In the early 60’s, 70’s and even 80s, little was known about the impact of sugar, smoking, processed and refined foods etc on health and wellbeing.
But with years of research pointing to the long-term impact of these substances, as the facts emerged it initiated a physical health revolution, changing the global approach to nutrition.
Well, the same can be said for our MENTAL HEALTH.
Many people are not aware of the impact of their emotions on their mental health.
*Just like sugar creates all kinds of physical illness, from obesity to diabetes to strokes etc, so too your ungoverned emotions impact your mental health*
You literally decapitulate (meaning you go down to lower layers of brain function) whenever you have a perception that results in a polarized emotion.
So the more anger, blame, resentment, jealousy, frustration you feel, the more your blood, glucose and oxygen flows to your subcortical brain and that takes you away from being run by your prefrontal cortex which is where you have your greatest governance, adaptability and resilience.
By managing your emotions using the Demartini Method, you reverse this process and instead send your blood, glucose and oxygen to your higher functioning prefrontal cortex giving you greater objectivity and self-governance.
So we’ve had the physical health revolution and now it’s time for the MENTAL HEALTH REVOLUTION.
As a society, we’re waking up and realizing the impact of ungoverned emotions and the wisdom of managing our emotions.
We can either be animal-like, ungoverned, acting without thinking or we can learn a tool to help us become governed in our thinking before acting.
