Emotional Literacy

Eva San

Seasoned Art Therapist

The world has become increasingly interconnected, yet our individual lives seem to be ever more isolated. People glued to their smartphones, tablets or laptops at almost all hours of the day, ignoring the people around them. Each of us walking about in our technological bubble.

Does this stunt our capacity as individuals and as a society to connect with each other on an emotional level?

How can we constructively express our emotions and improve our emotional literacy?

Beautiful Quotes

  • Be aware on how you want to use your time and technology–do you want to use it to connect or disconnect? It’s your choice on how you want to use it.
  • Emotion is a good tool for us to learn about our needs. It is a tool that makes us think about our wants and desires.
