Why should we take the responsibility and burden of others’ disappointments?

Psychoneuroendocrinology is a big word to pronounce. It may scare some of us. It is a relatively new discipline giving us valuable perspectives into the inseparable body and mind connection, particularly in dealing with toxic stress. This new discipline gives insights into complex interactions among the central nervous system, hormones, and behavior.

This discipline shows us evidence of the debilitating effects of emotional traumas on the emergence and manifestation of physical and mental health situations. It also teaches us the importance of emotional regulation for our mental health and overall well-being. Emotional intelligence, mastery, and maturity can be a preventative approach to emotional regulation.

Psychoneuroendocrinology combines biochemistry, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry, and psychology to explain physical and mental health disorders. This interdisciplinary approach focuses on the effects of our emotions turning into diseases when not appropriately managed by individuals. As the name implies, it has a particular focus on hormones and neurotransmitters, including endocrine and neural systems.

Body and mind are inseparable. Bodily reactions affect the mind and vice versa. As we don’t need to be an architect to enjoy a well-built house or a mechanical engineer to enjoy a good car, we don’t need to have a master’s or doctorate degrees to consume and benefit from the findings of psychoneuroendocrinology studies.

In this post, without going into theoretical details, I share five activities that helped me regulate my emotions and contributed to melting my chronic stress built over the years. The leading cause of stress was making others happy and aiming to prevent disappointments and disapproval from perceived authorities in the family, workplace, communities, and society.

I asked myself, “why should I take the responsibility and burden of others’ disappointments?”. The answer led me to live a more authentic life. With this self-awareness, I managed to live in a flow state most of the time, experience euphoria occasionally, and neutralize my other emotions with acceptance. Here are the five tips that may give you valuable perspectives on dealing with emotional stress and improving joy and happiness.
