Mental and emotional wellness is a very broad topic. What I’m here to address, suggest, inspire and bring to light is a fresh perspective on mental and emotional health.
Just as we go through life stages, growth and development physically, we as humans are designed to go through growth and development mentally and emotionally. In order to grow mentally we need mental stimulation, or intellectual stimulation. Not in the form of following a path or rules set forth by others, rather by exploring beliefs, ideas and concepts where we are strengthening and formulating our own beliefs and ideas and, applying them in our own lives. What this does is shift our mindset from a very fixed belief or idea and expands into a new area. This provides one with the capability to think for themselves.
Emotional wellness requires you to release, remove, relinquish the pain causes by the disruptive emotion. Emotions are energy in motion. With an unstable, disruptive emotion resulting from being triggered you continue to repeat the pattern of unhealthy emotional reaction.
The two issues with Mental and Emotional Wellness I am pointing our are repeating patterns without finding a solution or strategy to move beyond the fixed point.
Here are 4 Key Strategies to Mental and Emotional Wellness:
- Be willing to observe your experiences from the places and environments you are in to the belief systems of these environments. When you are in an environment that stifles your ideas, creativity, your ability to define success and happiness on your own terms to feel safe in your own identity, your mental and emotional health will need to settle. In this kind of environment you will be triggered and run in a cycle. As you settle, gain your bearings, look around, find a new environment. Trust your inner compass, stretch your mindset, your beliefs and trust the feelings of belonging and happiness you desire. Then act.
- Honor your emotions and feelings. You have the power and the ability to listen, feel and trust your emotions and feelings. In situations that challenge your beliefs and ideas, that make you wrong, bad, devalue you, and/or cut your own feelings of joy and belonging it becomes personal power to honor and own your own true feelings. Stand strong, stand tall, stand proud, let your own emotions flow and move through you.
- Apply the wisdom of the season. This winter as we come to a close of the year, of a cycle, you are given the dark of longer nights to turn in and let go, to shed old programming, old patterns or habits that no longer will move you forward in the new year. The dark is a great place to release, to let go, turn in and comfort yourself, bringing your feelings and emotions to the surface, free them making space for the new. The new may yet to be determined. You’ll gather your own new from mental stimulation with freedom of thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs and joy. The next cycle, chapter and growth.
- Trust in the process of growth organically and intuitively. Human beings are designed to grow, contribute, build and connect. When you allow and give yourself time and space to clear, heal, transmute, release and flow your emotions and your mindset, you open to and connect to your Divinity. In this process you restore your connection to your source, you believe in your message and mission. Your flow for Divine Timing, Manifestation and Alignment all take root in your being. This is Mental and Emotional Wellness. You’re open receptive, allowing, and sending out signals that match you from the place of your emotions flowing freely with connection to your own Being.
This is the season to Tune in, to Turn in and to Trust. Here, during the shift to longer nights you are supported in shaking off the old. All the ways your beliefs, mindset, current connections/groups are fixed, limited in expansion and growth and all the ways your emotions have been stuck, stifled, disrupted, diffused or extinguished. This is the season to allow the freedom of your mind and of your heart. To trust in your own unique path, settle in and give yourself time and space to move mentally and emotionally and watch how your world transforms. It’s here your physical world connects to your path; to the people, environments, culture, experiences and opportunities you have been seeking.

Learning to implement and apply good habits in every area of your life can be challenging especially with so many time commitments. It takes discipline, focus and a plan that works for you. Overcoming disruptive eating patterns, excuses for why you’re not working out, finding …
Moving forward, leveling up all has a foundation in change. Albert Einstein stated, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Simon Sinek a thought leader of our generation teaches about Finite and Infinite. “Finite players play to beat …
Starting out in your career you had a plan, a vision and a way to focus on your investments, your savings. You knew you would increase in earning through growth of your career and in your investments.
How about your plan for health and well being? Maybe you’ve been on an exercise plan, a nutrition plan. A plan that has worked for you, keeps things feeling like your moving.
What if, you desire something greater in your health and well being? Are you willing to put in a greater investment of risk? Risk of doing something different to achieve greater results.
It’s not more time that is needed.
Intellectual Stimulation is necessary. Intellectual Stimulation breaks you free of the glass ceiling you hit up against every time you’re looking for greater gains in health and well being.
To disrupt your status quo in health and well being and continue growth, success and achieving new heights stimulation of your creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem solving are necessary. Risk what you know for something new. This is where your true journey to health and fitness begins.
You let go. You open to new possibilities. You allow for new methods of fitness and nutrition to inspire you. Inspiration is the birthplace of change. You’re on a new path. One that has you finding excitement, passion in your actions and a sense of joy towards your goals.
Joy is an inner feeling. It’s not the outward result, it is the driving force towards your results. Think of a baseball pitcher. Each time he goes out to play he must have a level of joy- excitement and passion. Status quo for a baseball pitcher means he no longer has the fire necessary to win and play.
Invest in your health and well being. Take on a new plan. Maximize your time and energy, breaking free from the status quo.
Supporting your health through practices which evolve and build your strength and power in each area of health, you create a more sustainable, impactful and fruitful way to manage your own life.
Being able to understand the role and essence of well being in your life asks that you take a moment to assess where you’re at. How do you feel? I’m talking about how do you feel physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Now, Spiritually doesn’t relate to religion, it relates to yourself and something greater- from belief in yourself to faith in your next step and grace in allowing the good true and beautiful flow to you.
Physical health can often be mis-interpreted by ones appearance. Thats not truth, although, the feeling of looking good is a result of taking pride and care in ones own physical health. Physical health is a conscious effort to move your body- to actively and consciously make good decisions with food. Just as your career, and your finances expect good decision making so does your health and nutrition, your physical body.
Mental health is necessary to hold you, to find peace, to strengthen your resolve and embrace change. Embracing change can be uncomfortable and hard, yet change and growth is the only thing that is constant. Having a plan and practice in place to move with change can be one of the greatest ways you can support your health. It helps you see a bigger picture, to understand with out reaction new steps are necessary for the direction and change you want to move towards in your life, and mental strength keeps your focus. Focus towards your desires outcome, results. And, we all love results!
Emotional health is the ability to let go of negative and old feelings and emotions. These feelings and emotions weigh you down- physically and mentally too! Emotional health has you look at old patterns, beliefs and experiences that left you hurt, feeling trapped or left out. Your emotions are a guide. When you have clarity, true desire and feeling your energy radiates in that direction towards your goal and desire. This is one reason so many people have a hard time maintaining a fitness plan or keeping a clean eating plan. There are feelings and emotions of unworthy, low self esteem, not capable and just a host of unhealthy feelings and emotions blocking a genuine and true path to a healthy body. Plus, to be real here, a fitness plan must match you, not you match the fitness plan. When deciding you want to have better health, choosing a lifestyle plan that incorporates all areas of well being and addresses your needs in a fitness plan will build and develop sustainability and consistency, the 2 key ingredients to health and well being.
Well being and health begin with you. To see well being and health as an asset that must be nurtured, invested in and have healthy habits and practices. Just like money, your health can be gained in these habits, practices and lifestyle actions.
