what is it and how to achieve it?

Feeling good and in harmony are its main characteristics and, just as they affect ourselves, they also affect our environment. Emotional well-being allows us to be aware of our abilities to face life in a balanced way.

Psychologist Fátima López Moreira, in a conversation with VOS magazine, explained that it covers different aspects of our life, such as self-esteem, eating habits, sleep quality and even our interpersonal relationships.

As a main aspect, the emphasis is on sleep hygiene, precisely in this post-pandemic phase, because it is this that ultimately determines the mood of the person and connects it to his emotions, the result is more positive than negative if the rest is healthy and uninterrupted. .

“The person has to identify their emotions. We need to see the human being in an inclusive way and take care of all factors. It’s important that you talk about your emotions and don’t suppress them, nor should you think too much, because that can affect your self-esteem and how you function in your environment, “she said.

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects the way we think, feel and act when we face life. It also helps determine how we manage stress, relate to others and make decisions.

“It is very important to learn the tools to identify our feelings, as we tend to connect to them only when we are starting a disorder or when there is a crisis of anguish or anxiety. Before this starts, we can stop if we really know each other, “she said.

One of the psychologist’s suggestions is to listen to yourself in order to balance our lives to enjoy optimal mental and emotional health. “The person who has emotional well-being has good self-esteem and it shows. In general, he doesn’t doubt his decisions and doesn’t think too much about things, “he said.

“Emotional well-being allows us to be successful in the workplace where we work because it is in harmony and tranquility, and this happens when we manage our emotions”, he remarked.

The emotionally healthy person is not the one who does not have problems or anguish, but the one who knows how to keep his own balance, and this is closely linked to his interior, his self-confidence and his ability to seek solutions if there is. any adversity.

It is essential in all stages of life, from childhood and adolescence to adulthood and old age, for this reason the psychologist recommends some points to feel good and balanced:

– Identify our emotions and be attentive to which spaces arise.

– Take care of our food.

– Improve sleep quality.

– Take care of our interpersonal relationships.

– Avoid the excesses that might present us.

– Engage our own emotions better.
