If you are serious about creating a healthy life where you are in control of not only your body, but your mind as well, then there comes a time where you are going to need to invest in yourself and get some help. While many assume that a doctor or nutritionist can be the best fit for your needs, some are now realizing the importance of the mind/body connection and how your emotions affect your health.
In a recent post from familydoctor.com it states that:
“People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships.
However, many things that happen in your life can disrupt your emotional health. These can lead to strong feelings of sadness, stress, or anxiety. Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This is one type of “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. For example, you might develop high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one.”
Simply put, your emotional wellbeing plays a vital role on all other areas of your life. This is why many individuals are now looking to find a life coach who can help them not only with their emotions, but with their goals as well.
Yes, it is important that you learn how to address negative emotions when they come up so that they don’t get the best of you. But it is also vital that you feel as though your life is moving forward and that you are accomplishing your goals. This type of momentum in your life will give you a great feeling that cannot be replaced by any other exterior experience.
The great motivational speaker Tony Robbins always talks about how one of the most important factors for feeling good about yourself is the idea of “progress” and that you are always evolving in some way. This type of experience will give you the sense that you are alive and that by having this, your life will be filled with meaning and purpose.
It is quite common for those who suffer from depression lack a sense of purpose which is why so many people are now looking to find a life coach who can guide them along their life journey.
