Our emotional & physical health

The stronger we are emotionally, the better we are able to handle all that life throws back at us and invariably life does. I also believe we will begin to build better relationships and bounce back from disappointments a lot quicker, the stronger we are.

It’s important, therefore, that we learn to focus on both our emotional and physical health as much as we can. Over our lifetime we get lost in the complications of life. We usually go on in our own sweet way until a health issue presents itself and so the cycle continues.

It requires some form of effort to build and maintain our physical health, as much as it does to build our emotional and mental health. The more time we spend working on these, the stronger we will be. Then there are those who are emotionally and physically well. They tend to have a sense of purpose as they continue to work on themselves.

They manage stress quickly and efficiently, have an air of contentment about them and bounce back a lot quicker from stressful situations. They know what they want from life. They have the flexibility to be able to adapt to new situations. Their self-esteem and confidence becomes more noticeable, as they become less hesitant on any decisions they have to make. They also have an air of calm around them.

In the busy lives that we lead, it would be good for all of us if we could strive towards better emotional and physical health.

  1. All of this is borne out by my recent experience, you can’t have physical well-being without emotional well-being; they are inextricably linked.

  2. I also agree with Brad. People make themselves ill when they are emotionally upset or dwell on certain things.

    Constantly thinking of bad stuff can cause illness I believe. Like thinking you’re ill will cause an illness.
