2. Emotional Well-Being
There is only so much stress your mind can cope with before before the cracks start to appear, so it is essential to nurture your own emotional well-being. Most of us fail to tend to our emotional health with the same devotion we give to our physical well-being. Here are a few tips to help you stay emotionally healthy.
- Learn to love and accept yourself as you are. We all have lovable qualities; it's important to recognise and embrace your own. Focus on the positive aspects of your life and avoid measuring your worth by comparing yourself to others. As Mark Twain observed, "comparison is the death of joy".
- Train your mind to see the good in things. Your happiness and well-being is linked to the quality of your thoughts.
- Make sure you are getting 'me time.' In today's busy world, it can be hard to take time for ourselves. Ignoring our own well-being can lead to mental and physical health issues. It is very important to take time out for ourselves. Do not feel selfish about it. When we feel less stressed and better about ourselves, we can see a positive affect on the people around us. We are able to take better care of other relationships and this then enables and empowers us to perform better on a daily basis.
