How emotions affect our organs?

Anger, frustration, fear, and other “negative emotions” are all part of the human experience. They can all lead to stress but if handled properly, they can actually be healthy for us to experience as well. A better approach is to manage them without denying them.

Well, positive emotions release feel good chemicals and negative ones release stress hormone and adrenaline. Though they aren’t totally negative, your body undergoes stress when they are released. It is a scientific fact that negative emotions affect the body.

When our ancestors have repeatedly asked us to reduce stress levels and enjoy a relaxed life, we gave a deaf year but today science proved the actual link between the mind and the body.

Let’s see how

Anger Weakens Liver:

A fit of rage isn’t so healthy to the liver, experts say. Anger may cause indigestion, diarrhea and in women, menstrual issues too. When you suppress anger, it might also affect your liver.

Worry Disturbs Your Spleen:

Fatigue and digestive issues may arise. Your spleen which is located near the stomach may get affected with this emotion.

Fear May Scare Your Kidneys:

When you are scared, you may even urinate, right? Anxiety and extreme levels of fear directly stress up your kidneys. Do you know the fact that even fear of future can also damage your kidneys?

Extreme Sadness Affects Lungs:

When you are sad, your lungs may get affected. You may feel depressed, exhausted and may feel difficulty in breathing and may feel like crying.

Shock Kills Your Heart And Kidneys:

When you are shocked, your heart and kidneys go through tough time due to the overflow of adrenaline. Severe shock can even kill a person.

Opposite happens with positive emotions

When you laugh, your stress vanishes
When you love, your fear vanishes
When you are happy your depression minimises.

So, this is how positive emotions can save your life and add years to your lifespan.

Managing Negative emotions:

The idea of “managing” negative emotions is a complex one. It doesn’t mean avoiding feeling them because running away from them can often backfire.
It also doesn’t mean letting these negative emotions wreak havoc on your life, your relationships, and your stress levels.
Unmanaged anger, for example, can compel us to destroy relationships if we allow it to.

Managing negative emotions is more about embracing the fact that:
1) we are feeling them,
2) determining why we are feeling this way, and
3) allowing ourselves to receive the messages that they are sending us before we release them and move forward.

(Yes, that statement may sound a little odd, but our emotions are definitely designed to be messengers to tell us something, and these messages can be very valuable if we listen.)

Managing negative emotions also means not allowing them to overrun us. We can keep them under control without denying that we are feeling them.

So accept and embrace to live in miracles of health ❤️😊
