Emotional health presentation

This morning we had an outside speaker come in from Info-Nation. He wanted to educate us on emotional health. He had a diagram of a tree with many people on and around, each of them represented an emotional state, and he asked us to point out where we would put ourselves on the tree based on how we felt at the time. I placed my self at the bottom, as a person who was just lying down. I chose that person because it was a Monday morning. He then educated us on the difference between self harming and self injury, and that people who self injure are not attention seeking, but attention needing. We also discussed emotional states and how we control these states with triggers which are usually things which stimulate one or more of our 5 senses. he was saying that taste and sound were big contributors to our emotional state, where food and music or sounds can alter how we feel drastically.
