Why we all need to practice emotional first aid

By | October 9, 2015

It´s so important that we practice emotional first aid! Have you sometimes thought that if we broke a leg we go to a doctor. If we have a problem in teeth, we go to a dentist. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness?

Guy Winch had an excellent lecture about it. And too about important it is to talk with you self in the right way.
This is superb lecture and on same time personally talk of Guy Winch, so I recommend that you have a look.
Here is excellent book after Guy Winch

And it would be great if you leave a comment afterwards about how you like his ideology.

    I like this philosophy. It’s true, we need to treat emotional injuries in similar ways to physical injuries. And I like that he does call them “injuries” – they really can feel like it!

    I read an article recently about a woman who decided she would treat her mental illness with some of the same ways you treat a physical illness – good sleep, good nutrition, etc. I think it’s a good way to be kind to your mental health.

    Thanks for the fantastic video!
    Guy Winch really explains well the need for emotional hygiene. We could all practice more emotional first aid!
    I agree with him that if we were to focus and build on our emotional needs that the world would be a happier and better place. We all have to battle those negative thought at some time in our lives and thinking positively will help change our outlook and help our self-esteem.
    Thanks for sharing this helpful information.

      Thank you for kind words.

      I 100% agree with you about the thoughts. Negative thoughts come always up but it is important to change to positive thoughts as quick as possible.
