Why we all need to practice emotional first aid

Guy Winch asks us to take our emotional health as seriously as well take our physical health- and explores how to heal from common heartaches.

We’ll go to the doctor when we feel flu-is or nagging pain. So why don’t we see a psychologist 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. He 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.

Can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone was psychologically healthier? If there were less loneliness and less depression? If people knew how to overcome failure? If they felt better about themselves and more empowered? If they were happier and more fulfilled? I can, because that’s the world I want to live in. And that’s the world my brother wants to live in as well. And if you just become informed and change a few simple habits, well — that’s the world we can all live in.
