We have been exploring how our brains work, and talking about things we can do to control our brain, rather than our brain controlling us when things get challenging.
For an experiment to see how we would cope, we were given the task to jointly draw a described scene with our buddy. We could not talk to each other, had to both show control over the one pen, and manage our emotions while we did this. This also meant we had to give up some control over what we were creating too. Interestingly, we did one picture with us both using our drawing hand, and one picture with us both using our non-drawing hand.
Judge for yourself how you think we coped.
