Did you know that your emotions play a big part in how your body functions?

There is a strong connection between the mind and body. Managing internal stress is critical to good health. Emotions such as anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, resentment, anxiety, depression and many more have a direct impact on your physical health.

Have you ever noticed that your health deteriorated after a traumatic emotional event? The death of a loved one, loss of a house or business, divorce or any other life event, if not handled in a healthy way, can embed negative emotions anywhere in your body causing physical symptoms like pain, weight gain, high blood pressure or autoimmune conditions. The list of symptoms is endless and includes minor complaints as well as serious diseases.

And, the incident that caused the issue does not have to be a big one. It could be something as trivial as a minor argument with your spouse or hearing about a natural disaster on the news.

Start paying attention to the things that go through your head each day. Anything repeated is a cry from your subconscious for help. Any physical symptom is a cry from your body for help with a heart issue.
