Manage your emotions to live longer…
Although current research suggests that some people increase in emotional intelligence with age, others don’t.
In this study, titled “Stress
and Illness: A role for specific emotions”, the research was focused more on the regulation of emotion than on the experience of the emotion.
While suppression of emotion just reduces the way you express that emotion… The reappraisal of an emotion means you control the way you feel about something… Reappraisal and suppression have different physiological outcomes in both the autonomic and central nervous system.
In general, suppression is less “healthy” (i.e., requiring additional physiological resources to constrain the powerful expressive forces) than reappraisal.
For example, the researchers found that heart rate increases were DOUBLE with the suppression of emotion, compared to simply expressing that emotion.
Therefore, there is a greater metabolic cost (wear and tear) associated with the suppression of emotions.

The MOST dangerous type of cancer cell MUST be disarmed if there’s any hope of beating cancer
Scientists have discoverd that cancer cells have a certain hierarchy.
…Similar to a bee colony. There’s the worker bees, and the queen bee, whose sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of the colony by laying eggs.
So it is with cancer...
There’s the hundreds of thousands of normal cancer cells, and then nestled deep inside a tumour
, is at least one cancer stem cell…
Like the queen bee, these cancer stem cells’ sole responsibility is to ensure the survival of their colony by mutating and evolving.
Until now, chemotherapy and radiation have been unsuccessful in disarming these dominant cancer cells…
But now there’s new hope for cancer sufferers.
Find out here how a Natural compound has been shown to destroy cancer stem cells…
So what can you do today?
If you have any negative feelings like guilt, anger, sadness, bitterness or resentment… whether it is chronic (built up over a period) or acute (short term), rather than suppressing or fighting that emotion, work through it and allow yourself to experience it.
This may not come easily, especially if you have a habit of suppresing emotions. Learning to accept and appreciate your emotions for what they are is something everyone can do. It requires you to make a decision and give yourself permission to feel.
The bottom line is that you can severely influence your health and longevity by how you respond emotionally to your life experiences.
Emotional intelligence is a topic that is very close to my heart and I have devoted much time in studying and understanding how to develop and apply this skill as a tool in fighting disease and helping myself and my clients to thrive.
