Emotional pain can lead to distressing thoughts – both inwards towards themselves, and outwards towards others, and these feelings can be heightened during the Winter months, especially around the Christmas period, when everyone is spending time with loved ones, and if a person with emotional trauma is also alone, then these feelings get even get worse.
Mental trauma is one of the main reasons that people turn to counseling, coaching, and therapy. Emotional pain, or emotional or mental trauma, is a feeling of suffering on a non-physical level; these feelings can also make us feel uncomfortable too, with fatigue, stomach issues, and chest pains being common physical symptoms.
There are five signs that someone may be suffering from emotional pain:
- Personality changes
- Uncharacteristic emotions, such as anger or moodiness
- Withdrawal from societal interactions
- Self-neglect or loss of self-respect
- An overwhelming feeling of hopelessness
Treating sufferers with these overwhelming emotions begins with a change in how you think, act, and behave, so that you start to learn new ways to deal with emotional pain, as opposed to the copying mechanisms that they previously used that could not work.
Some things sufferers can do to start helping themselves
If you are suffering with emotional pain, here are some things that you can do yourself, outside of a counselor, that will help with your trauma:
- Get a Hobby: Find something new that you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time or opportunity.
- Exercise: You may struggle to get out of bed when suffering from emotional pain, but this can actually make things worse. Instead, take up yoga, go for regular walks, or do some other form of light exercise.
- Don’t Dwell: Don’t focus on what caused your pain; this will only make things worse and you cannot change the past. Instead, ask yourself what you can do now, and how can you help the situation from now on? If nothing can be done, the best way forward, difficult as it may be, is to accept the situation, allow yourself to feel how you do, and this may help you move forward to a better place.
- Don’t keep Retelling: Retelling the story to anyone willing to listen may seem like a good idea, but it can have the effect of keeping the problem fresh, like reopening an old wound. Instead, look at where you are now, what you’ve done positively, and what you’ve managed to overcome so far.
- Keep a Journal: If something good happens, write it down. If you feel bad about something, write it down. If if something’s concerning you, write it down and figure out how you might overcome future obstacles.
- Cry: Let your tears go; don’t keep them in. Crying helps to release toxins from your body, relieves stress, and has other health benefits too.
- Open Up to Others: Don’t hide in your room. Let others in. It hurts to see others in pain, so open up to others and let them help.
- Be thankful: Write down everything that you can be glad about, then review it, smile about it, talk to others about it. Be thankful!
So How Can Journey Into Wellness Help With Emotional Pain?
Getting Back to Living Your Life
People do not have to cope with PTSD. Coping doesn’t heal or release the root cause of the problem. Journey Into Wellness help you HEAL your PTSD once and for all. With the introduction of the Heartbeat Trauma Release (HTR) method, the full recovery plan works efficiently, and works every single time.
Having worked within the mental health industry for many years, Journey Into Wellness has noticed the negative and sobering hopelessness that is spread to others who are struggling with emotional pain and PTSD. We are here to share a new paradigm that can release a trauma, a pain, or a hurt in one session.
No matter what or where your PTSD comes from, the HTR method releases the emotion attached to the memory.
Some may say ‘no way; this is not possible’!
Today’s society teaches us that PTSD and emotional trauma can break a person forever. We now know that this is untrue. The human brain can heal itself when the emotion that is holding the PTSD captive is released, just like the body heals a wound.
Using the HTR method, we will help you release beliefs that are holding you hostage and preventing you from healing, and create new ones that allow you to move forward.
