Many of us look forward to the holidays and a sense joy and excitement. Others may dread the holiday season, associating it with stress, familial discord or unhappiness. Safeguarding your emotional health and well-being during this time of year may be the biggest gift you can give to yourself or those around you.
In today's modern society, most of us have heard "you are what you eat" or "you are what you think". We have certainly hears "your emotions impact your physical health". The emotions of anger, joy, sadness, worry, pensiveness, fear, and shock are part of the beauty and depth of our very human experience, what can be greatly exacerbated during the holidays. When these emotions becomes excessive or all-consuming, or detrimental, it is importance to address the emotions and your well-being.
Fortunately, many avenues exist to treat emotional health such as counseling, mindful meditation, cognitive behavior therapy, healthy exercise and societal outlets, and yes, Complementary Alternative Medicine, including Asian Medicine.
Joy is an emotion we expect over the holidays, or at special events such as marriage, birth, of the start of something special to us. However, joy can become manic and excessive, disproportionate to the circumstances. Asian Medicine treats mind-body-spirit, calming the heart and easing us into a more peaceful state.
