What is Emotional health?
Emotional health refers to how an individual experiences his or her emotions. It’s also called self-esteem or the person’s sense of worth. Emotional health is influenced by various environmental, socioeconomic, and personal factors. For example, a person who has been exposed to a serious life event such as a death, divorce, loss of a job, or even loss of a family member may develop emotional distress and low self-esteem.
University of Maryland research on Emotional health:
A study by the University of Maryland and published in Psychosomatic Medicine reported that among a sample of people who had recently experienced a serious life event, there was a higher risk of developing low emotional health, compared to a control group of healthy individuals. The researchers concluded that emotional health is affected by exposure to major stressors during one’s childhood and adulthood. These can range from parental separation to a major health problem.
The study also found that low emotional health can be caused by environmental stress. This means exposure to a specific type of stressor can cause changes in the way you respond to social situations and increase your vulnerability to developing emotional health disorders.
People with high levels of stress are more likely to have low emotional health and depression. A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that people who are in a relationship with significant stress or who have high levels of stress are more susceptible to developing depression.
Another study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology concluded that people with a history of being physically abused have a greater risk of developing a depressive disorder compared to other healthy people.
Effects of Abuse on Emotional Health
The effects of physical abuse can also lead to high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Studies have shown that women who have been physically abused are at a greater risk of developing high blood pressure than women without any history of being abused. In fact, studies have shown that women who have experienced a major life event such as the death of a loved one are more susceptible to developing high blood pressure than those who did not.
In order for physical abuse to affect someone’s emotional health, it needs to be sustained over time. It is not possible to avoid physical abuse if you have been abused in the past but there are ways to prevent or reduce your risk.
Emotionally abused individuals are at a greater risk for developing depression because they may have been physically abused before the relationship developed. When a relationship is damaged emotionally, this can lead to feelings of shame, isolation can lead to high levels of stress and lower levels of self-esteem. This can also lead to high levels of anxiety and feelings of worthlessness.
How to reduce effect of emotional abuse:
There are several ways to reduce the effects of emotional abuse. It is important to try to maintain a loving relationship with your abuser. There are support groups for people who have been in relationships similar to yours. It is also important to seek help when you are feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or ashamed.
The most effective way to reduce stress in a relationship is by having regular counseling. Your abuser should be able to tell you if there is an underlying reason for the relationship problems. If there is a problem, it will be easier to work things out. It is important for you to set clear rules about who can speak to whom and when.
Although physical abuse will have an impact on your emotional health, it does not mean that you cannot take care of yourself. Eating well, getting enough sleep, engaging in exercise, joining a support group, and spending time with friends can help to reduce the effects of stress on your health. These actions will help you feel better and boost your physical health.
In addition to healthy relationships, emotional abuse can have a negative impact on your health. The stress from a relationship will keep you from living a healthy lifestyle. Physical abuse can cause a host of physical issues that can negatively impact your health.
People who are constantly being threatened or belittled or yelled at may develop high cholesterol levels, obesity, and diabetes. Low levels of self-esteem can also lead to poor health.
