Struggling to cope and feeling overwhelmed? | What are the traps and how to better navigate our emotions?

In this week’s video I  touch on the role our emotions play in how we cope and the two traps we can fall into when we struggle to deal with emotional overwhelm.  I also provide a different way to think about how we handle our emotions. 

When running workshops and speaking at events and conferences I get asked about coping strategies, particularly relating to managing our emotions.  This is a key area in maintaining our wellbeing and our performance and focus, so it’s no wonder.  I know I have fallen into trap no.2 (in the video - not the… erm toilet!) many times, so this is a subject close to my heart.  Next week I explore how emotions hook us.
