Health Tip: Staying Emotionally Healthy

(HealthDay News) -- People who are emotionally healthy handle stress well, have a positive self-image, and are able to sustain healthy relationships.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to help you stay emotionally healthy:

  • Establish what you are feeling, and what's causing those feelings.
  • Be open with yourself and others about your emotions, instead of keeping the sources of stress and anxiety to yourself.
  • Focus on the positive things in your life instead of dwelling on the negative. Deal with what's bothering you, but don't let it overwhelm you.
  • Try relaxation methods, including meditation, yoga or deep breathing exercises.
  • Take care of your physical self with a healthy diet, regular exercise and a good sleep schedule.
