There’s an intimate link between your emotional health and your physical well-being (and vice versa), so take time to nurture both.
To be completely healthy, you should take care not only of your physical health but your emotional and spiritual health, too. If one is neglected, the other will suffer. Just like physical health, mental health can affect motivation, energy level, and other daily functioning tasks.
Physical Health – Physical wellness promotes proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning. There are many elements of physical wellness that all must be cared for together. Overall physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition, and mental well-being to keep your body in top condition.
Emotional Health – is an important part of overall health. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They are able to cope with life’s challenges. …Emotionally healthy people still feel stress, anger, and sadness. But they know how to manage their negative feelings.
Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This is one type of “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. For example, you might develop high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one.
On the other hand, when you improve your physical health, you’ll automatically also experience greater mental and emotional well-being.
Poor physical health can lead to an increased risk of developing mental health problems. Similarly, poor mental health can negatively impact on physical health, leading to an increased risk of some conditions. Total health depends on a healthy mind and body. Take time to nurture both.
