The Secret Role Emotions Play In Our Health And Wellness

Aug 22, 2008
Whether we know it or not or whether we accept it or not, our emotions play a critical role in our overall health. Here are some questions for you to consider: Do you have a handle on your emotions? Are you steady and consistent? Are you all over the map? Are you even aware of your feelings or emotions? Do you cry at the drop of a hat? Or have you never cried at all in your entire life? I am not trying to make any judgments here, but I want you to look at and be honest with yourself. Take the time to recognize the emotional elements that play a role in your health and life.

The secret here is to understand how you handle your emotions. Are you in control of your emotions, or are your emotions in control of you? You may very well ask - so what? If you let your emotions control you then you may want to look at changing that behavior in order to give you a better chance at achieving what you want in your life. Balance in all areas is a major factor in our state of health and wellness.

What is really meant by our emotional nature? And where do our emotions really come from? Our emotions or feelings come from our heart. Are you able to feel, or are you like Mr. Spock from Star Trek, who is strictly logical and intellectual? Do you bury your feelings? Do you ignore your feelings and hope they will go away? Or are your emotions on your shirt sleeve and you don't think before you react? Remember to be in the best of health we need to be balanced.

We are multi-dimensional beings. We think and we feel, whether we like it or not. And if you claim you don't feel, I would challenge you - that is a feeling as well.

Emotions can go all over the map, from tears of joy to tears of despair. If we do not acknowledge and deal with our feelings and instead suppress them, all we are doing is stuffing them deep inside ourselves till they explode.

When they explode, we won't have any way to control that event. Think of a bomb going off. No one knows where the pieces will end up, it is uncontrolled chaos. That state of being uncontrolled is the same thing with our emotions. When we blow - watch out! The stuff will hit the fan and go everywhere.

Have you ever read about people who for no known reason suddenly seem to go crazy and lose it? How about the 'normal, average citizen', who goes on a shooting spree and then ends up killing himself as well? When the reporters interview his family or friends, no one can explain it. He was just an average Joe, then he blew up for no apparent reason, or was the reason building up inside of him all those weeks, months and years?

Sometimes the explosion can be internal,and the stress that builds up could lead to a heart attack, an ulcer, a ruptured appendix,a stroke or something equally painful.

Do you really want to take such chances with your health? Our body does the best it can to keep us healthy. When we ignore it, when we don't take care of it, or when we abuse it, our body does what it can to survive. So the choice is up to us - will we choose to be balanced, or will we choose not to be and accept the consequences?
