7 things emotionally successful people do

Emotional health is important and closely tied to your physical health.  To me, emotional health isn’t about being a happy or optimistic person, it’s more involved than that.  And I don’t think anyone can always be happy all the time, because life happens and throws challenges at us pretty constantly.

Last night as I visited with a friend, I surprised myself that I was pretty open about my emotional health over my lifetime.  As I look back, I realized that I’ve really had some tough periods where I needed to really muster up strength to regain and keep emotionally healthy.  I’m grateful that I have learned many different life skills that help get me back on track to enjoy life when I have those down periods.

Here is an interesting article by Dr. Mercola that I enjoyed reading and want to share with you.  It’s called 7 Things Emotionally Successful People Do Differently.

In short, here are the 7 things:

  1. Take control of your life
  2. Be flexible
  3. Learn from your mistakes
  4. Create specific goals
  5. Accept yourself
  6. Keep your stress in check
  7. Let the little things slide

See where emotion is felt in your body:

The article goes on to talk about the health benefits of happiness,  emotion and your body, Emotional Free Technique (EFT) and more strategies for happiness.

So I invite you to have a read of this article – it’s worthwhile!
