Learning the exercises
Prof. Chen Yanling gave a lecture in the morning. Her topic was "Teachers Stress and Mental Health." With some individual cases, Prof. Chen analyzed that the source of stress is from ones own notions. If one can respect lives and get along with others peacefully, then the stress will go away, and one can achieve good mental health. As a doctor and Falun Gong practitioner, Prof. Chen described that by her own experience Falun Gongs teachings and exercises helped her to improve her mental and physical health.
