Ever felt the butterflies in the stomach and disturbed health conditions due to emotional downs? Our physical health depends on a good diet and exercise but, a study suggests that it can also be motivated by a regular dose of positive emotions.
People with good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, which indicates a better ability in learning healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a part of life. They generally stay motivated and keep their relationships healthy!
How emotions affect health?
Every time we feel negative, our body responds the way we feel or act. It is a natural mind and body connection. Being upset or any other similar emotion might disturb the digestive system and indicates that something isn’t right. For instance, you might feel hypertension or stomach ulcer after the demise of a family member or friend.
Improving Mental Health
Though some emotions affect health and are beyond control, we can somehow take steps to improve the mental health with the following steps :-
1. Express your emotions
Rather than hiding what’s running inside, express freely what is disturbing you. Excess thinking can keep you worrying over and over and end up landing in stress.
2. Balance your mind
You may be suffering from stress either at workplace, school or even at your home. It is important to let go the matters which are disturbing you in any way. Tyr not to obsess about the problems and keep yourself positive.
3. Do not stop negative emotions
Do not control your negative emotions as they may affect you later. Be free and talk to some like minded people.
Relaxation is more important than anything else you see! Calming methods such as yoga, meditation, listening to soft music etc. can let you relax your mind. Keep yourself fit and active to feel good physically.
5. Maintain routine
A regular routine is a key to good health. It is important to take care of your body by having a regular routine for eating meals, getting enough sleep and exercising to relieve pent-up tension.
Stay mentally ready and active!
