So one person will do their challenge first and the other one will be there for emotional support, and then the roles will be reversed. We will regroup after 10 minutes and talk about how the challenges went. After that, we can go for a second and even third round if you’re up for it.
If you wish to know more about rejection therapy, please watch the following TED talk: https://www.ted.com/talks/jia_jiang_what_i_learned_from_100_days_of_rejection
