Improving emotional health…..

by Rod Smith

The deepest recess of self, where soul, spirit, body, intellect collide - this is where you want!

Just as drinking lots of water is good for your physical health, there are similarly healthy exercises and activities that will significantly improve emotional health. Here are three suggestions. Even embracing one will lead to greater health:

1. Develop a private statement (20 words or fewer) of what you want out of life. While the initial statement will evolve over time, writing it will assist you to focus your efforts and ignore seductive attempts to sidetrack you from what you really want. It is not selfish to want. It is selfish to not want!
2. Clearly state who you are and what you want to the people closest to you. Defining yourself more and more clearly will not only make you more attractive (although this is not the motivating force) it will unlock your creative edge and give you an emotional lift.
3. Take full responsibility for your past, present, and future. Yes, you might have been dealt a tough hand – but your current response to your past is paramount in creating the health future you want. No one can build a healthy, attractive future while also harboring resentments about the past.
