“It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Your Emotional Well Being
By Mary Anne Winslow
Your emotional health and well being is the most important part of your health. If you wre not emotionally happy, it effects all different parts of your body and you cannot be healthy. Here are some tips to have a truly healthy lifestyle.
Emotional wellbeing- your ability to recognize your feelings and being able to express them appropriately.
Drugs-drugs affect the way someone acts and thinks so this is an important factor on well-being. Their physical health wont be very good as there could be damage to the liver or the lungs. A positive affect from drugs would be if you had a condition like diabetes the drugs help to keep you from illness. A negative affect from drugs would be if you were taking an illegal drug like ecstasy that is harming your body and you don’t need it. Intellectual well-being wouldn’t be good as drugs affect the way your mind works and emotional well-being as drugs make you depressed. The positive view is you could be more sociable.
Diet- this could affect your emotional well being as you can’t have your normal comfort foods and it may affect your social wellbeing if everybody around you is eating a lot and your not. The positive affects would be on your physical well being as you’d feel healthier and you would be much healthier. It may also be positive on your emotional wellbeing as you are feeling healthier and can also be good on your social wellbeing as you won’t feel conscious of how healthy you are.

Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf. ~Jonatan Mårtensson
As a people, we have become obsessed with Health. There is something fundamentally, radically unhealthy about all this. We do not seem to be seeking more exuberance in living as much as staving off failure, putting off dying. We have lost all confidence in the human body. ~Lewis Thomas, The Medusa and the Snail, 1979
