Sharing is caring

Locking away your emotions is not good for anyone involved, but mostly it’s not good for you.

Studies show that how we release our emotions not only affects our emotional health, but our physical health as well.

Actively holding back emotions is hard work and tough on the body, to the point that it could affect our immune system, heart, and even our nervous system. Ultimately, translating to greater risk of disease.

Today, share an emotion with someone that you’ve been locking away.

It might be about a specific situation that you’ve been holding inside or just about your life in general.

No matter what it is, it’s critical for your mental – and even physical – health to let it out and let it go.

You may feel sadness, contentment, happiness, relief – but in the end you’re getting it off your shoulders and releasing it into the world.

And that takes a lot of courage.

So, don’t forget to be proud of yourself in return.
