Not the same, but so co-dependent.
If you are anything like me, your physical health has so much to do with your mental health. And vice versa. One going well? The other one probably is too. Unfortunately, the converse is also true.
For me, my physical health is more determinative of my emotional health than the other way around. Over the past couple of years, I have been dealing with a physical health issue (the issue that drove me to start drinking so much water andin the first place) that almost entirely determines my mood when my problems start to act up. When I am physically uncomfortable because of my health issues, I have a very hard time being happy or excited about a lot of things. When my issues were undiagnosed for so long, I was frequently depressed. Depressed because I felt like I would never figure out what was wrong with me, and depressed because I was in physical pain. Because of my experiences, I am so amazed by people who, for example, have cancer and are dealing with chemo or radiation and are able to keep their good spirits about them. I find so much inspiration from people who can focus on the good and not let one issue dominate their lives and their health!
Focusing on the good is something I simply find so much easier when I am feeling well- well rested, well fed, well hydrated. When I am feeling good, I feel like I can make anything happen. I have a great life, and when I feel healthy and hydrated, I can truly enjoy it!
I know for many people, their mood will determine how they eat and if they stay hydrated, if they exercise, if they are well rested, if they are willing to make the effort to do what they need to feel physically well. What about you? Does your physical health effect your emotional health? Or are you just the opposite- your emotional health determines your physical health? I can see both sides really, and I find it so interesting how people come out on this issue. I am really looking forward to your comments on this one!
