Maintaining strong emotional health is just one facet of healthy wellbeing. Unfortunately people think about it far too late in the grand scheme of things and tend to deal with their emotions onlyaftertrauma or tragedy has struck.
Dr. Mercolahas presented a series of steps to ensure varying levels on healthy wellbeing and emotional health is just one component. Here is is list to keep your emotional health in check:
A big part of your overall health is your happiness. Here are some ways you can boost your mental outlook just by changing your thoughts.
* Concentrate on happiness. * Focus on positive aspects. * Start each day with optimism. * Smile. * Change your inner dialogue. * Reverse thoughts. * Give yourself compliments. * Use positive words in your thoughts. * Put positive energy out there. * Expect the best. * Think of happy memories. * Be friendly to yourself and others.
When all of the above fails (and it won’t if you apply the steps), get a massage!
Laughter and generosity towards others are also wonderful ways to jumpstart your happiness. I think smiling is great as well--especially in greeting towards strangers on the road. It's incredible how a small gesture of kindness can really work to make you feel better.
