Emotional wellness includes your thoughts, emotions, and ability to deal with life's challenges.


Signs of Emotional Wellness

  • Having the ability to talk with someone about your emotional concerns and share your feelings with others
  • Saying "no" when you need to without feeling guilty
  • Feeling content most of the time
  • Feeling you have a strong support network i.e. people in your life that care about you
  • Being able to relax
  • Feeling good about who you are

Check in with your emotional wellness: 

  • Do you see stress as something you can learn from or something to avoid?
  • Are you aware of you bodily sensations, emotions, and behaviors when you are stressed?
  • Do you allow yourself to experience emotions, just as they are? 
  • How do you care for yourself on a daily basis?
  • Are you able to ask for help when you need it?
