Getting in Touch with Your Feelings
Increasing your emotional awareness can help to improve your emotional health and overall well-being. Emotional awareness is not something most of us are particularly good at, either, with only one-third of people accurately assessing their emotions regularly.
The reason it can be hard to evaluate how you are feeling is that emotions originate in your most deeply held hopes, dreams, and goals.
Are you ready to start understanding your feelings and getting in touch with your emotional health?
Here are four simple steps to help you get started.
Step 1: Name your emotions. Try to be as accurate as possible about what you are feeling, so that you will recognize this emotion again in the future and can identify the source of this emotion, too.
Step 2: When naming your emotion, be sure you are looking deeper to see if there are emotions that are being covered up by a more immediate reaction. Look at what is happening underneath, not just what is on the surface.
Step 3: Track a frequently felt emotion throughout an entire day. Make some notes for this day to help you look back later and analyze this emotion more carefully.
Step 4: If you find that you are struggling to really name the emotions or even to want to acknowledge them when they occur, you may want to talk with a mental health professional. Denial is a powerful force that can prevent you from developing emotional awareness.
When you read Your Emotional Health: The Complete Guide, you will learn much more about how to get in touch with your feelings, how to identify the source of your emotions, and how to process these feelings in a healthy way.

How Happiness and Joy in Daily Life Promote Emotional Health
How you define happiness, and what makes you happy are entirely subjective. And yet, while happiness is not the same for each person, we all know when we are happy and when we are not. We generally know what makes us happy and what detracts from our happiness, as well.
Joy, which is more than just happiness and includes emotions like hope and contentment, is a state of mind that can have huge impacts on your emotional health.
Achieving happiness and joy are the goals of emotional health. When you have these in your life, you can balance your needs with your wants, you can manage your emotions so they are not controlling your life, and you can connect on a deep level with those who bring you positive emotions.

Why Ignoring your Emotions is Bad for Your Health
We each face emotional challenges regularly. While some of these are placed up us from within, others are presented through external forces that demand action. The strongest and most negative feelings we experience are often the hardest to process and understand. Which is why most people choose to ignore or push these intense feelings aside.
Sadness, anxiety, anger, guilt, and shame are all examples of the painful feelings that most of us would rather not deal with. And we have lots of tricks in our culture for avoiding our negative emotions.
Staring at our phones, playing games, drinking, taking prescription or recreational drugs, or engaging in risky behaviors are all things we do mostly to avoid our feelings.
But when to consistently choose to push these feelings aside rather than acknowledge and process them, we create pressure that will, at some point, need to be released.
Common ways that negative emotions have a way of influencing your life and behaviors include:
• Angry outbursts
• Emotional responses to minor events
• Irrational reactions to becoming upset or angry
• Throwing or destroying objects
• Becoming aggressive or even violent toward others
• Uncontrollable crying
• Threats against yourself or others
If your emotions are controlling your life, instead of the other way around, then you are ready to improve your emotional health.
