Holmbo Posted September 7, 2017 Share Posted September 7, 2017 I don't know how common the concept of emotional hygiene is. I've only come across it quite recently but I like the idea of it. The idea is that just as we have habits to take care of ours and others physical health, such as brushing teeth daily, exercising or not sneeze on people, we should have habits to take care of our psychological health. The habits are supposed to for example help avoid negative thinking or to make us more aware of our psychological well being. I feel like our society is much less equipped to handle emotional well being than physical. Do you agree? What kind of societal rules or habits do you think would help people to stay more healthy? One thing I think would help is if everyone was more mindful of peoples need to reflect and concentrate without interruptions. For example at my work its common that people come to each other with short questions and reflections any time of the day. Usually they are small but every time it is an interruption to that persons concentration, and also to the people nearby because we share offices. I wish my work was better structured to handle this. Maybe designated hours were no one is allowed to interrupt. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
