 1. What is emotional intelligence?

 

I think Emotional intelligence is when you understand and you use your emotions in positive ways to do good actions; like empathize with others, relieve stress, have stronger relationships.

 2. Acts of kindness in the news.

I think the news often doesn’t talk about positive acts and acts of kindness in the world, but there are. For example,this year on Monday 12th October, in Tuscany, approximately six thousand volunteers participated in the Legambiente volunteer campaign: “Puliamo il mondo”. They cleaned the streets of their communes, obviously respecting social distance, for COVID.

 3. Famous people who are known for their kindness.

 For example, I think about the Dalai Lama. He is a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He's known for    being an advocate of no-violence and peaceful coexistence between people. The Dalai Lama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
