For the next 2 years, PBS is focusing on a campaign to examine the role happiness plays in our lives — what makes us happy, who makes us happy, and why … or why not?
In association with the campaign, PBS is featuring a number of blogs on its website, touching on a variety of subjects that are tied to our emotional lives, from stress and depression, to addiction and PTSD. Eating disorders are among these issues and I am honored to be invited to blog on the subject.
You can read my first blog post now, Eating Disorders: The Path to Whole-Person Healing, and others to come in the weeks and months ahead.
On the website you may also watch excerpts from “This Emotional Life,” a 3-part TV series that aired January 4-6, 2010 in to mark the launch of PBS’s 2-year campaign to explore our emotional lives:
Part I: Family, Friends and Lovers — a look at the importance of relationships and why they are central to our emotional well-being.
Part II: Facing Our Fears — a look at emotions that are commonly regarded as obstacles to happiness, such as anger, anxiety and despair.
Part III: Rethinking Happiness — a look at how critical happiness is to our well-being and, yet, remains an elusive goal for many of us.
