Emotional Medicine Rx:
Cry When You’re Sad, Stop When You’re Done, Feel Good Fast.
Sad, Mad, Scared, Glad? Emotions are medicine when you know
how to use them. Emotional experience plays an essential role in sustaining happy
and healthy living. This is especially true when you discover the crucial
difference between thinking about emotion and the brief, embodied, mindful experience of emotion. Safe,
responsible emotional flow (usually 3 minutes or less) opens the body for pleasure
and play, the heart for love, the mind for innovation, the will for aligned
action and the spirit for be-here-now bliss. Although trauma can temporarily
interrupt this natural design by numbing and separating people from emotion, the
body has another efficient plan for restoring resources.
Andrade LCSW author and psychotherapist will be here to share simple,
practical, inspiring ways to reclaim your resilience and feel good fast!
