Essentially creating your own Emotional Regimen™(2).
is an Emotional Regimen™?
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
ideas and methods are based on the various parts of Psychodynamic,
Humanistic, and Marriage & Family therapies.
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).
throughout this process is the idea of GETTING GROUNDED as a whole
person. Grounding is to your emotional structure what stretching
is for your physical structure. It is needed daily, to ensure
that the mind and emotions are being acknowledged, maintained,
and sustained in the most healthy, effective way.
This 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.

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
With all that
the Emotional Regimen encompasses, individuals are able
to experience both immediate and enduring results - just like
with a physical Regimen.
The goal is
to get to the core of the emotion, which is usually centered around
major life patterns, beliefs, and stories. As the Emotional
Regimen 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 unawareness to UNDERSTANDING WHY,
and then to the ultimate place of ACTION.
Emotional Regimen, each individual is able to connect to
the exercises and tools that work for them, and take the necessary
action for change.
This has shown
itself to be effective with individuals, couples, 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
the Emotional Regimen™
for two significant reasons:
1. To provide
a regimen that focuses on nurturing and acknowledging our WHOLE
self on a daily basis.
individuals focus on their body everyday - going to the gym, "working
out" - but they ignore their emotions. Throughout each person's
day emotions build up that never get cycled out of the body. Hence,
they build up and build up until, unknowingly "stress", "tension",
"anxiety", "depression", etc. is created.
to be cycled out (3).
If they remain in the body, this stress, tension, anxiety, etc.
can cause physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social problems.
Having a daily regimen - an Emotional Regimen - allows
individuals to sustain a more balanced and grounded emotional
state, which in turn, will affect all aspects of their lives.
2. We are
all different beings, made up of different life stories, schemas,
perceptions, and beliefs that are based on what we learned about
there is no cookie-cutter regimen for everyone - each person needs
to be considered in his or her differences and truly connect to
what type of Emotional Regimen best fits them.

by Aimee Zakrewski in 2006, it is not an entirely unique notion
in that throughout history individuals around the world have seen
the need and the benefits of taking care of your emotions.
What does make this approach to therapy and growth unique is the
integration of traditional and alternative teachings and experiences
to create a therapy that truly works.
