Do What You Think Like
Clearly, the above expression does not sound right, because, as human beings, we tend to "do what we feel like." Unfortunately, when we act based on emotions, we tend to make a situation worse. We get angry and yell. We get anxious and avoid dealing with something important. We get hungry and eat junk food. We get stressed and become less efficient, which leads to more stress. Even positive emotions can lead us astray, such as when we get excited about something and then use poor judgment.
This webinar will teach how to be aware of and control emotions that lead us to poor decision making, how to set deliberate goals for oneself, and how to follow through with actions that are consistent with what one really wants. The trick is to "think" while feeling, and this is harder than one might think.
This webinar is a part of Rethink Ed's Social and Emotional Learning Expert Webinar Series
