We all carry inside some old wounds, some less than helpful messages and beliefs about ourselves and the world, some gathered tensions and negative emotions. We all have areas of our lives in which we cope very well, and some that give us trouble. We all have moments of weakness or must face life challenges which tax our ability to cope.
We all know what to do to keep ourselves physically healthy – eat well, sleep well, wash our hands, brush our teeth, exercise – all these things are basic elements of bodily hygiene. It helps us keep our bodies healthy and strong and makes it easier for them to fight infections and heal from injuries.
The same is true for mental hygiene – if we practice healthy emotional and psychological habits, we develop better self-awareness, healthy self-esteem, emotional intelligence and psychological resilience. When we understand our emotions and can regulate them without suppressing them, we stop being controlled by them, we no longer feel emotional chaos, because we now have ways of finding out what we feel and why. We are better able to cope with crisis and adversity and can even prevent psychological problems from occurring. We become able to practice inner peace, acceptance, gratitude, wisdom and kindness instead of stress, anxiety, anger, jealousy, isolation and sadness.
