According to Ayurveda, repressing emotions can lead to disease and pain in the body. The more we hold onto uncomfortable feelings, the more pain and blockages can build up. Suppression can lead to overuse, misuse and no use of parts of the body, mind and sense organs. Our bodies, mind and spirits are temples and healthy expression can lead to better health, energy, sleep and feeling happier.
This is why it is so important to stay connected with who you are, your emotions, feelings and needs. So, make sure to take a few moments every day to check-in and recharge when needed.
In the future I will write more about healthy expression through NVC~ non-violent communication, or sometimes also known as mindful or aware communication.
Lots of love,
