There is so much happening in the world today that it’s driving many people into a high emotional state. Unfortunately some of those people have been so emotional for so long that it’s worked them up to violence!
This high emotional state is not good for your health. It creates not just mental, but also physical stress on the body. If you don’t take a break from focusing on what’s upsetting you, your body literally goes into a fight or flight response resulting in an increased use of adrenaline and irrational behavior. It’s only a matter of time before your organs suffer the consequences and it starts effecting your health.
I seem to remember a cartoon that we play for our children. A young woman lives in what she believes is a horrific situation and her and everyone around her is under significant stress. This young girl finally comes to the realization that all she needs to do is just “let it go” to find her happier side and control her emotions to live a better life.
Why can’t we all learn a lesson from what we teach our children and focus on making the world a better place for us and the people around us? It’s not only to improve our circumstances but also create a healthier life for ourselves, our friends and our families.
