Emotional Wellness is the ability to understand our emotions and to be able to cope with the challenges that life may bring at any time. It’s important to accept one’s own feelings, consider the feelings of others, take an optimistic approach to life, and have the ability to cope with stress in healthy ways.
Here are some ways to stay emotionally healthy:
Establish boundaries throughout all aspects of your life
Take some time just for yourself
Acknowledge and share your feelings
Ask for help, and if you need help, reach out to someone and talk.
Find resources and information to support your emotional wellbeing.
