Wellness Committee: How to practice emotional first aid by Guy Winch

October 26, 2017

This is the first of a monthly series produced by the Wellness Committee here at Finlandia University. For a full archive of Wellness Committee articles go to http://www.finlandia.edu/news/tag/wellness-committee/. This was submitted by Veronica Horning.  

We have all been taught, most at a very young age, how to take care of our physical bodies: cover a cut with a band aid, put aloe on a sunburn to ease pain, wash hands to stop the spread of germs.  These are just a few of many strategies we use to maintain our physical health.

But what strategies are we using to maintain our emotional health?

As we head into the second half of the semester (not to mention the holiday season) the Finlandia Wellness Committee invites you to watch psychologist Dr. Guy Winch deliver a TedTalk on how to improve your emotional hygiene.  The video is available below.
