Emotional balance is a term used often in mental health and holistic wellness. Emotional imbalances occur when a person is not coping with life effectively. For example, high stress levels, depression, anger or feelings of frustration or loneliness can cause an emotional imbalance within us. We may not be able to find a solution to life’s ups and downs. We can feel like the world is out to get us, and that we are jinxed with bad luck.
It is important to balance these emotions to avoid further problems. When we balance our emotions, we see that life is more manageable than we realised. We begin to notice moments of joy or happiness easier. We practice gratitude and we complain less. When we come from an emotionally balanced place, our mental and physical health seems easier to manage.
Emotional balance involves regular practice of things we enjoy. This can be developing hobbies we love, spending time with people who lift us up or taking a few minutes every night to notice things to be grateful for. Other ways to balance our emotions include exercise, meditation, art, yoga, relaxation, energy healing such as Reiki, herbal medicine, massage, acupuncture, aromatherapy, reflexology, counseling, and spending time in nature.
The most important thing is to find something you absolutely love to do regularly, and emotional balance will begin to follow.

Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
