Emotional Fitness offers a program of 30 proven 'emotional workouts' to help people achieve balance, resilience and self-acceptance.
According to Cynthia Morton, to be emotionally fit means 'to be unafraid of being yourself—warts and all.'
She believes that the hardest work we ever do in our lifetime is to build a loving and caring relationship with ourselves.
Her programs with clients help them learn how to care for themselves and handle life's challenges.
This book is based on experiential work and offers workouts that are structured at different levels.
These assist individuals to overcome sensitive and difficult issues in their lives and to reach self-acceptance.
Emotional Fitness also tells Cynthia's own life story, from the abuse she suffered as a child to the persistent patterns of self-abuse she developed as she grew up.
Cynthia's honesty about herself in dealing with the consequences of her background and her later behaviour represents the kind of emotional fitness she is advocating, and is a powerful testimony to its effectiveness.
