We often go through difficult periods in our life due to loss or change. Sometimes we keep making the same mistakes in our relationships and need some help to identify what we are doing and why. Our emotional and physical health affect each other more than we realise and we sometimes find unhealthy ways of coping. We often resort to extreme behaviours, for example we may start to comfort eat or to stop eating. We may find that we are drinking or smoking too much. Some of us bury ourselves in our work while others may stop functioning and need to hide away. Because of this, your emotional health is often the key to your physical health.
