Emotional fitness can be compared with physical fitness in many ways, including the ability to learn fitness in areas we are not currently fit in.
Emotions have physical manifestations and they are governed by physical laws. Every action has an opposite reaction. What goes up must come down.
Our facial expressions help us show our feelings and improve communication, both of which contribute to emotional fitness.
Love is a complex emotion which helps bring people together. This ranges from the lust of a wedded couple to the belongingness of a Church congregation.
When a person is sad their body is telling them to relax and let go of tensions in the mind and body. Sadness is letting go.
Humans are a naturally aggressive species. Emotionally fit people are those who have learned to channel their anger.
Happiness is something that we all seek. The emotion is associated with dopamine and endorphins.
Relaxation is a skill and we can do exercises to develop that skill and condition ourselves to be relaxed in a wide variety of situations
Your posture, or the way you use your body affects your behaviour, including the way you think, feel and relate to other people. Bodywork can improve this.
