How emotions affect our body

Our body is multifaceted, and the emotions we experience play a significant role in maintaining its optimal state.

Emotions play a huge role in our health, behavior and relationships, because the body reacts to what we feel. That’s why it’s important to understand our feelings, why we experience them, and to be aware of the impact they can have on our lives. Here are a few emotions that can positively or negatively affect our health.

Anger

Negative feelings such as anger can cause blood pressure to rise because they cause the adrenal glands to produce more stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. On the other hand, if anger is expressed and managed properly, it can be a useful emotion that inspires you to make positive changes.

How to control it:

  • Track your anger outbursts
  • Take yoga or meditation lessons
  • Physical activity
  • Stress

Stress is an emotion that can have a negative impact on memory and the ability to concentrate if you do not know how to manage it. This feeling of being unable to resist certain specific demands can make us irritable and tired. If stress is expressed correctly, it can become a motivator and help a person respond to danger.

How to control it:

  • Reduce your caffeine intake
  • Stick to a balanced diet
  • Organize your schedule
  • Share your problems and feelings with someone close to you
  • Grief

Grief is a natural reaction that occurs when something is taken away from you. This feeling increases inflammation and can cause new health problems. The body fights the immune system and can change the heart muscle, causing “broken heart syndrome”. Emotional pain from grief can cause physical pain and can lead to various digestive problems.

How to control it:

  • Understand your pain
  • Ask for support from your loved ones
  • Be careful
  • Spend time in nature
