What is emotional health and what’s the connection with our heart?
Emotional health is the ability to be resilient to life’s changes and being able to enjoy the height of our hearts in joy as well as feeling the depths of the heart in despair or grief.
By feeling all we can inside our hearts, we make our hearts into the sacred book. Our hearts are the center of our physical and emotional body. Emotional health is about being mindful and non-judgmental about all emotions that come up for us.
Emotionally healthy people have techniques and strategies to deal with the ups and downs of emotional living. You must pay attention to your own well-being and you must be resilient in the face of life’s challenges. This will give you emotional health.
Asking what is emotional health is asking about self-acceptance and self-knowledge. Emotional health comes from a harmony between our hearts and minds.
To live life fully we all must experience the full range of emotions and be able to be with them and then release them.
Studies show that those people who have emotional health have stronger immune systems and are less susceptible to heart problems and other health issues.
Dr. Dean Ornish, a world expert in heart health, talks about the importance of Intimacy to heart health. Intimacy is linked to emotional health.
The emotion of anger is linked to heart disease so it’s important to have emotional health and be able to process anger and other strong emotions.
Emotions can show up in any part of our bodies and we can learn to recognize the physical sensations associated with these emotions. This is what emotional intelligence is about.
The Heart of Emotion
The heart is the center of our emotional body. And the heartbeat can tell you a great deal about your emotions.
Listening to the heartbeat or pulse is an ancient practice. It has been used in India in heart meditation practices for a long time.
In China, Doctors listen to the pulse of the patient and can learn much about the state of the body from the pulse.
Try this practice:
- Listen to your heartbeat or contact a pulse point on your writs or neck with two fingers.
- Now think of people or situations in your life, and notice that the beat changes. This tells you what relationships or situations are important and need your attention.
- It is comforting to listen to our heartbeat. It is a simple and natural way to reduce anxiety and fear.
