Emotionally Involved

Do you know the kind that gets so involved in a sports event, that they have an emotional reaction to it? If their team wins, then they feel good, if their team loses, it can literally cause a heart attack. In fact one name comes to mind right away: Mike Ditka

He is still referred to as “Coach”, because of the time that he put on the field. He was known as the overly-emotional Chicago Bears coach for years on end. He would get so emotionally involved in the game that he was ordered by his doctor’s to stay away from coaching. Not only was he ordered by his doctors to stop coaching, the advice given to him was to refrain watching, or even listening to the game on the radio!

All of us know someone that is affected in a negative way by an event, that really doesn’t alter their life at all. They let outside occurences affect their mood, their happiness, and ultimatelly their life experience. This is one stress that has an affect on our health and well being. This stress negatively affects our nerve system. In fact, I agree with BJ Palmer, the great Chiropractor of Davenport, IA that found 85% of all subluxations being caused by emotional stress.

So, lighten up a bit. Your health depends on it. After-all, it’s just a game to you. At least the coach had a reason to be so attached to the game…his career depended on it!
