When it comes to health, emotions play a significant role. And how they are expressed in the physical body follows certain rules. So, along with strengthening our psychological resiliency, how can we handle our emotions for better health and freedom?
Psychological resiliency relates to a person's tolerance for emotions. It reflects how well a person handles different emotions and hence, situations that are emotional (coping).
Some of the factors that can weaken a person's resiliency include:
1. Traumatic events that are not processed effectively.
2. Emotions such as fear, uncertainty, despair, hopelessness.
3. Lack of self-esteem and constant anxiety or negative mind-chatter.
4. Being "on the fence", feeling trapped, or holding onto secrets.
5. Lack of a support system, especially early in life.
6. Email, texting, and constant "unbuffered" communication.
7. Nutrient imbalances and deficiencies.
8. Chronic dehydration.
9. Sedentary, indoor lifestyle.
10. Environmental chemicals and toxins.
