Your emotions and thoughts can impact your health. It is essential to identify and be cautious of their impact on one another and your relationships, behavior, and bodies. 

Remember that being emotionally healthy does not indicate you must always be happy.

It only suggests you are conscious of your emotions and can manage them, whether good or bad.

Emotionally healthy individuals still feel sadness, anger, and stress. Nonetheless, they understand how to facilitate their negative emotions.

Feelings can become unhealthy once they are distressing, continuous, irrational, excessive, or obstruct your regular life.

Scientists do not entirely realize the biological mechanisms at work.

However, they understand that negative emotions such as worry, sadness, and stress can trigger a spike in your body’s production of the hormone cortisol, which overpowers the immune system.

Apathy, pessimism, and depression impact your health in different ways.

For instance, low mood is associated with low dopamine and serotonin levels – the feel-good neurotransmitters within the brain. 

Take note that serotonin helps regulate pain perception. That could be why people with depression also experience pains and aches. 

Hence, suppressing your feelings isn’t great for your physical and mental health. It is like pressing on the brakes and accelerator simultaneously. It establishes an internal pressure cooker.

It will help if you let people close to you realize when something is bothering you. Bear in mind that keeping feelings of anger or sadness inside only adds to your stress.

5. Be Honest with Yourself.
