November 21, 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.: Regulate Your Emotions with Vera Cheng
Have you ever heard the term “emotional roller coaster”? Sometimes our emotions can change quickly, from happy to sad, from angry to guilty. When we are in a difficult situation, we often react impulsively and feel bad afterwards, or dismiss our emotions because we do not know how to feel them fully. Learning to regulate our emotions is a lifelong journey, and requires practice.
