My Humanness

As human beings, we all have brains, bodies and emotions. But somewhere along the line, someone forgot to educate us about these things. This has resulted in us not being very skilled at understanding or managing them.

I believe that if we had been taught about our emotions in school, then there wouldn't be as many people suffering with mental health issues or stress as there is today.

The tools and techniques on this page aim to correct that oversight in our education, with information about key elements of our brains and emotions to help you to understand and manage them better.
