10 Tips for Emotional Health and Well-being

Updated on August 6, 2016

Our emotions can get the best of us sometimes, our feelings may often get in the way of our logical thinking. Some people are an emotional wreck, and they need treatment for their emotions before it gets worse. Most people are emotional about their marriage relationships. We have to know how to manage relationships that makes us an emotional wreck.

All relationships need balance, you can't do too much of one thing, or not enough of another thing. Balance is really needed in any relationship, especially if you are to the point of begging someone to keep you company. If you're in a relationship and you are actually being really needy, then your emotions might need some attention. No one can be with one person as a means of need and not share their time with others as well; this is how a person may get out of balance.

Many people hold in their emotions and refuse to talk them out, but they will act out their emotions, which is a bad idea. People that are hurt may sometimes act out with hurt to other people. It's a good idea to communicate with someone you trust to vent out feelings. Because holding in the feelings will make a person's emotional health worse. It's like when you shake a soda bottle and the pressure is inside, the bottle will need to release and spill over, or settle down.

Tips for Emotional Health and Well-being

Good Emotional Health

  1. Make goals for your future - make a vision list or a vision poster and began to act toward your goals daily. Face your fears to make you stronger to reach your goals in a quicker time.

  2. Start a new hobby - having 2 or more hobbies will keep your emotions healthy.

  3. Getting 8 or more hours of sleep at night - will help with good emotion health. And not sleeping too much will also help with good emotional health; it's all about balancing your life.

  4. Do little positive things that make you happy - such as eating your favorite dessert and foods. And being around positive people that you trust is a good idea; good company is good for your emotional well-being. Watch comedy movies and shows to keep you in the mood of laughter.

  5. Avoid confrontations - stay away from debates and arguments. Screaming and hollering is not smart for maintaining good emotional health. Find solutions, work it out and then let it go.

  6. Don't focus on a hurtful past - No one can change the past, it's a waste of energy to hold on and suppress the thoughts a hurtful past. And avoiding crying every day, vent out your concerns by communicating with people that you trust.

  7. Engage into the positive things in your life - things that are helping you to grow mentally, emotionally, and Spiritually.

  8. Say positive affirmations to yourself - Our minds are talking to us all the time, avoid saying things of fear to yourself. But rather speak positive things to yourself aloud or in your mind. Speak words of encouragement to yourself in the mirror and in your mind; this is positive affirmations. Many people are their own worse critics, but we have to twist those thoughts for our own good mental health.

  9. Make smart choices in life - The choices we make today will determine our future, rather its good choices or bad choices.

  10. Release tension - with 10- 60 minutes of daily physical exercises, dancing to positive music, avoid listening to heartbreak songs but if you need to listen to it a few times for 2 days and then let it go. Also spend time with people that have your best interest at heart, sing along to praise and worship songs to our God in Heaven. Cry when you need to cry; and stop worrying, let go and let God.

If you feel that your emotions are borderline, seek Christian counseling in your local area. Some people are a couple of steps away from having an emotional breakdown. But if we avoid the stress in our lives and take care of our emotional health, we can have balance and permanent joy in our lives.

Are you guiding your emotions in a positive way?

      That's right Ms Dora, someone listening to a person vent is talk-therapy, and it can help tremendously. Everyone need someone they can vent to, and get useful positive advice in return. Thanks

      "It's a good idea to communicate with someone you trust to vent out feelings." Ann, I couldn't agree more. Having that someone who will listen to a vent can be the difference between sanity and insanity. Thanks for the good suggestions for maintaining mental health.
