Age-Proofing Your Brain, Emotional Quotient, 3

How can high EQ skills help age-proof your brain? They can help you reduce or avoid conflict. Low EQ skills increase conflict and conflict is expensive, especially to the aging process. It tends to trigger the stress response of fight-or-flight and increases your risk for illness due to suppression of immune system functions. And that is just the tip of the iceberg as the saying goes. High levels of EQ may help you:

  • Reduce and even mitigate the effects of undesirable stressors
  • Minimize conflict and enhance your relationships
  • Improve your life personally and professionally
  • Realize a sense of personal empowerment
  • Role-model a more effective way to live
More tomorrow.
