5 ways to manage emotional health
Today we continue discussing the areas within the first of the Major 8 ™ which is having “Great Health” I’ve shared thoughts about how when we think of good health we may think of eating right, exercising and all the ways to achieve and maintain great “physical” health; which is good but by only doing this we are neglecting much of our health; because as I’ve already mentioned: Health is not just physical but also includes emotional, mental, social and spiritual…
Earlier I’ve discussed the physical and a bit about the emotional aspects of health and now I’ll present a discussion on the mental part of our health.
I’ve described the physical and the emotional part of health and now I will move on in the area of “mental health”. I will continually remind my readers that I am not a “health professional” in the way of having certifications or special education or degrees of any kind; all is based on my observation and research with intent to help others understand the “Major 8 ™” and how it will help them achieve their desires. If you have specific situations which require professional help such as medical help, this author encourages you to seek the appropriate professionals to help you.
Mental and emotional health are so closely intertwined that many think they are the one and the same. Any time in life when you see two different words for two things which you may think mean the same thing, know that they are not; or you would not have two different words!
With this being said, when you visit: dictionary.com you’ll see a definition for mental health but when you place the words “emotional health” in the search bar, you get a search page and this message: You are seeing web results for emotional+health because there's not a match on Dictionary.com.
So, let’s ask Google, What is the difference between mental health and emotional health? By (go ahead and try this yourself) we’ll find some very interesting articles.
One such article shares a bit about both:

According to: http://www.foh.hhs.gov , here are five “general” ways to manage “emotional” health:
1) Express your feelings in appropriate ways. ...
2) Look for balance. ...
3) Develop resilience. ...
4) Calm your mind and body. ...
5) Take good care of yourself.
I can hear you say, “Great, easier said than done” and this is true. That’s why I’ve created this course which teaches how to live in balance by understanding the Major 8 ™. I encourage you to visit here often as we continue to discuss the remaining two areas of “great health” which are social and spiritual and then moving forward to the other seven major areas.
ASSIGNMENT: List the five areas above on a sheet of paper (or as I like to do; in a Word document) and then spend some time thinking on ways to do each. What might be "appropriate" ways to express your feelings: not someone else's feelings, but your feelings? Write out some action steps. Do them and evaluate what happened, tweak your action steps and repeat. Life is a great experiment!
Others who have read the above article also read this: What if I could show you 5 ways to looking (and feeling) 10 years younger? Would you think it requires: low fat diets, running in circles, or won’t work because of your age? Just drinking 12 ounces of good, clean water a day does wonders! And that is just the beginning of what this article shares!~
CAUTION: What if you are working out… too much? This article explains how you might just be doing this, plus other things many of us are doing “wrong”.
Do you want to lose 10, 25, 50, even 100 pounds or more? Then you will be doing the F4X Protocol with slight variations in movement style and nutrition. You will NOT be spending 4 hours a day doing cardio, or going out and trying to run a few miles. That will get you absolutely nowhere. The few simple variations in the F4X Protocol that we give you, plus the F4X LEAN Meal Plan, will get you exactly where you want to go.
NOTE: Some Old School, New Body readers only go through Phase 1. They find that they get "just enough" toned muscle and ALL the weight loss they desire, and they simply stop right there. Of course, they use F4X MAINTAIN to stay fit, trim, and healthy, but they do not progress to Phase 2 or Phase 3. It's completely up to you. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
