5 Tips For Healthy Emotions

We all have emotions and in the past year, we have learned that emotional health is super important in how we handle everyday challenges. In this blog post, I will be sharing 5 Tips for Healthy Emotions.

Tip 1: Start Your Day with Movement and Meditation

When I say movement, I mean whatever feels good to YOUR body. I start my day with stretching and either cardio or strength training depending on the day. In the warmer months, I may choose a 3-mile walk around our sub-division, or it might be a light yoga workout on a Sunday morning, but I always get in some form of movement to loosen joints, get the blood moving, and flowing from head to toe. I used to shy away from the word, “meditation” because as a Christ-follower when someone said meditation, I immediately thought of chanting mantras and emptying my thoughts which is not what I am all about. Then a friend reminded me that in Joshua 1:8, God’s word tells us to, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. In Psalms 1:2, God’s words say, “But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night.” So my morning is not complete without prayer time with my God and Savior Jesus Christ and meditating on His word to guide my day.

Tip 2: Connect with People

What does that even mean? As a Relationship builder, I LOVE connecting with people, over coffee, over Zoom, over the phone, in person, wherever, I LOVE finding out how others are doing. It gives me life, but if that’s not you, then it’s important for you to make a conscious effort to connect with your people however YOU like to do it. Even a 5-minute conversation can lift our spirits and remind us we have a lot to be thankful for. When you are connecting with others, ask questions about how THEY are doing. That helps us get out of ourselves and imagine what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes.

Tip 3: Set a New Goal For Yourself, but Be Kind to Yourself

Goals are great, but if we are putting too much pressure on ourselves, then they can become harmful to our emotional health. It’s great to want to try new things or jump-start something you are already doing, but be kind to yourself and don’t compare your journey with someone else’s. We are looking to uplift ourselves, not put ourselves down.

Tip 4: Give to Others

When we are going through a tough time, it’s best to get out of our own box and help someone in need. Even if it’s giving $5.00 to a worthy cause, you are still doing something to uplift your emotions. As we said before, we can always say 1 thing we are thankful for each day and then turn around and bless someone’s else life and you will watch your emotions turn around in a matter of minutes. Giving to others is one of those things that not only blesses the receiver but the giver as well. Pay for someone’s coffee who is behind you in the drive-thru line, or let someone go ahead of you in the grocery store line because they only have a few things. Whatever it is, give yourself a pat on the back and say, “Good Job”!!

Tip 5: Use Essential Oils for Emotional Health

Essential oils are the fastest way to affect our mood. Through our sense of smell, aromatic molecules have direct access to the limbic area of our brain. The limbic system is responsible for our behavioral and emotional responses. Since we technically have 3 brains, that’s right we do, we must feed all 3 as they are all connected. There’s our “Mind” which directs over 90% of our behavior, our “Heart”, which is our intuition, and our “Gut” where 90% of our serotonin is produced. That’s why when we are upset, our stomach starts hurting. There are several oils to help with balancing our emotions.

  1. Peace Reassuring Blend– Made to combat feelings of anxiousness and insecurity

  2. Motivate – When we need a gentle kick in the pants.

  3. Cheer – When we are disinterested, bored, or somber

  4. Passion – When we are discontented

  5. Forgive – When we are angry, bitter, ashamed, or sad

  6. Console – When we are worried, fearful, hurt, or grieving

There’s so many other we can try too, like Balance, Elevation, Citrus Bliss or Adaptiv.
