In this second installment of the 4-part series Self Compassion, Brigitte Shipman and Dr. Michelle Trias discuss how healing the emotional aspects of ourselves is key to healing whatever condition we may have, and how loving ourselves is an important component of that process.
Dr. Michelle explains that in order to achieve optimal health and wellbeing, we have to look at the whole person including past history, traumas, relationships, and heartbreaks to get to the "why" of illnesses.
She tells us that the number one killer for women is heart disease, which she believes is intricately linked to emotions in many cases.
She shares a story where she started crying when she kept hearing "You are enough" from an instructor in a yoga class. She says that many of us consciously or unconsciously carry the belief that we are not good enough moms, we are not doing enough, or in some way "not enough" and that we need to incorporate daily practices to love ourselves.
They talk about the importance of positive self-talk which can release the happiness hormone in the body and remembering that "we are not our thoughts" when negative self-talk pops up in our head.
