What is Emotional Wellness 

Possessing a positive attitude and the ability to identify and express a wide variety of feelings in an appropriate manner. 

The emotional dimension of wellness involves developing awareness and acceptance of one’s feelings. It involves being attentive to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, whether positive or negative. It is the ability to understand oneself and adequately cope with the occasional disappointments, frustrations and challenges life brings. It encompasses optimism, self-esteem, self-acceptance and the ability to share feelings. Emotional wellness is a dynamic state, a continual process of change and growth that enables one to maintain satisfying relationships, deal with conflict and remain grounded during stressful times.
