Emotional Wellness

Being emotionally well means being attentive to one’s positive and negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and navigating successfully through the stresses of living. An emotionally well person takes an alert and optimistic approach to life, deals with stress and change with composure, expresses feelings freely and effectively, and enjoys life in spite of occasional disappointments.

To acquire emotional wellness, one seeks personal development, accepts a diversity of ideas and emotions in oneself and others, and maintains an awareness of personal limitations and the value of seeking support. As part of this process, one also forms relationships based on mutual respect and trust and nurtures a positive, responsible approach to life.
