YOUR DAILY Emotional Workout (2)
is an Emotional Workout?
Workout is an internal growth process based on the integration
of traditional and holistic ideas and methods, with the
goal to create an emotional regimen customized for each
individual - one that looks at the whole person in an assertive,
compassionate, logical way.
traditional ideas and methods are based on the various
parts of Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Marriage & Family
holistic ideas and methods are based on Dr. Barry Green's
5 Stages of Healing, as well
as the Wheel of Life theories,
both of which viewing the person as a whole (physically,
emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and socially).
Green's 5 Stages of Healing is an incredibly powerful process
that enables individuals to experience significant shifts
- it has brought tremendous healing to many, many people
throughout the years and there is very little known about
a healing that goes to a deeper level. Just like with many,
many traditional theories, the focus is on releasing irrational/dysfunctional
learnings, and replacing with more rational and functional

acknowledged, maintained, and sustained in the most healthy,
can be done through various body modalities, including yogic
pranayama breathing exercises, Qi Qong, and T'ai Chi. This
is also done through various mental and emotional exercises,
with the focus on getting very specific with one's needs,
wants, resources, and abilities - to truly know and feel
"grounded" in one's self in all aspects of life. Through
these body-mind exercises, individuals learn basic and deeper
ideas of feeling GROUNDED: from communication skills to
practicing how to be in - and savor - each moment.
theories of the Wheel of Life
allow each individual to identify and understand how they
take care of themselves in each major aspect of life. Once
this is clear, they can identify what has caused them to
neglect themselves in these areas, and set short and long-term
goals in order to make desired shifts.

goal is to get to the core of the emotion, which is usually
centered around major life patterns, beliefs, and stories.
As the Emotional Workout continues, the client's
inner self strengthens as he or she gets to the deepest
level of awareness - focusing on shfiting from FEAR, DENIAL

and all relationships. The idea is that if each individual
recognizes their emotional needs and learns how to take
care of them it could change the way that individuals interact
with each other overall. It could:
- Minimize conflict
- Minimize taking negative feelings out on each other
- Increase communication
- Enable deeper understanding
