How Does Emotional Health Effect Our Lives?
Ever feel emotionally out of control? Constantly making the wrong choices? Do you understand how your emotional health directly effects physical health and how you choose to deal with life?
According to an article at huffingtonpost.com, “How’s Your Emotional Well-Being?”
“We use the term mental health and of course we talk about physical health, but we very rarely talk about emotional health. And yet our emotions are absolutely integral to the way in which we relate and engage with our world.
When we talk about mental health issues, we are not just talking about the way that we think. We are talking about the way that we feel, and the way that our feelings affect us. And I think it’s fair to say that we all know that if we are feeling emotionally stressed or emotionally vulnerable or unstable that this will have a massive impact on our physical health as well. To have a healthy mind we need to be in a healthy emotional state, we need to be feeling alright, and this in turn affects our physical health and well-being as well. So both our mental health and our physical health are actually reliant upon our emotional well-being. They are underpinned by our emotional health.
When we talk about being mindful and teach people about mindfulness, what we are actually trying to do is to enable them to train their mind to be more reflective and more aware of what’s going on, both in and around them and to develop their ability to listen to both themselves as well as to others. And it’s our emotions, our feelings that are informing this process.” To read the entire article click here.
