An emotional component is vital for our wellbeing and personal fulfilment but feeling anxiety, stress or fear can ruin even the best experiences.

We now know that the daily and life choices we make, from what food we eat to whom we choose to date or what jobs we take are largely affected by our emotions, no matter how rational we think we are. Emotions carry valuable information about our internal and external environment. And yet emotions is the topic we rarely talk about or have much understanding of.

In this talk, Dr. Gabija Toleikyte will explain the real nature and importance of emotions, what happens in the brain when you experience them and how to let them guide you into making the best choices for you. Moreover, you will learn why we make very poor judgements under stress or anxiety and how best to deal with these situations.
