Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. This goes on to affect your productivity on the job, your relationship with others, your contribution and commitment to work and ultimately your overall output and results.
These and more have cost entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations millions of naira lost to reduced output and performance.
This is one type of “mind/body connection.”
When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you that something isn’t right. And so, to improve your performance, productivity, income and life, it is important that you pay attention to your emotional health.
Poor emotional health can weaken your body’s immune system. This makes you more likely to get colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times and just keeping those emotions inside can affect your physical health drastically.
What are some signs of low emotional health?
Back pain, change in appetite, chest pain, constipation, extreme tiredness, general aches and pains, headaches, high blood pressure, insomnia (trouble sleeping), light headedness, mood swings, upset stomach, weight gain or loss.
Know that, regardless the drugs or tablets you take, if these causes are not handled, they will affect your productivity, commitment, contribution, finances and business output.
So how do you gain control of your emotions?
1. Try to recognize your emotions
2. Express Your feelings in an appropriate way
3. Live a balanced lifestyle
4. Calm Your Mind and Body
5. Build Resilience
6. Seek Professional help.
Always know that your emotional system is a feedback mechanism and that you can use it for your best use.
