At Yoli, we transform lives physically, emotionally, and financially. While many people focus solely on their physical transformation, your emotional health is just as important. That’s why today, we’re giving you a guide to taking care of yourself emotionally!
Take care of your physical health.
First things first: taking care of your physical health will help you take care of your emotional health. Your physical health and your emotional health are closely linked, and as one improves, the other tends to follow suit. All of the habits that help you work toward optimal health—eating a well-balanced diet, getting 7-9 hours of sleep each night, and reducing stress—will also help you take care of your emotional health.
Foster a healthy body image.
It’s also important to foster a healthy body image, especially if you’re working to lose weight. While losing weight can have a positive impact on your physical health, it should never come at the expense of your emotional health. Avoid using negativity to fuel your efforts to lose weight. Instead, treat yourself with kindness and focus on the positive changes you’re making. By thinking positively, you’ll be able to transform your life both physically and emotionally.
Exercising is one of the best things you can do for your emotional health. Research has shown that provided you do it in a healthy manner, exercise can improve your mood not just during exercise, but after you’ve completed your workout. We recommend exercising 30-45 minutes three to five times each week for both your physical and emotional health.
Talk it out.
Another way to improve your emotional health is to lean on your support system. Whether you’re going through a rough patch or just need to know they’re there for you, talking to your loved ones can have a powerful effect on your emotional health.
In addition to leaning on your support system, seek professional help if you need it. Therapy is valuable for a lot of people, so don’t be afraid to reach out if you need some extra help!
Taking care of your emotional health is an important part of taking care of your overall wellbeing, so we encourage you to make it a priority. For more information about transforming your life, subscribe to the blog and check out our Facebook page!
