How to Survive Emotional Sweeps and Thrive
By Sandy Schroeder
Yes, doctors say it is true that you may feel a physical impact when you are happy, sad or mad. The impact of the emotions changes body chemistry.
Consider how you feel when you reach out to help someone, contrasted with how you feel when you are overwhelmed with sad or mad thoughts.
Emotions Move Energy Through the Body
Researchers say an energy move occurs inside the body when emotions change. Positive emotions flood the body with good vibes that create waves of relaxation. Anger, anxiety or frustration produce tension that hits the limbs, jaw, chest or stomach. If the negativity continues, it can erode health. If you are depressed, neurotransmitters can send impulses to the gut and the brain. Over time, stress can set the stage for heart disease. Find ways to stay positive and healthy.
Fight Back with Positive Emotions
Harvard Health tells us how positive emotions can produce physical healing.
Use music therapy to feel good - Researchers have shown how a person's favorite music can ease depression and anxiety just as effectively as a prescription.
A good mood helps heart attack recovery - Happiness generates endorphins with a morphine-like impact that reduces heart rate, anxiety and blood pressure. I saw this play out with my mother's heart attack. She became the star pupil in her hospital rehabilitation program. When she went home, she put herself, and my dad, on a low cholesterol diet and they worked their way up to walking five miles every evening. Exercise helped their mood, and improved their health, along with a good diet, as they savored a long and happy retirement.
Ease pain with a positive mood - Researchers have found mood boosters can also be used to ease chronic pain.
