Mental Healthy Living as well as Physical Healthy Living
I came across an article on Healthy Living by J Montana I had to share with the viewers of my Weight Loss blog because I believe that mental health is just as important as physical health.
When we are emotionally healthy, evoking positive emotions for reassurance has a positive outcome. Wishing good health for a loved one and acknowledging concern affects their behavior. For instance, warranting empathy by offering to pray for someone triggers a positive coping mechanism. However, when we give or receive negative emotional responses, the outcomes have counter-evidential effects. When we receive, a negative impulsive counter-blow, such as an insult, our brains create a notable imprint of the occasions. Whether or not we engage in an exchange of insults, the brain notes the negativity that we encountered. This process helps us stave off future negative emotional engagements.
Most of us can recognize emotional negativity. When we experience negative sympathies from a person, we learn to avoid the person in the future. Still, there are those people in our lives that get under our skin. We may have cast them out of lives to become healthier. Albeit, sometimes we wish they would catch a 24-hour stomach ailment that results in occasional underwear changes. We keep our thoughts to ourselves to keep from evoking negative responses in our lives. However, is this healthy? It may be unhealthy to keep our emotions bottled up instead of expressing how the person hurt us. Engaging in ardent negativity commonly promotes counter-productive behavior.
This was just some of what the article discussed, but I believe it was worth sharing with you. I would love to hear your comments about it.
