How Does Stress Affect Emotional Health Or Emotional Wellness?
Womens' unwavering sense of duty and responsibility toward family,
children, home and work can often make us unaware or even
dismissive of the extent of our stress levels and how this can
adversely impact on our emotional wellness.
However, too much stress over a sustained period of time can take
its toll on womens health and emotional wellbeing. Stress does not
discriminate! Stress affects health and can present major health
issues in women of every age, creed and origin.
This is all the more reason why women need to pay particular
attention to their emotional wellness, in as much as we do for
our physical fitness health.
We are all too aware that physical fitness and exercise can
help to prevent serious health issues in women. By the same
token, emotional fitness and exercise can equally prevent
emotional ill-health and even mental illness.
Please do not confuse mental illness with emotional health.
Though closely related, they mean different things.
Effecitively, if you take care of your emotional wellness health, you
stand a far better chance of preventing mental ill-health from
arising. (Incidentally, mental health refers to a state of
health, whereas mental illness refers to
What Is Emotional Health?
Emotional health or emotional wellbeing refers to our overall health, how we think,
feel and to our general attitude and coping strategies to life
events and challenges. It is also concerned with our ability
to value and manage our own emotions and to respond appropriately
to those of other people.
Emotional wellbeing and emotional intelligence is something we
learn as we are growing up.
Our capacity to grow emotionally
is shaped by our environment, our interactions, the skills we
learn along the way and the experiences we go through.
coupled with how we use these resources when confronted
with challenges in our lives is the foundation upon which each
individual's emotional wellness is built.
Since not all women, or individual life circumstance are equal,
the degree of emotional wellness will vary from poor, to optimal.
While not all women will be optimal 100% of the time, the aim
is to create and continue to build upon a solid emotional health
foundation that will serve us well 'when the going gets tough',
thus giving us a better chance of emerging stronger at the end of
any life crisis.
However, when we feel unable to cope, isolated or over burdened by
events, we are at the lower end of the emotional well-being scale
and will need support to help us to regain our perspective and
to move upward toward better emotional wellness balance.
