What is Emotional Wellbeing?

Emotional well-being, or emotional wellness, is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to different crises in life. Emotional wellness further impacts your ability to carry out daily tasks, relationships, and even your overall mental health. People with high emotional wellness have the ability to navigate their moods effectively and respond to stressful life events with less reactivity. They also reported living with a sense of meaning and purpose. 

Factors that Influence Our Emotional Wellbeing:

Multiple factors impact our emotional wellness, most involving how we view and interpret the world. For instance, keeping a positive mindset can aid in experiencing fewer negative emotions and in “bouncing back” from a stressful event. Taking care of our internal balance, as well as appreciating differences, can also contribute to our emotional well-being. We cover more ways to take care of our emotional health below.
