Why we all need to practice emotional first aid
Why we all need to practice emotional first aid
Happy   New Year!

Each year, I reaffirm my resolve to nurture my health - physical, emotional, and spiritual. Ironically, it wasn't until I was debilitated by depression that I realized the critical importance of emotional health. Like most people, I went to the doctor when I was in physical pain. But not when I was in emotional pain. I recently saw a TED talk by Guy Winch, who makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene - take care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies. 

I invite you to watch the TED talk and start practicing emotional hygiene. Need help? Click here to learn  7 ways to practice emotional hygiene

Wishing you wellness,
