Invest in Your Emotional Health and Wellness
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
In the same way you’d go to a gym or hire a trainer to become more physically healthy, going to therapy can aid in you becoming more emotionally well. Research shows that participation in therapy can improve problem solving, stress management, frustration tolerance, and decision making. People who have gone to therapy report increased relationship satisfaction, the ability to set more realistic goals, and the improvement in the capability to manage strong emotional reactions/feelings.
Benefits of participating in therapy:
Therapy is well-known for the establishment of better emotional wellness in your daily life.
Participation in therapy has a strong reputation as a tool for overcoming anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, infidelity, and trauma
Therapy can also be beneficial in helping individuals improve their problem-solving capacities, stress management, frustration tolerance, and rational thinking
Building greater self awareness is a major benefit of therapy. Development of heightened self awareness helps in identifying problematic patterns, defense mechanisms and self defeating behaviors that stand between you and your best life!
“Talk therapy” helps to rewrite the neurochemistry in the brain which alters activity in the parts of the brain that control emotion, fear, and executive functioning. Executive functioning is essentially the "executive" of your brain, it makes the decisions like an executive. So, if you have a calm, happy, healthy executive living in your brain he or she will make more adaptive and helpful decisions.
