Nutritional Medicine Practitioner Fiona Kane and Cultural Activist Ian Zammit co-host Happy and Healthy: the podcast for people keen to live happier and healthier lives! In the ninth episode of the series, which is streaming on demand below, we discuss Why We All Need to Practice Emotional First Aid, TED Talk by Guy Winch which has now been watched over five million times.
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 Psychologist, 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.
Correction: Sorry, Fiona accidentally gave credit to the wrong person for a quote “Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you are right” is a quote by Henry Ford (not Henry Fonda!)
