The profile of a person prone to emotional distress is usually someone with low self-esteem, pessimistic, emotionally sensitive, very self-critical…, people who need to constantly assert themselves through their behavior. They also tend to be afraid, overly worried about the future, and focused on the past. As Dr. Marisa Navarro says in her book La Medicina Emocional (Emotional Medicine), "no one is safe from suffering this emotional state. It is a very serious problem that can result in constant states of anger, sadness, worry and even anxiety or depression".
On the positive side, enhanced emotional well-being is seen to contribute to upward spirals in increasing coping ability, self-esteem, performance and productivity at work, and even longevity. Thoughts determine our feelings, and thoughts are nothing more than firings of neurons. And those feelings that our thoughts generate make our body release extremely addicting substances like adrenaline and cortisol. Like with any other addiction, the need to continually feed off these addicting substances tends to make the body think and feel in a certain way. When someone decides to disengage from these emotional addictions, they have to learn to think differently.
Good emotional health leads to better physical health, prevents diseases, and makes it possible to enjoy life and be happier. In this way one can become a "medicine person" through mirror neurons, those that lead to empathy and fire to imitate the emotions of others. Mirror neurons are what make people feel good when they are with someone who is positive, cheerful and motivational. At the other extreme are the so-called "toxic people", who make others around them feel bad.
The Help Guide (2016) describes emotionally healthy people as possessing:
A sense of contentment;
A zest for life;
The ability to deal with stress and obstacles;
A sense of meaning and purpose in life;
The flexibility to learn and adapt;
The ability to balance work and play;
The capability to create and maintain relationships;
High levels of self-confidence and self-esteem.

Depression can change the way a patient sees the world, eliminating the vibrancy of naturally occurring colors.
But also, viewing the world as a drab, colorless environment could worsen depression, perpetuating the emotions of loneliness and sadness.
When you allow your negative emotions to get to you, you disconnect from your ability to think clearly, remember things, learn lessons, reason and make effective decisions.
It is the Water signs that teach us that we must get in touch with our feeling nature in order to access the instinctual nature of our behavior. We must develop a relationship with our emotional body in order to overcome feelings of isolation and vulnerability and to develop an inner sense of security and safety.
Emotions are not thought about. Emotions are experienced. Emotions are felt. Emotions are sensed. Emotions are integrated into our consciousness through feeling the sensations in our body. The basic problem is that feeling our sensations in our body is at first a very scary and uncomfortable experience. We avoid it at all costs. And the cost is very high. When the costs are more than we can bear - mental torment, physical illness, financial ruin, emotional estrangement from others - we submit ourselves to the inevitable journey into the pit of our own psyche. When we come to the realization that whatever misery we have attracted is of our own doing, we are humbled enough to begin the Scorpionic path to liberation.
Our emotional energy, expressed as frustration and stress is potential power. Our anger is potential light that propels us to action. Our fear is potential energy. Our sadness is potential bliss.
Sooner or later awakening Scorpio realizes that it is suffering from emotional, not physical, exhaustion. Uncovering the source of its emotional pain becomes imperative. Healing the emotional body becomes its mission.
the emotional body is the causal level of manifestation. Manifestation begins with a thought, but it is the emotional body, the desire energy that furnishes the juice to bring it into being. Ideas seed an event or circumstance. Emotions provide the charge or the "motion" for the action to happen. Our inner desires and feeling nature are the cause of what we create in our outer world.

4 Stresses to emotions are like junk food to the physical body
The emotions must be nurtured on a specific type of nutrition:
Most of the emotion that disturbs our mind has incorrect perception as its basis – there is a gap between appearance and reality.
The antidote to wrong perception is compassion – to have genuine care and concern for the other person because it is from this place that we close the gap between what we think we see and what is really happening.
The more we understand our emotions and their relevance the easier it is to ask ourselves “is this just my wrong thinking?”
.Depression appears to be a secondary emotion, not primary, made up of the following ingredients: 1) one or more primary emotions-anxiety, anger, guilt, and grief particularly, as well as self-pity, loneliness, alienation, apathy, and despair-precipitated in 2) an ego inadequate in channeling emotions constructively, 3) the associated phenomenological tendencies inherent within the emotions, and 4) the sense of helplessness that ensues
Want customers to feel empowered to change their emotional thinking.
What causes them?
Thoughts create emotions. We can control our emotions by controlling our thoughts. By standing guard at the door of our minds, acknowledging our thoughts and turning them away.
