However, many things that happen in your life can disrupt your emotional health and lead to strong feelings of sadness, stress, or anxiety. These things include:
Good changes can be just as stressful as bad changes.
Poor emotional health can weaken your body's immune system, making you more likely to get colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times. Also, when you are feeling stressed, anxious, or upset, you may not take care of your health as well as you should. You may not feel like exercising, eating nutritious foods or taking medicine that your doctor prescribes. Abuse of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs may also be a sign of poor emotional health. You tend to focus only in negative events and negative explanations for everything, loosing desire to do things, loosing desire to be social.
Back pain, Change in appetite, Chest pain, Constipation or diarrhea, Dry mouth, Extreme tiredness, General aches and pains, Headaches, High blood pressure, Insomnia (trouble sleeping) Lightheadedness, Palpitations (the feeling that your heart is racing), Sexual problems, Shortness of breath, Stiff neck, Sweating, Upset stomach, Weight gain or loss.
Take time acknowledge your feelings and thoughts so they stop paining you in all different way. Those emotions won't go away until you really listen.

Yesterday was a tough day taking care of a sick little man. I needed to unwind and have some time to myself - so of course I did some yoga.
One hour of upper body strength work ended with a crow pose, one of my favorites.
What do you do to relax from a long day?
