Step 10- Emotional Stability

How is your mind?

Are you always stressed?  Running frantic?
Social and emotional self-reliance are so important.  When life throws us a curve are we able to handle it?  Do we have a good support systems in place to help?  Here are some ideas for maintaining a good support system.
  • Family
  • Church
  • Professional Services
  • Friends

Having a good family structure is what will lead to good mental health.  Families have many issues they struggle with.  Among them are

  • Parenting issues
  • Pornography
  • Stress
  • Substance abuse
  • Out of wedlock pregnancy
  • Emotional and Mental issues
  • Grieving
  • Divorce
  • Marital issues

All of the above plus many more can contribute to an unhealthy family situation.  You will be unable to prepare if your existing family is having problems.  Addressing the above problem will allow you to help and move beyond it.  It may take some time but it will be worth it.

I suggest having some family time.  Try one night a week to spend time together as a family.
  • Go to a movie
  • Have dinner together
  • Play a game
  • Go on a walk
  • Read a book
  • Make something
  • Learn something new
  • Go to the library
  • Go to the farmers market
  • Go Swimming
  • Try a picnic

There are so many things you can do.  You don’t have to spend any money.  Your family loves you and wants to be with YOU.  They don’t want anything else but you and your time.
