Working and improving your emotional intelligence can improve your ability to adapt to changes, solve problems and get ahead.
So, do not be afraid to stand up for yourself and say how you are feeling. If you are unhappy with something at work or at home, let others why you feel the way you do and what could be changed.
Keep in mind that it might not always be possible to change anything, but saying how you feel will still be a good for you and your self esteem.

Recent studies have shown that using Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) helps and improves our ability to synthesize information. With Twitter, we have to summarize and synthesize our ideas about a certain topic in a concise and coherent 140 characters.
Write, share things on the Internet.
Create a Twitter account, get started writing about anything: hobbies, food, books, etc. Any time you work to synthesize information, your brain is working!
Have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving holiday week, Keep the Faith!
