Do you ever suffer from back pain more when you’re stressed? Perhaps like you have literally been carrying around a heavy burden for a while? How about having trouble breathing when you are suffering from heart ache?

It seems a bit strange as emotions are largely regarded as detached from the physical world most of the time, but our emotional pain really can cause physical discomfort. In an article from Collective Evolution titled ‘The Effects of Nature Emotions on our Health’ we found the chart above that explains the physical repercussions of negative emotions. They very rightly state that:

“Our emotions and experiences are essentially energy and they can be stored in the cellular memory of our bodies… Have you ever experienced something in your life that left an emotional mark or pain in a certain area of your body? Almost as if you can still feel something that may have happened to you? It is likely because in that area of your body you still hold energy released from that experience that is remaining in that area.”

According to the chart that they found, shoulder pain can be the result of making “life a burden” when life is supposed to be enjoyed not endured. Our emotions can even have an impacts on stranger parts of our bodies like our elbows, wrists and knees! So, it’s always important to listen to every part of our bodies if they are aching for attention!

What do you think? Can positive emotions cause physical changes?
