Emotionally Fitness and your health

 Despite following a healthy lifestyle of meditation, diet and  exercise, do you  still find yourself experiencing negative emotions, such as fear and anxiety about the future? Are you concerned about how people think of you? Perhaps  after a broken relationship you are afraid to trust.
If you constantly need to have company around, are experiencing feelings of loneliness or feel the need to be always active, it could be a sign that you are driven by negative emotions.  Self doubt and a lack of clear di
rection in life can also give rise to negative emotions.

Negative emotions lead to emotional stress. Emotional stress does not  only come from external factors such as, problems with relatives, co workers or  spouse but are often due to the negative chatter we continually have in our head about our self or others. 

The amygdala is the area in the brain that processes emotions. Negative emotions puts the amygdala on high alert and triggers the fight or flight response. This increases your blood pressure, blood sugar levels, heart rate and muscle tension.  Under stress the adrenal glands produce the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline thrusting you in survival mode.  While this reaction can save your life or the life of others during an emergency or crisis, in most cases the  emotional stress we are undergoing such as the aggravation caused by  a spouse, friend or co worker, is not usually life threatening. But your body does not know this and continues to react as if you are in danger by flooding the system with excessive stress chemicals as it goes in survival mode.

Regular negative emotions such as worry, anxiety, anger and fear create emotional stress that leads to a host of ailments, such as back pains, weight gain, high blood pressure, stomach disorders, anxiety, depression and insomnia.  Negative emotions can also cause Inflammatory conditions such as ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and rashes.  Unresolved negative emotions can also hasten the ageing process.

Unfortunately with the onset of physical ailments we often forget  it is our emotional state that created and continue to create our physical ailment.  Emphasis is placed on improving our physical health and little or no attention is given to our emotional well being.

Stress reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga and exercise, can help to reduce our emotional stress levels but to prevent re-occurrence and become emotionally fit, we also need the tools to understand and assist us in resolving and preventing the situations and mental conditioning that trigger negative emotional response.  A trained coach can help you move your life in a positive direction. 

Enjoy!
