Guilt &  Washing Hands

Washing hands might temporarily ease guilt, but it's not a lasting solution. Research shows a link between "disgust" from mistakes and physical cleansing. However, this strategy can lead to compulsive behaviours over time.

Mindful Strategy

While washing hands can provide relief, it's essential to recognise if it truly resolves guilt. Temporary fixes may require repeated actions, like a painkiller. Instead, learn from guilt and respond differently in similar situations for lasting change.

Transforming Guilt

Guilt doesn't have to control us. It's an opportunity to learn and grow. Embrace strategies that lead to complete resolution, not just momentary relief. Break the cycle and empower yourself for a positive shift.
