Welcome back to Balanced Living with Dr Shola!
This week is about another pillar of balance, Emotional Wellness. Here are 10 quick tips to improve your emotional health:
1. Realize that your emotions are to serve you, not rule you.
2. Own, accept and manage your emotions for your benefit.
3. Temper your emotions by not over reacting to minor things.
4. If you ever feel as though you are getting out of control, de escalate or remove yourself from the situation if possible. If not possible, pause for some seconds before you do the next thing.
5. Do not give others control over your emotional state
6. For whatever reasons, there will be people who constantly rub you up the wrong way. You would do best to have a conversation with them and work on the issues. If this is not possible, avoidance may be the only way.
7. Associate with positive people. Negative people are an emotional energy drain.
8. Be happy now, not when…(you get the wife, the car, the house, the new job)
9. Love yourself. Wherever you go, there you are. Learn to love yourself despite your flaws.
10.Relax! Do not let one negative interaction, or five minutes of “crazy” ruin your entire day.
