Human emotions are powerful and can effect the physical body positively or negatively. When our emotions are balanced toward the positive; we feel a sense of peace, the body relaxes and daily functioning can be joyful and productive. However when we experience negative emotions that linger, it can cause great distress, suffering and be physically draining. The negative imbalance can cause a loss of joy, happiness and depression may set it.
Example: You can challenge and exercise your mind by choosing what thoughts you tend to dwell on. You can retrain pathways in the brain to focus on daily thoughts which are connected to experienced emotions. Emotional balance can help increase and maintain overall healthy functioning.
Healthy Choice: I will create a Vision board for myself and pin up positive goals. I can place it where it’s visible so that my thoughts will be on my goals at least once per day. I will cognitively think about what thoughts I tend to allow in and decide my daily focus. I know my mind is a Battlefield and I choose to WIN. I will commit to searching scriptures, meditation time, and filling my mind with good and purposeful thoughts.
Diet Tip: Insufficient levels of Vitamin D can lead to mood swings, depression, and fatigue. You may consider incorporating vitamins & supplements in your diet plan.
