Mental health and physical health are closely linked. Your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. If you have good emotional health, you are aware of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You learn healthy ways to cope with the stress that is a normal part of life. When you are stressed, anxious, or upset, your body reacts in a way that might tell you something isn’t right. It is important to develop healthy habits for our minds as well as for our bodies.
