Emotional Well-Being Is Key to Healthy You

In our daily quest for the well-being lifestyle, we often overlook our emotional well-being. In counseling my clients, I often remind them to step back and enjoy the moment. With the techie advantages we enjoy we are always on----Flex hours at work give us the ability to start earlier and work later; email synced with mobile devices allows us to be connected around the clock, every single day. And let's get real, sometimes we want to take a time out--- we need to take a time out and unplug from the continuous connections for our emotional well-being.

Following are guidelines to help ensure that you're taking care of your emotional health on the journey to the well-being lifestyle.

Live in the Present

Whether it is a special occasion, event, or unexpected compliment, enjoy the moment and savor the thoughtfulness of others in recognizing or complimenting you. Don't dwell on "I should have" or "if I had more time I would." Recognize that you are deserving and worthy, simply relax and revel in the good thoughts and intentions of others.

Develop Resilience

One of the most consistent things is change. Though change may not initially be viewed positively, our ability to adapt, accepting changes that impact our lives contributes greatly to emotional well-being. When change arises, it is important to keep a positive self-image, reach out for support from those who are close to us, and keep things in perspective.

Connect

Connect with family, friends, and colleagues building and nurturing relationships. The feeling of connection that results from relationships with others contributes to feelings of self-worth and happiness. Relationships enable us to share our feelings and concerns, with others who understand and care about us. These connections create a support system which fosters emotional well-being.

Laugh

The ability to laugh is priceless, and easy to do. Laughter is powerful medicine for both the mind and body. Its benefits include relaxation and boosting our immune system by decreasing stress hormones and increasing immune cells which improves our resistance to disease. Laughter is the catalyst for the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals. They create an overall sense of well-being, and are heart healthy. The hearty (pardon the pun) chuckle improves the function of blood vessels, increasing blood flow which helps promote cardiovascular health.

Be Active

Find an activity that you enjoy and include it as a regular part of your life. This can include volunteering, musical pursuits, sports, exercise or even something sedentary such as reading or word games. This activity gives you something to look forward to, relieves stress and contributes to overall well-being.

Practice Gratitude and Giving

Start each day considering the things you are thankful for. These thoughts of gratitude help give a fresh perspective and positive outlook. Giving does not have to be financial-it can be something as simple as a word of encouragement or compliment to another person. It may be donating time or talent, or asking someone how they are and really listening, instead of the pseudo listening that we often do.

This advice to ensure good emotional health is one aspect of the well-being lifestyle. This lifestyle is multi-faceted. It's about wise food choices, good nutrition, emotional health , activity and balance. Make sure you create a space for each one.

Take Away: Emotional well-being plays an essential role in the well-being lifestyle. Consider it along with other elements as you strive for a healthy lifestyle.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. To guard yourself use a credit card while shopping online. The federal government has passed laws to protect consumers in the event of fraud. The amount the buyer is responsible for is actually a mere $50.00 as compared to atm cards where the entire balance can be withdrawn by internet hackers.

2. A great tip to remember when you're thinking about online shopping is to ensure the site is legit. You don't want to be giving your credit card information away to somebody that could potentially scam you. Always look at the site to tell if it's professional and safe for use.

3. When you are making any purchases online and you are required to create a user account, never make use of the same passwords that you use on other websites. Do not make use of e-mail or banking password to make a free account to buy shoes from a web retailer. If someone was able to check this out password, they could have access to more than just your profile on the retailer's store.

4. Always save copies of your orders and receipts from online purchases. Many stores will redirect you to a page after you've submitted your order detailing exactly what was bought, customer information, the prices, etc. You should either print a copy of this or save a copy to your computer in case any issues arise before the end of the return period. Be sure to save any emails regarding your items' status or correspondence with the company regarding your orders, too.

5. After you have found the items you would like, check to see if there are any coupons offered. There are many websites that offer coupons. These coupons can be a certain percent off, a certain dollar amount off or free delivery. Many times several coupons are available. If this is the case, choose one that will save you as much as possible.
