Focusing in and out
March 27, 2013

For these few months, I am expanding on the twelve warning signs of Emotional Health that I listed in the 21st January newsletter.

These are the first nine and today I am looking at number nine

  1. Persistent presence of support networks
  2. Chronic positive expectations; tendency to frame events in a constructive light
  3. Episodic peak experiences
  4. Sense of spiritual involvement
  5. Increased sensitivity to others and self
  6. Tendency to adapt to changing circumstances
  7. Rapid response and recovery of adrenaline system due to repeated challenges
  8. Increased appetite for physical activity
  9. Tendency to identify and communicate feelings

This one really speaks to me. This is because as I understand and experience it, emotional health means being in tune with your emotions. These will be communicating to you all the time, like incessant background chatter, occasionally interspersed with something much louder and so difficult to ignore. And the prompting for this chatter will come a lot of the time from what is happening “out there”.

It follows that as it is easy for you to notice these emotions and indeed actually enjoy and are be curious about them, that you might also wish to communicate them to those around you.

Why not?

best wishes
