Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans it is the ability of individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social challenges.
We all know it’s way easier to send a simple thumbs-up emoji via text than express to a friend or partner our actual feelings. While keeping your emotions in check may seem like a better option at times, it could be doing you a major mental disservice. According to Dr. Z, acknowledging and expressing your feelings is crucial for building what’s known as emotional intelligence.
She also points out it’s important to get specific about how you feel. So when you say you’re mad—are you actually angry or frustrated? Hurt or annoyed? According to Dr. Z, we’re often limited by the vocabulary we use, but being able to “differentiate it and really understand the root of the emotion gives you more insight, which allows you to shift your reaction based on what you’re really feeling.”
Each of these steps is aimed at bringing clarity to the root of your problem, which will help you get back on your feet as soon and healthy as possible.
