should start working on yourself. Do not check the time. If you use any device, try not to see it. You won't be distracted on how time is passing or will not get anxiety on how it ain't the correct time to start working.
Try to gently stop being perfect everywhere. If there is a small mistake in the notes, try and ignore it. Do not go for big leaps. If you don't like the aesthetic, rewrite it again. It's fine. But if you make small mistakes try to ignore it. Start small and then go onto big stuff. If you get impatient, you may cause anxiety and that will give a huge stop to your work productivity.
Speaking of small steps, if your consistency is gone, take small steps again. Another big reason for procrastination is because you are distracted or can't sit properly in one place. On the first day, study for 10 mins, take a break and move around, study for another 10 mins and so on. As the days progresses, you can increase the study time.
That is all for today. Everyone can do this.
You are loved. Take care <3 Cheering for y'all
