I was researching and offering quotes from experts and authors before I wrote the paper.
They fall out over how to cure physical angst. Emotions affect physical health. I looked at books and online, but found that many specialists disagreed about how to deal with anxiety in the body.
I know what I know. New Age theories about which people can’t agree are backed by science and experience. I realized that I have a lot of real-life data to share. As someone interested in health and the way feelings influence well-being, I have learned a lot from my former days as a counselor.
Your blood flow changes when you are stressed. Anger increases blood flow in the brain. You have a physical response when you experience an emotion.
The flow of blood in your body is likely to be altered by anxiety. According to Dr. Michael Roizen, blood flow is reduced in certain areas. The Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that stress was linked to reduced blood flow to the heart and other vital organs. People who had a lot of stress had more periods of insufficient blood flow to the heart, which led to a higher risk of heart attacks and abnormal heart rhythms.
Chronic stress is not built into you. Life threatening events that cause severe anxiety are supposed to be over quickly. How about long-term stress?
You are likely to experience stress that lasts for days, weeks, months, or even years these days. There is a problem because of the knowledge stress that changes optimal functioning by restricting blood to the heart and other organs and increasing it elsewhere. If not addressed, stress can kill. Humans used to be terrified by vicious, hungry creatures who would kill them or run away if they tried to eat them. Either way, it would be over soon.
It would be one thing if it were just blood flow that changed when you were stressed. It is not. Emotions affect your body.
You will take medication if you don’t know what’s causing it. Stress-related illnesses need to be acknowledged, although not all illnesses stem from emotions. You can see and feel them if you register them physically.
The rest of your body is affected by each emotion. The results can lead to serious health issues, even if they don’t kill you. Most of the time, they result in chronic pains.
I once counseled a woman who was brought up to think that expressing anger was unforgivable. She came to me when her marriage was in trouble. The case study is about something.
I didn’t look for a connection between her physical ailments and what was happening. I was new to practicing and intent on following the guidelines that I had been taught rather than anything else. She saw big time in her husband’s actions because of what she couldn’t express. She was angry as well as afraid, but she used her rage to her advantage.
Her private life was calm. She had physical pain when it raged like a storm. Conventional medical treatment did not help her. My client’s physical distress was always accompanied by her “bad patches” in her marriage.
I discovered that anger in the jaw can affect oral health. Some people grind their teeth at night due to anger, but rage makes them tighten their jaw at the moment it happened. It did not cure the problem because it could not. She had a build-up of emotional tension. They said that she needed to express her feelings quickly and that she needed to change her mindset.
You might develop a problem if it becomes sore. Any part of your body where tension is held regularly is the same. Imagine for a moment that you were holding tension in your hand all day long and then doing it again and again. What would it feel like to have a hand? What would be its condition?
Acknowledgment. In my client’s case, the cure was to embrace positive change and learn to express her emotions when she felt them. She was taught how to use her emotions to help her body. Acknowledgment is the first step in the process.
You are having nightmares because of the situation you face at work. You can’t change something that you don’t know about. When someone you don’t want to deal with is a pain in the neck, there is a need to identify it.
Something is eating away at you, so a wound isn’t healing as fast as it should. You have become mentally inflexible, so your back feels like it is made of stiff material.
When you have a huge family argument, you lose your job, or you get cancer, you think you kicked it to the curb. Stressful events in your life can cause your heart problem.
Is it possible that an ongoing ailment could be a symptom of emotions expressed by your body? Even if you are unsure, acknowledge the possibility. Stay open- minded. Not all physical ailments and disease are caused by emotional withholding, but many are, and even more get worse due to stress even when they have genetic origins.
Positive change is the next thing to do after noting a problem and why it might occur. If you can. Next step.
As they happen, express your emotions. People must endure difficult times for various reasons. Maybe the timing is off, or finances and support makes a difference. You can still improve your physical and mental condition if you live with a chronic difficulty.
If you do something with them, they won’t get stuck. Emotions will create a physical reaction if you express them at once or not. It is an innate survival mechanism.
Don’t wait until your dance class on Friday to let off steam if you’re angry on Monday. Your muscles, shoulders, neck, back, and jaw are where your emotions might have started. As soon as possible, engage in helpful behaviors.
You don’t have to shout and scream at someone who upsets you. If you want to improve communication, you might want to write your feelings in a journal, talk to a trusted friend or relative, and let tension go in other ways. Enhancing physical activity helps too.
I don’t like using the terms positive and negative, but we know what we mean, so I will. Positive emotions can work for you.
Positive emotions such as peace, relaxation, joy, love, or gratitude can have a positive impact on your body. They can act as release mechanisms and help heal tension. All emotions are positive as they help us in some way. The difference is what we do with them.
Love and joy can be connected. Think of someone you love or a pet that you don’t worry about. If you still love your ex, focus on someone else. Loving feelings boosted.
Place one hand over your heart while taking deep, slow breaths. As you think of the person or pet you love, imagine breathing into your heart. You can create heart resonance for a few minutes. Someone who fills your heart with joy instead of making you want to break it, or who makes you want to dance rather than just look at you.
There is a video that will help you breathe in a healing way for ten minutes. Here is an exercise provided by a nurse educator. When you want to increase positive emotions and release stress, join in.
If you were to engage in 10 minutes of breathing a day for 8 weeks, you would retrain your nervous system to increase your heart rate variability. There are many benefits, including reduced blood pressure, lowered anxiety and depression, and improvement in asthma, COPD, Fibromyalgia, and more. The makers of the video say this about breathing.
Stress is not supposed to make you ill. It is a reaction to what is happening in your environment. When you can, listen to the message and change the conditions when you can. If you increase positive emotions and reduce those that damage you, your well-being will grow.
