Pillar 4: Emotion


Physical health is connected to mental and emotional health. Taking care of your body is a powerful first step towards mental and emotional health. When you improve your physical health, you’ll automatically experience greater mental and emotional well-being. For example, exercise not only strengthens our heart and lungs, but also releases endorphins, powerful chemicals that energize us and lift our mood.


The activities you engage in and the daily choices you make affect the way you feel physically and emotionally. In order to maintain and strengthen your mental and emotional health, it’s important to pay attention to your own needs and feelings. If you take care of yourself, you’ll be better prepared to deal with challenges if and when they arise.


Taking care of yourself includes pursuing activities that naturally release endorphins and contribute to feeling good. In addition to physical exercise, endorphins are also naturally released when we do things that positively impact others, practice self-discipline, learn or discover new things, manage stress levels, limit unhealthy mental habits like worrying, and make time for contemplation and appreciation.


What you can do: The new year is a great time to take an inventory of your mental and emotional well-being. Are there changes you want to make to your behavior or habits that can help you reduce stress and be happier? Make a list. Start small and move on to bigger challenges. Feed your body well. Exercise. Get an adequate amount of sleep.


At Crucial Four, we believe strongly in the mind:body connection. There are many herbs and plants known for helping calm the mind, bring focus, and improve mood. We’ll discuss those here as well. Our goal is to showchase ways we can help you build your best you.

  1. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through some of the post
    I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I
    found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

  2. Quality posts is the crucial to be a focus for the people to go
    to see the web page, that’s what this website is providing.

  3. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off
    the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

  4. I want to to thank you for this wonderful read!! I absolutely
    loved every bit of it. I’ve got you saved as a favorite to
    look at new things you post…

  5. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how
    you presented it. Too cool!

  6. Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give
    it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking
    and will be tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and wonderful design.

    about blogging. thanks.

  8. Hi, yup this article is really good and I have learned
    lot of things from it regarding blogging. thanks.

  9. Since the admin of this site is working, no doubt very quickly it will be well-known, due to
    its quality contents.

  10. It’s really very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I
    only use internet for that purpose, and get the most up-to-date information.

  11. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact
    same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
