Emotions can influence your health. It’s hard to control negative emotions such as impatience, anger, fear, stress, jealousy, but we shouldn’t let them destroy our well-being.
We’ve made a list of ten toxic emotions.
Anxiety can affect your state of mind. Moreover, it can have effects on your physical health. Conditions like ulcerative colitis, constipation, improper digestion can develop due to the presence of anxiety in our daily lives. If you suffer from anxiety, you may experience the following symptoms: dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, pain or weakness.
Envy and jealousy
Besides the fact that jealousy takes away your attention, it can affect the gall bladder. If our body produces an excessive number of hormones, the blood can stagnate in the liver, thus the liver produces an imbalanced amount of bile (that is found in the gall bladder). This can lead to insomnia, high cholesterol, weakened immunity, etc.
Frustration, jealousy and envy have a major impact on your liver, brain and gall bladder.
When you feel fear, the part of the brain that is in charge of the kidneys doesn’t function normally. This can cause different renal health problems or frequent urination.
In addition, fear can provoke diseases and pain in the lower back, kidneys, and adrenal glands.
Loneliness can affect your immunity. The persons who are isolated produce inflammatory compounds, which can deteriorate the functions of the immune system. Furthermore, loneliness can lead to depression, insomnia and it can affect your blood pressure.
Stress causes heart diseases. It is characterized by symptoms like increased or decreased appetite, insomnia, exhaustion, nausea, heart palpitations, and migraines.
Also, stress can affect the cardiovascular, reproductive, muscular system and it can cause mouth ulcers, asthma, mental problems, psoriasis, eczema, irritable colon, ulcerative colitis, gastritis.
Grief or sadness
When you’re sad, the breath flow doesn’t function normally, so you’re more likely to develop a bronchial condition like asthma. Also, it can cause shortness of breath or fatigue.
If you’re worried, you may experience stomach troubles, diarrhea, vomiting, chest pain or high blood pressure.
Besides this, worrying can affect your personal life, harming your relationships.
When you are angry, your body produces an excessive secretion of stress hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline. This can make you overreact. Also, anger has negative effects on the cardiovascular system, increasing the risk of having a heart attack.
Shock has a big impact on the brain, especially on the survival brain and the emotional brain. Besides, when you’re shocked, your body produces extra adrenaline that remains on the kidneys, provoking anxiety, stress, insomnia, heart palpitations.
Hate and impatience
These two emotions have negative effects on your heart health and intestines, causing palpitations, hypertension, and chest pain. Also, hate and impatience can harm the blood pressure.
We shouldn’t let these stand in the way of our happiness or success. You can overcome them if you try to have a positive state of mind.
