Emotional Health

by Dr. Regina Campbell

“Emotions influence every action we take. So the more we are aware of our feelings, the more we gain conscious control over our lives.” Jessica Moore

Today many are hurting from life’s difficulties. People are losing the battles of life in their mind, heart and eventually in their bodies. The body can only take so much stress or emotional wounds. In this article I want to address emotional health. Emotional health is an important part of your overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They are able to cope with life’s challenges. Emotionally healthy people still feel stress, anger, and sadness. But they know how to manage their negative feelings.

It is imperative that if you want to live a healthy life then your emotional well-being is just as important as your physical well-being. Many have harbored and masked past hurt till it has become the norm. Yet deep inside you feel emotionally broken and deeply wounded. How do you heal from past hurt that has left you emotionally wounded? First is to recognize that what you encountered continues to have a negative impact on your life. Second admit that you are truly hurting. Thirdly, work with a licensed counselor or therapist to identify what is the true cause of your emotional wound. Finally allow the licensed counselor or therapist to assist you. At times when you’ve done all you know to do and you continue to have deep emotional wounds then you need someone that can assist you to navigate through the fog of your pain to determine the root cause. The professional counselor or therapist can assist you by devising a strategy to living a healthy and whole life. Emotional health is so vital and essential to having good health. The key is to address your emotional health like any other health issues because going without addressing it will become increasingly difficult to cope.

Emotional wellness inspires self-care, relaxation, stress reduction and the development of inner strength. It is important to be attentive to both positive and negative feelings and be able to understand how to handle these emotions. It is an important part of overall wellness. It is the will of God for you to be emotional healthy so that you can experience a fulfilled life on earth.
