How to Heal From the Inside Out with Debra Fileta
Manage episode 357136344 series 2390671
Hey friend! Our emotional health is crucial to our well-being, but sometimes it’s hard to know exactly how to get there or even what to do. What does it look like for us to move toward healing from the inside out?
I invited my friend Debra Fileta on the show to walk us through those questions and talk about the practical side of emotional health. Debra is a licensed professional counselor and has written a new book called RESET, which is all about healing from the inside out.
Listen in as we talk about:
Why self-care really is soul care (and not made up or selfish!)
What triggers can tell us and how we can welcome them instead of avoid them
How children learn about emotional health
One exercise you can do in the next 24 hours to start to identify your thought patterns
Debra Fileta is a licensed professional counselor, speaker, and host of the Love + Relationships podcast. She is the author of six books, including her latest, RESET: Powerful Habits to Own Your Thoughts, Understand Your Feelings, and Change Your Life. Debra and her husband, John, live with their four children in Lancaster, PA.
~~“Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it never will. Your mindset is 90% of the battle.”
~~“Our thoughts lead to our feelings which then lead to our behaviors. So when you are thinking negative thoughts and are hopeless, the truth is your life is going to follow suit.”
~~“It is hard work to get healthy, but it is harder work to stay unhealthy.”
~~“We need to understand the underlying thoughts that are leading to the underlying feelings that are impacting our behavior. We can't just expect to change from the external.”
~~The spirit can give us what we need to not continue to do things in an unhealthy way and live an abundant life the way Jesus calls us to here and now.”
