How Is Your Emotional Fitness?

How Is Your Emotional Fitness?

Article by Susan Gianevsky

We thought 2020 was the worst year we had experienced however, 2021 seems to be even worse with more lockdowns, loss of jobs and little to look forward to. This does take its toll and even the strongest of us need some reprieve…  

I have always believed sharing your day with  someone can make you feel better. It doesn’t cost  anything to make an effort and say hello, so for this  R U OK Day, greet someone and ask them how they are. 

More than ever before I believe we need to become more mindful of our neighbours, people walking past us in our neighbourhoods, at the stores we visit as we  are all feeling uncertainty during this time. 

I recommend spending a few moments checking in with people around us is a great way to let them know  you can see them, hear them and care for them may  in turn offer some of the support they may need.  

Key signs of emotional stress include: issues with sleeping or oversleeping, racing thoughts and  constant worry, anger, irritability, restlessness, feeling  overwhelmed, unmotivated, mood changes, low  energy and lack of motivation.  

Although information on the importance of mental  and emotional wellbeing is improving, people may  still feel a stigma and choose to not address their  emotional wellbeing needs openly. If you are feeling  this way, talk to your health professional or someone  you trust about receiving help. 

Our emotional and mental health is always very important but even more so at this time when our  daily routine has changed greatly. There are  inconsistencies in our lives and we crave normality. This all plays havoc with our emotional balance. 

Our emotions are the way we handle our life and if you have been feeling frustrated, confused and even angry just know you are not alone. 

My top tips for staying OK: 

✔ Cut back on social media 

✔ When reading articles, ensure the  information is from a credible source  

✔ Have a hand sanitizer in a few spots in  your home or bag 

✔ Create a routine for yourself that keeps you busy 

✔ Stay connected with your family & friends

✔ Understand the benefits of mindfulness -  download meditation apps or join a group  online 

✔ Breathe, breathe, breathe – deep breathing is a great and easy way to  improve stress and mild anxiety 

✔ Eat wholesome, nutritious foods

✔ Minimise caffeine  

✔ Include the Martin & Pleasance Rest&Quiet formulas as part of your daily  routine. With formulas for Calm, Sleep  and Focus, they remedies are traditionally  used in Bach Flower Remedies to calm the  mind, and reduce stress and mild anxiety.
