How your brain functions has everything to do with your emotional life and how you manage it. In fact, your emotional health and well-being is one of the greatest assets you possess - more precious than your financial bottom line, even.

Unfortunately as an adult, you may have been trained away from - negatively conditioned, even - from including your active, conscious participation in your emotional life as a central, even essential, part of taking care of your health.

You weren't born that way, however. As an infant and child, your emotional life was just part of what you dealt with moment-by-moment-by moment. You tended to 'emotional ouches' as they occurred just like the physical ouches that are part of every child's experience.

Instead, you likely had to unlearn that natural integration and wall off your emotional life so it was at the very least separate from the rest of your self, and sometimes even buried so it was totally disowned.

By the time whole cultures do this to children, it makes for a pretty dysfunctional world!

When this is your condition as an adult you need to turn it around, not only reclaiming your emotional life, but placing it back at the center of your life where it belongs. You need to get reacquainted with a fundamental part of yourself that was long ago left by the wayside where it remains abandoned, neglected, barely surviving. But how is this possible?

Of great benefit in this situation is to have an overview of what a healthy emotional life looks like, what it includes, how it unfolds. This provides a way to understand what to do in each aspect of emotional life. It also grants you the means to discover what phase of your emotional life you are in right now, and therefore what tasks you need to attend to now.

When you have such a guide, you can use it to begin reclaiming those long neglected parts of yourself so you can bring them back to healthy functioning. Also, using such a guide, you will not only improve your own individual emotional health and well-being, you will also have healthy ways to support the emotional life of your children, grandchildren, partners, friends, parents, co-workers etc. In short, you are contributing to a better life for yourself, and for each individual with whom you come in contact - everyone in the world in which you live. This is how a process that seems intensely personal and private actually has major political effects.

With a map of the emotional territory of life, it's straightforward process to re-integrate your emotional life. It once again becomes a normal part of your life, something you attend to every day, automatically, like you attend to needs for hunger, food, rest, companionship, exercise. And you are removing one of the most potent negative influences on your brain function - emotional stress.
