This "Worry Tree" is a poster I would love to hang in my classroom. It is a resource I think students could refer to, when needed, to help them regulate their emotions and deal with their "problems" in an effective way. Eventually, they will be able to follow this process on their own, and develop their emotional competence - which is an important skill that underlies positive mental health (Reinke et al., 2011).
Making connections with people occurs when you network. This will give you the ability to collect their details, develop associations and communicate with these people till they put their trust in you. For anybody who is running a business, this will give you the opportunity to close a great deal with them.
