Guy Winch on Why We All Need to Practice Emotional First Aid

While we all know how important it is to take care of our physical health, we don't take our emotional health nearly as seriously. But why? Why do we seem to value our bodies more than we value our minds? Emotional pain like guilt, loss, failure, and loneliness can impact our lives in dramatic ways – especially if we ignore it or try to deal with it by ourselves.

In this TED talk, Psychologist Guy Winch makes the case for taking care of our emotional health. Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Winch. But we don’t have to. He asks us to take our emotional health as seriously as we take our physical health – and explains scientifically proven techniques we can use to heal our psychological pain.

Turning Pro by Stephen Pressfield.jpgTurning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life's Work.

by Steven Pressfield

Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice. "You don't need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is change your mind." When we turn pro, we give up a life that we may have become extremely comfortable with.

What we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our voice and we find our self-respect.
