Today we looked at a variety of topics. We explored ways to maintain strength in our convictions while facing emotional abuse from others. We may not have control over what people say or think about us. However, we do have control over how we respond to such situations.
As the main topic of the group today was “relaxation” we discussed what were peoples’ favourite holiday destinations and why? While group members explained the reasons for their choices, it became apparent that the destinations chosen were environments they felt gave them an inner peace. Thinking about this safe environment helped give people a different perspective on life. We then went on to do a relaxation exercise which left people with a sense off calmness. Doing relaxation exercises can prove to be so beneficial, as it can feel at times that life goes by at “100 MPH” and that we never stop.
