Short and simple mental/emotional health practice - Do you practice emotional first aid? Do you give your emotional wounds & pain the same level of attention as you give to your physical injuries & ailments? A cut can get infected and cause a lot of trouble if we don’t clean it and apply a band aid. The same is true for our mental scrapes & bruises. Experiencing failure, rejection and loneliness can cause emotional & mental illness if we don’t deal with those injuries properly. Learn to identify unhealthy emotional habits (like negative self-talk) and turn them into healthy ones, then share reliable mental health care information sources with those you care about.
