How your emotions affect your body


Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. There is a connection between mind and body. People who are in good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. 

There are ways you can improve your emotional health. First, try to recognize your emotions and understand why you are having them. The classification of the causes of sadness, stress and anxiety in your life can help control your emotional health. The following are some other useful tips.

Express your feelings appropriately. 

If feelings of stress, sadness or anxiety are causing physical problems, saving these feelings can make you feel worse. It's okay to let your loved ones know when something bothers you. However, keep in mind that your family and friends cannot always help you deal with your feelings properly. At this time, ask someone out of the situation for help. Try to ask your doctor or psychologist for advice and support to help you improve your emotional health.

Live a balanced life. 

Focus on the things for which you feel grateful. Try not to become obsessed with problems at work or home that lead to negative feelings. This does not mean that you have to pretend to be happy when you feel stressed, anxious or angry. It is important to deal with these negative feelings, but also try to focus on the positive things in your life. You may want to use an agenda to keep track of things that make you feel happy or calm. Some research has shown that having a positive attitude can improve your quality of life and boost your health.

Calm the mind and body. 

Relaxation methods, such as meditation, listening to music, listening to CD or mp3 of guided images, doing yoga and Tai Chi are useful ways to balance your emotions. 

Take care of yourself. 

To have good emotional health, it is important that you take care of your body with a regular routine that includes eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep and exercising to relieve accumulated tension. Avoid overeating and do not abuse drugs or alcohol. Drug or alcohol use simply causes other problems, such as family and health problems.

Talk to a professional.

Remember that poor emotional health can weaken your body's immune system. This makes you more likely to have colds and other infections in emotionally difficult times.

You may not be used to talking with your doctor about your feelings or problems in your personal life. But remember, the doctor does not always identify that you are stressed, anxious or disturbed simply by looking at you. It is important to be honest with your doctor if you are having these feelings. 

I, as a professional, am willing to listen to you and give you all the advice, all in order to help you have a better quality of life.
