Emotional Hygiene
Today I learned the term Emotional Hygiene. When and why has our physical health become more important than our mental health? I googled it and found a Ted Talk of a guy who talks about what emotional hygiene is and why we all need to practice emotional "first aid".
When we get sick or injured, we do everything we can to heal and get better, so why don't we do the same when we're emotionally hurt?
Failure, rejection, and loneliness are all real issues that create deep psychological wounds and Read more…makes us believe things that aren't necessarily true. Our minds are very hard to change once we become convinced of something, and when our self-esteem hurts we begin ruminating.
Many studies show that when our self-esteem is low, we're a lot more vulnerable to the hurt of failure, rejection, stress and anxiety. Why then don't we treat ourselves with compassion in these moments of hurt?
In this video, Guy Winch says to battle negative thinking by forcing yourself to concentrate on something else until the urge passes. Protect your self-esteem, change your responses to failure, and take action when you're lonely. But what if your loneliness or low self-esteem is related to some other issues such as Social Anxiety Disorder?

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?
A long morning stroll on the beach or in the woods. An omelette from Nick's diner. Lunch with my sisters, mom,dad, and brother at Poopsies Pizza. A long workout at the gym. An evening with my best bud Sean having a couple of drinks and watching a live rock,jazz, or blues band. Perfect day!!

What lessons have you learned from failure, especially in your relationships?
Loyalty is the number one virtue. Also to be with someone who is a complete person without being needy.

How has your own suffering enlarged your capacity to be compassionate towards yourself and others?
Since I've been in the dumps at one time or another or the pits of hell. I can have compassion on those going through those rough times.

Friends: do you even need them? How do you make new ones?

@Strangekiiti I went through this last year when I stopped drinking. I lost contact with nearly everyone I knew and began spending more and more time alone. I don't think it's ever wrong to do your own thing. You have to do what feels good for you, and if drinking and dating doesn't, then there's no need to hang onto it. The people who are meant to stay, will. It's been well over a year and I still love staying in! I used to be invited to things, but never went 😅 When people stopped inviting Read more… me, I was a bit upset, but quickly realised that I would much rather stay home than go out to loud, smoky places and have a bad time. I guess it just depends on you, really. But I'm also curious to know whether it's damaging to our psyche. Thanks for raising that question.

I am an MBSR, mindfulness, and meditation teacher and engineer involved in the happiness.com project, for example, taking care of the https://academy.happiness.com/courses/online-mindful-based-stress-reduction course.

My mission is to support others in discovering their happiness or, even more importantly, handling the ups and downs of life more gracefully. Something I work on myself each day again and again with varying results but an overall positive trend. ;-)
On happiness.com, I can put Read more… into action what I've learned through mindfulness and meditation, together with what I learned as a media engineer.
Other than that, friends and family, the village community, gardening, and art projects play important roles in my life too as they keep me connected and grounded.

Please see the list of MBSR teachers here to be assured that I know what I am talking about when I am teaching the MBSR course.
