The Psychology of Self-Care

Fall 2020

University life & Postgraduate studies can be fruitful, but challenging. There will be ups and downs from time to time. In this workshop, Ms. Kate Yu introduced “The Cognitive Triangle” to point out that our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are all interconnected with each other, and influence our mind, emotions and actions. As a result, it is importance for us to manage our own emotions in constructive ways to alleviate stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflicts.

Self-care starts with accepting yourself that we have blind spots. Through self-reflection and positive thinking, you can let out everything you have been holding back and to ponder on life to pursue your dreams and goals.
