Why We All Need to Practice Emotional First Aid with Guy Winch
This video addresses the fact that we all need emotional self-care.
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.
Mindfulness and Healing with Shannon Paige
This video provides an example of silencing behaviors, an engaged physician actively connected with a suffering patient, breath as a meditation tool that teaches how to “respond rather than to react.”
Shannon Paige is a writer, sacred activist, dedicated Yoga teacher. She is also the founder of Om Time Yoga Center and the styles of Bhava Vinyasa for Depression and Anxiety and Anjali Restorative Yoga.
Shannon battled with cervical cancer ferociously….and won. Although she had survived, the battle with depression, especially the pressure and anxiety of how she should feel “lucky” for having survived, nearly crippled her. She narrates how many people, after surviving life threatening circumstances, are also robbed of the ability to smile for real, the ability to connect, and the ability to hope. “Depression is hard. Depression is gross. And Depression is Mean.” A doctor stepped in and told her to get back into her body, volunteer, and do yoga. For Shannon, the battle with depression was actually as hard as battling cancer. Through this, Shannon discovers that while, yoga can’t heal depression, getting into your body can change the mind and create a state of empowerment, stability, and release.
