About the Book

Emotional fitness is much like physical fitness: the more you exercise certain behaviors consistently, the more fit you can become. When you are emotionally fit, you possess more emotional energy and stamina to help you through daily trials. You can “bounce back” more easily from emotional upsets, and, most important, you can maintain healthier and more beneficial relationships. Experienced counselor Betty Hamblen uses the insight she has gained from research and the struggles of her own clients to identify ten behaviors that can lead to improved emotional health. She addresses what kinds of issues need to be confronted, why violating your values has you in an emotional tailspin, how control of natural boundaries is important, how gaining control of anger benefits you, and which relationships are the most needful. Based on true-to-life stories and drawing principles from sacred scriptures, Emotional Fitness: A Counselor’s Perspective offers practical, step-by-step guides for improving emotional health. You will learn how to handle out-of-control anger, maintain appropriate “fences,” confront troubling issues, eliminate unhealthy pursuits, and cultivate important relationships, particularly the most important one of all.
