The first episode is all about how to cope with frustration when it arises. Chewie and BB-8 are on a journey to visit Kashyyyk, Chewie's hometown. There's a mechanical issue, and the two friends become increasingly agitated. The narrator, Headspace's Samantha Snowden, offers advice on how to handle a frustrating situation when things don't go the way you want them to.
