What is Emotional Health?

Being “emotionally healthy” also means managing every day issues like work related stress, managing time, being involved with a busy family, making and keeping friendships, changing habits that may be unhealthy, and using your creativity, all of which can have an impact on your physical health. Total health and well-being depends on a healthy mind as well as a healthy body, so it’s important to take the time to foster both.

Emotional Health Basics

Understanding one's own emotional health requires paying attention to one’s overall happiness and well-being. Being emotionally healthy also involves recognizing and maintaining control of your thoughts and feelings. People with good emotional health are resilient in the face of challenges, find ways to express their creativity, and understand the importance of social connections. They also recognize the power of spirituality and the value of staying positive.
