Why we all need to practice emotional first aid

Why we all need to practice emotional first aid | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
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.

Annette Tonkin's curator insight, July 23, 2015 7:39 PM

This is a really thoughtful article especially related to how social our brains are and how the influence of others can have on us. It is worth reading for 2 reasons. 

Firstly, in relation to what might be possible clinically for patients who have lost the ability to perform an action 

Secondly, potentially how powerful the influence of others can have on us without us even knowing. Patients who are surrounded by negative influences may really struggle to overcome the adversity of an injury without taking this influence into consideration

Solitários têm 30% mais chances de morrer, diz pesquisa

Solitários têm 30% mais chances de morrer, diz pesquisa | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Se você ama a solidão, cuidado, esse amor não é recíproco. Como eu sei disso? Pesquisadores de uma universidade americana, Brigham Young University, acabaram de demonstrar isso. Eles reuniram 70 estudos sobre a relação entre solidão e expectativa de vida. Então, analisaram todos os resultados - pasme, foram quase 3,5 milhões de participantes! - para descobrir se, no fim das contas, o isolamento social realmente faz mal. E o resultado foi claro: solidão mata.

This article reviews the research done on the effects of being in nature on the brain. To help de-stress your patients it might be worth asking them to spend some time in nature. It is likely to have a positive effect on the brain and help with ruminating too much

Walking has always been when I do my thinking. Nice to know it does other (good) things to my brain!
