We’ll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. Listen to the Ted Talk below and hear him makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
It is true that we take the time every day to brush our teeth or to shower of body. We know how important it is to put a bandage on a cut or go to the doctor when we aches too much. But what if we understood the importance of having a healthy mind ?
What if we realized the impact that our negative thinking is having on our lives.
We all face frustration, failure, disappointment and rejection but because we don’t take the time to heal ourselves they turn into judgement, limitation and for some of us burn out or depression.
Because we are lacking emotional hygiene instead of healing our pain we make it worse by letting our unhealthy psychological habits take over our mind. As a result our mind can trick us into believing that we are worthless and that we can’t succeed.
It is time we understand that we have the power maintain a healthy mind and that it is the key to a more fulfilling life.
