A Healthy Body – Mind comprises of a healthy physique plus healthy thoughts. An Individual is termed in a healthy state if his Mind & Actions are in his control.
Our sense organs are the first recipient to our emotional Vitality. It is what One See (Eye), Hear
(Ear), Touch (Skin receptors), Taste (Tongue), Smell (Nose) goes up to the brain through various pathways and enables the individual to respond accordingly.
For example: If I see TRAUMA I would get scared and shocked , if I taste some good cuisine I would definitely be happy and excited to eat more. Therefore our sense organs receive signals from the outside World / Environment and transmit Neuro Receptors into our Brain which make us response alike. Our responses vary from a Shock to Joy depending upon signals received from the source outside. So our varying Mood is our emotions and the way we approach to the world is our External Appearance. That’s why Emotions play a vital role in shaping us to become a better Human Being.
EMOTIONS !!! It is responsible for complete wellness of an Individual from Inside to Outside. A healthy person is one who is in good harmony with his body and soul. Emotions have been described as consisting of a coordinated set of responses, which may include verbal, physiological, behavioural, and neural mechanisms.
How can emotions affect our health?
Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This is one type of “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. For example, you might develop high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one.
It has been stated and hence proved “Negative Emotions can increase the risk of Heart Diseases and Illness whereas Positive Emotions boost Longevity”. Anger, Anxiety and Depression can trigger Inflammation linked to Heart Disease. We all know from life experience that negative emotions like stress, anxiety, fear, depression, jealousy, impatience and anger each have tell – tale bodily warning signs attached to them. Recently, researchers have discovered that there is a strong link between negative emotional states, brain circuitry, inflammation, and an increased risk of heart disease. On contrary Positive Emotions like Peace, Joy, Courage, Self Esteem, Self Confidence, Enthusiasm brings Wellbeing and Harmony. In Positive state there is a strong connect between Mind & Body and physiologically all ailments are cured itself with just a Peace of Mind.
A study reaffirms that heart health goes beyond lifestyle choices like diet, exercise, being a non-smoker… Stress reduction and increasing positive emotions can reduce inflammation and the risk of heart disease. According to the NHS, sufferers of clinical depression may exhibit changes in appetite and weight, unexplained aches and pains, disturbed sleep or, if you are a woman, changes to your
menstrual cycle. Multiple studies have investigated the extent to which your nervous system, which
influences emotions, can predispose you to physical illnesses.
“The same parts of the brain that control the stress response … plays an important role in susceptibility and resistance to inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. And since it is these parts of the brain that also play a role in depression, we can begin to understand why it is that many patients with inflammatory diseases may also experience depression at different times in their lives.”
