Are You Feeding the Negative Emotion?

This is an extremely important topic because many times we overlook how we are feeding the emotions we are feeling. So, if you or anyone you know is constantly feeling the blues, feeling overwhelmed or feeling empty, this post will be of value for you.

If you are constantly feeling any “negative” emotion, have you considered the fact that perhaps you are unknowingly feeding that “negative” emotion? The reason why I write the word negative in quotation marks is because I don’t think any emotion is negative. However, they can turn negative when we don’t learn and understand that emotion that we are feeling.

Any emotion that you are feeling is just feedback from your soul. It is your job to sit with it for a bit and understand it. Just like you would sit with your child and listen to him/her when he/she is feeling a certain way, it’s important that you do the same with yourself. This is a form of self-love and self-care. It is when we don’t do this that we start to neglect ourselves. When we neglect ourselves, those emotions that one would consider negative then turns negative,  which eventually then starts eating us up, affecting other areas of our life.

Our actions, apart from our thinking, also affect our emotions. So if you constantly find yourself feeling down, worried, anxious, etc., you have to consider the actions that you are taking. Are you feeding that emotion that you are feeling? If so, why?

You may wonder “how am I feeding this emotion if I don’t want to feel this way?!” Well, good question! We don’t intentionally do this but sometimes we do. The way you may be constantly feeding that emotion is if, say for example, you are feeling depressed and so you feel like not doing anything. The very act of not doing anything, just sitting there and not going out, not getting yourself dressed, is feeding that emotion. If you feel fear of doing something that you know would be very helpful for you and would move you forward, you giving into that fear is feeding that emotion.

I know it is easier said that done but it is necessary to be conscious of the actions you take and not feed that emotion. If you feel very down and you feel like not doing anything, do the opposite of what you are feeling. Do something because this will break what you are feeling. The more you keep feeding that emotion, the worse you will feel. This is when it becomes a cycle that seems difficult to break.

For your well-being, it is a must to be conscious of your actions and feelings. It is a must to break any emotion that can become negative for you. You break it by not feeding that emotion. You stop feeding it by doing the opposite of what you are feeling.

With today’s post, I would like to encourage you that if you are feeling the blues on a consistent basis, if you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, etc., look into your actions and don’t feed that emotion. As you do this, I promise you that you will start to feel better with time.

Are You Putting Your Health On Hold?

It’s interesting how I hear many times “I’m very hungry but I have to finish this task first” or how people on a constant basis sacrifice their sleep in order to get things done. I even hear from people that they have no time to workout. In my mind, it is no wonder that as a society we are getting sicker and sicker. With the exception of those who work at night because there are jobs where you have to be up all night but you can recuperate the sleep during the day, if you are one of those people doing any of the things I just said, then I ask you, why are you putting your health on hold? If you are doing any of these things, you are indeed putting your health on hold whether you realize it or not. Just like you wouldn’t put your car on hold when it’s low on gas by continuing to drive knowing that you are running out of gasoline, you don’t put your health on hold by not eating, not sleeping, not hydrating it right, not eating the right foods. Your body, your whole body, for that matter, needs to be taken care of as if you were taking care of the most precious thing that you have because indeed it is the most precious thing that you have.

When I say the whole body, I am referring to not just the physical aspect of your body, I’m also referring to the mental, spiritual and emotional aspect because when either one of these parts of you is suffering, it only takes one for all the other parts to be affected with time.

It’s important in life to have balance because it is that balance that helps you achieve your highest well-being. You can not achieve your highest when every other area of your life is good except for your emotional life, for example. It’s only a matter of time for the imbalance that you feel emotionally to start taking over the decisions you make, the things you attract, etc. It is important that you make it a point to strive for balance. I do understand that at times it can be a challenge but it is possible.

It’s important to take a look at all the areas of your life. If you are not happy with your life, ask yourself why. If you are not eating right, find out why. If you can’t seem to get yourself to exercise, find out why. If finding the answers to all these questions feels overwhelming, I suggest you hire a coach. A good coach helps you get from point A to point B. Now if you have serious emotional and mental concerns, by all means, get a good therapist or psychologist. There is nothing wrong with that. I have noticed that what many need is accountability when it comes to achieving their goals and that is one of the things that a good coach can help you with. The point is that you can not afford to be putting your health on hold any longer. Every day and every thing that you do matters and YOU matter as well. Always keep this last phrase in the forefront of your mind.
