8 Ways to Stop Feeling Empty Inside [Video]

Have you been feeling empty lately? Lonely? Numb? Or Hopeless? Emotional numbness, believe it or not, actually boils down to our bodies’ three evolutionary stress responses: fight, flight, or freeze. When you go through any event in life that is extremely taxing in an emotional or physical way, your body’s survival mechanism is activated and causes your psyche to go into the “freeze” mode. This blocks out the pain from negatively affecting you any further. Emptiness can also just be a feeling of general dissatisfaction or lack of fulfillment which leads to an inability to experience positive emotions. Although it may provide a comfortable escape for a little while, this type of depersonalization can be very harmful to the mind over time. So with the goal of overcoming emptiness, here are few ways to stop feeling empty inside. Want to know the real reason behind your emptiness?
