Staying emotionally well

How many us find it hard to balance our emotions so that we keep us at the top of our game with what we physically deal with? Although I try to stay emotionally well, some of the issues I deal with aren’t always easy to get past. I am sure others will find that too.

The tips below may help:

  • Begin to make it a habit of making a mental note of your feelings. Try to work out why you’ve got the feelings you have. Perhaps think about using affirmations to help shift those feelings;
  • Always focus on the positive. It’s a good way to stay emotionally focused. Having negative feelings drains us physically and allows illness to set in. Focus on the positive also because that is what you will attract in life;
  • Physical health is important, take care of it. All illnesses create emotional negativity. Take control by exercising, eating better and getting the right amount of sleep;
  • Stay connected personally with friends. Take up a hobby, or find something that interests you. Social networking also helps put us in touch with people we know, but don’t always get to see;
  • Don’t dwell on things you have no control over. Keep things that have happened in the past, firmly in the past. The focus must be what we will attract in our lives, so keeping our thoughts clearly in the present is important.
  • Find inner-calm. This is important; because without having inner-calm, nothing else will work effectively.

When we achieve good emotional health, we are more likely to handle stress, family and friends better. We are also more likely to work through challenges we have possibly overlooked.

We will do things differently and making changes aren’t easy, but if we all changed just one little thing, that change would go some way to help us stay emotionally well.

  1. Yes, thanks for sharing your positive message. It helps a lot when you feel emotionally well. I hope I can continue to do this in the future!

  2. You bring up a lot of interesting points. I feel as if a lot of them are related to one another. In some ways working on one point helps with working on or taking a step towards working and dealing with another.

    1. You are absolutely right LeAnna, that is exactly how it works. There are different aspects of what we deal with emotionally, but all that we deal with is completely linked with each other. Thanks for posting and for your support.

  3. Great points! I do have problems with some of the things you mention like leaving the past.I use to be horrible about this but I’ve gotten a lot better and I check myself before I say anything to people especially my mom cause she is the one that always points out to me how I do this.

    A hobby is great too. I just need to make myself slow down and do it. I have several outside interests and have all the equipment to do them I just don’t slow down enough… and just chilling is a great way to minimize stress and emotionally unwind.

    We need to focus on positive thoughts and not sit and dwell on the negative things. We just have to make ourselves do these things to keep sane.
