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.
The above infographic created by Centripetal Force Studio about emotional pain shows that 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?
