How To Establish A Healthy Emotional Life

Life is all about balance. It’s about keeping our physical body, our emotional body, our spiritual body, and our mind all in balance.  Sometimes we forget about the emotional side of life.  However, we need to remember that this area needs to be kept in tip top shape just as much as every other.

When you fail to process your emotions and experiences, you create toxins of another sort. Emotional toxins manifest as anxiety, depression, sadness, hopelessness, anger, rage, impatience, or guilt. Over time, emotional toxins build up, and if you don’t clear them regularly they morph into physical symptoms and ultimately disease. Much like exercise helps maintain balance in the physical body, the following tools can be used to keep your emotions in check.

Balancing The Brain And The Power Of Choice

Today we continue on with our theme of the brain.  This is the story of a neuroanatomist who experienced a severe haemorrhage of the left brain and will be particularly interesting for those of you who are a little spiritually inclined.  During her eight years of being unable to walk, talk, read or write, she experienced purely right brain living. It’s really interesting to hear her scientific take on what many people would consider a very spiritual experience.

The Link Between Eating Well And Mental Health

There are more and more studies coming out showing that food can be connected to mental illness.

In a 2011 analysis of more than 5,000 Norwegians, Michael Berk, a professor of psychiatry at the Deakin University School of Medicine in Australia, and his collaborators found lower rates of depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder among those who consumed a traditional diet of meat and vegetables than among people who followed a modern diet heavy with processed and fast foods—or even a health-food diet of tofu and salads.

And this trend is not at all surprising when we consider that we are also starting to consider our stomach as our second brain.

Additionally, our brain is a complex organism that consumes around 400 calories a day. An American Psychiatrist, Dr Ramsey, explains that one of the biggest benefits of eating clean is for the healthy function of our brain. We can grow stronger, more ‘resilient’ brains by feeding it the right nutrients.

The Innovation of Loneliness

Ah, the joys of social media. Is it making our life better or worse? The discussion continues….

While our focus is shifting towards individual achievements over community, more and more people are feeling lonely. They feel vulnerable opening up to others for warm, friendly, heart-to-heart conversations. Then, along comes social media… As people share and chat from islands of isolation, filtering and massaging information, they are undermining the genuine credibility of conversation. Bits and pieces of tweets, posts and chats aren’t allowing people either to open up or understand others. Are these online connections actually helping with loneliness, or they are making it worse? Could this social media activity be chipping away at your quiet time as well, when you could think and reflect? Learn more in this fast-pace, animated video based on the work of Sherry Turkle and Dr. Yair Amichal-Hamburger.

Austerity vs Abundance

This story is about a world waking up, a world evolving, and a new way of seeing things. I liked it, and I am pretty sure you will too. I’ve included a little quote from the story below, and if you want to read more then check out Austerity vs Abundance.

Environmentalism is giving way to something bigger and bolder. We are not just asking people not to drive anymore. Being ecological is about positive actions that nurture abundance, such as growing copious vegetables and giving them to the old lady who lives alone down the street. That builds community and reduces our need to rely on corporate food. And in being abundant ourselves, might we not fall in step with our mysterious universe – so perfectly poised for life – and contribute to the evolutionary destiny of our planet?
