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.
