Emotions and your Body: How being emotionally Healthy helps!


Emotional changes in one’s life are not limited to mental or psychological consequences, but also have plenty of physical ramifications. When you feel something strongly, your body begins to be involved in your emotional state. 

When your muscles are added to the emotional mix and your feelings you discover that every emotional state has its unique postural balance and shape. A confident person always holds himself high, with a straight back and a face held up. An insecure person or someone who has given up slouches and slumps, and looks down most of the time. Your face can work beautifully as an index to the host of emotions in your mind, and your body follows suit. Angry people tend to have clenched fists. 


A person with a nervous disposition may be fidgety and flighty all the time. A closed, suspecting person may have his hands clasped behind him with a mild hunch. So how do you keep your body fit emotionally? Simple. Be emotionally healthy! Being emotionally healthy also means managing day-to-day issues like stress, making and keeping friendships, changing bad habits. Being emotionally fit is the key to success in all aspects of life. If we do not care for ourselves, frustration, tension, anger, and poor health can develop. Physical fitness exercises help keep our bodies strong. Emotional fitness is about managing feelings. Do not bottle your feelings, but let them out. 


Letting them out does not always mean yelling or shouting or pummelling someone- you could write out your feelings on paper and burn the sheets off, or punch a pillow or a punching bag till you feel a release, or go on a long run until you feel you’ve drained your negative emotion off. Practicing these exercises daily will strengthen your ability to control negative feelings. Physical exercise matters. A combination of proper nutrition with physical exercise will improve your emotional well-being. Deep breathing exercise and meditation help abundantly. Spend a little time each day or each week doing something you enjoy. Be grateful for all you have been given in life. S


ee that you get adequate sleep time every night. Or do take a nap every now and then. Exercise your creativity by singing, writing, drawing, painting, knitting, cooking or anything else that you love. You need not have to be a pro- just follow your passion because these activities are highly therapeutic. Forgive yourself and others. When you forgive, your whole body lets go with a sigh of relief. Have fun and LAUGH. Take time out to watch a comic show or play with kids, or even go back to your childhood, play about and watch cartoons! Music is a sure shot method for you to let go, as much as Dance. Enjoy your emotional well-being, and let it flow to your body, to let you bask in the glory of Physical well-being.
