It has never been more important to look after your emotional wellbeing and it is a hot topic at the moment with many people being concerned about their physical and mental wellbeing. It seems clear that a lot of physical and mental health problems stem from an emotional imbalance and really when you think about it and study it more closely, everything is affected by your emotions.
In this article from Becoming Aware, based in Eastbourne with clients throughout Sussex, we look at what defines emotional wellbeing and how important it is to find a balance. We look at how you can support your emotional wellbeing and key signs that this is out of balance.
This concerns your overall health and wellbeing and if you are emotionally healthy, you will be more in control of your feelings, your thoughts and the things that you do. You will be able to cope with life’s challenges and bounce back from any setbacks that you may encounter. It doesn’t mean that you won’t feel stress, anxiety, anger or sadness, but you will be better able to manage these feelings and overcome them more quickly.
Signs that your emotional wellbeing is out of balance:
· Lack of energy and continually feeling tired
· Difficulty in concentrating and making decisions
· Feeling angry, impatient and irritable
· Feeling sad continually
· Nervousness and feeling anxious and stressed
· Worrying excessively and avoiding situations
Emotional balance is the ability of the mind and body to maintain equilibrium and to be flexible when faced with challenges and change. Emotional balance promotes physical and mental health, and is a prerequisite for personal wellbeing and growth. It’s important to strive for a balance, including work, play and time spent with the family and making time for the things that you enjoy.
Lifestyle changes that can make a difference
· Eat regularly and have breakfast
· Drink lots of water
· Keep physically active
· Don’t abuse alcohol and limit consumption
· Take time out and relax
· Do things you enjoy
· Seek help from friends and connect with others
· Talk things through
· Learn relaxation methods
· Seek professional help to release the emotional blockages
To improve emotional wellbeing, it’s important to spot the warning signs.
Looking after your emotional wellbeing is really important. Be aware of your emotions and reactions and work out what the triggers are that make you feel sad, angry or frustrated.
