Do you often overreact when things don’t go your way and end up having to apologize later? Are you weighed down by all the negativity in the world, even if much of it doesn’t affect your own day-to-day life? And what about joyful occasions? Do you experience such a high when you’re happy that the comedown afterward is utterly devastating?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could probably benefit from hiring a holistic wellness coach. A compassionate professional can evaluate the state of your emotional health and then share effective remedies and actionable strategies for improving it. With the right approach, you should be able to regain control of your emotions, so you can still enjoy the full spectrum of feelings but you’re better able to cope with all the ups and downs that life throws your way.
To learn more about holistic healing and its effect on emotional health, read on. Our series on bettering your life starts with balancing your emotions because how you react to the world around you has a direct—and significant—impact on your physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
How Can a Holistic Wellness Coach Help Me Improve My Emotional Health?
Those with optimal emotional health neither bury their feelings nor wallow in them. Instead, they identify them, determine their underlying cause, and work through them. In other words, they don’t bottle anything up, but they don’t ruminate, either.
A holistic wellness coach can show you a number of ways to connect with your emotions, so you’re no longer ruled by them. Some of the most effective approaches include:
- Meditation therapy
- Pranic healing
- Energy clearing
- Spiritual therapy
Through these kinds of therapies, you’ll learn how to implement self-soothing techniques that aren’t self-destructive, like mindfulness. While each remedy is unique, they all aim to treat the person as a whole. That means they address the mind, body, and spirit. Enhancing the entirety of your being will inevitably contribute to your emotional health because you’ll feel more balanced and at peace. This, in turn, will allow you to experience—and ultimately process—your feelings without getting so overwhelmed that they cloud your judgment.
What Are the Benefits of Improving My Emotional Health Through Practices Like Meditation Therapy & Hypnosis?
There’s no shortage of research linking better emotional health to stronger immunity, lower rates of premature mortality, and faster recovery times. This is likely because poor emotional health lends to chronic stress, which triggers excessive cortisol. The primary “stress” hormone, cortisol suppresses the immune system, making you more vulnerable to illness.
Better physical health isn’t the only benefit of achieving optimal emotional health, though. While you cannot control what happens to you, developing practical coping skills will allow you to control how you respond to it. In other words, you won’t be inclined to act impulsively anymore. This can have an incredibly positive impact on both your personal relationships and professional interactions.
Using holistic remedies like meditation therapy and hypnosis to strengthen your emotional health can also help you overcome trauma. Becoming one with yourself facilitates the healing process, making it possible to grow as a person.
How Can I Protect My Emotional Health When Faced with Challenges That Threaten It?
If you want to lose weight to improve your physical health, do you stop eating well and exercising once you reach your goal? The answer, of course, is “no,” assuming you want to maintain your results. In much the same way, your emotional health requires ongoing care.
In addition to continuing the therapies that help you achieve balance in your life, you can retain control over your emotions by practicing a little self-care. That might include finding purpose, pursuing passions, journaling daily, and regularly socializing with friends and loved ones. Your holistic wellness coach can provide more specific strategies that are tailored to your particular circumstances.
