A very appropriate postscript.

The strong case for maintaining the very best of emotional hygiene.

As is the way of things, last night, after I had read out aloud to Jean yesterday’s conclusion to my personal story entitled The Pen (the first part was on Monday), Jean and I were looking around for something to watch. We dipped into TED Talks and found a recent addition from a Dr. Guy Winch, a licensed psychologist, keynote speaker and author.  Here is that talk that so perfectly rounds off the previous two days.

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. 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.

  1. Remarkable talk Paul, and so many good pointers he has made here to loneliness, failure, rejection, and its a great follow up to your Posts… And I guess Paul that is why I am knitting more… 🙂 as I take my mind elsewhere…
    ( Good to know his brother is now well )
    Many thanks Paul.. If we all change those few simple habits and learn to think more positive, we then not only help our own emotional health, But the Worlds emotional Health brightens too

  2. I suggest you read ORTHOMOLECULAR PSYCHIATRY. Too many doctors believe that drugs are the answer to nutritional problems, including PTSD.

      1. That looks like a wonderful site.. I didn’t know about it. Well, I haven’t the eyesight to use the computer a lot, but I will . Thanks!
