Eating Disorder

Individuals with an eating disorder experience intense fear of gaining weight. These individuals obsess about weight loss in secret. Weight loss is usually promoted by extreme limitations in food intake especially carbohydrates and fat, excessive exercising, bingeing and purging.

Emotional Regulation

Emotional Regulation

Emotional regulation is the process that determines the emotions, impact of emotions, how these emotions arise, and how they express those emotions. The expression of these emotions can be voluntary or involuntary or regulated consciously or unconsciously. 

Emotional regulation makes a great chuck on mental health. This can be in positive and negative forms. It would help if you had to learn how to modulate the impact of emotions, or otherwise, your mental health might turn into depression, anxiety, and bipolar behavior.

Emotional regulation uniquely does its job. It helps in highlighting the emotion, which can pretend to be a modifier. 

It motivates the person to attend to the emotion that will not evoke any depression, anxiety, and bipolar attitude. According to studies, people who have low anxiety levels can control their emotions in a better way as compared to those who have bipolar attitudes. Healthy mental health is the most important component of how one can control his or her emotion.
