8 Human Emotions

Human Emotions

One of our new Senior Peer Counsellors (Jo-Ann) shared a table with us that states there are over 6,000 emotions in the English Dictionary. The table organizes the emotions into groups and shows how they relate to each other. It’s a useful tool and perhaps may be helpful when dealing with our clients. Please see the table below.

Emotions Table



On November 11, Canadians take a moment of silence to honor and remember those who have served and who continue to serve our country. More than 2.3 million Canadians have served throughout our nations history and more than 118,000 made the ultimate sacrifice.
The poppy is the symbol of Remembrance Day. It became widespread in Europe after the soil in France and Belgium became rich in lime from the debris and rubble caused by the fighting of the First World War. The little red flower also flourished around gravesites of the war dead.

Joke of the Day

A woman on the phone to her friend: I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising… I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
