Managing your emotional health

Emotional health is an important part of overall health. But, it’s not the same thing as mental health. So, while the two terms are often used interchangeably, emotional health focuses on being in tune with our emotions, vulnerability, and authenticity.

Having good emotional health is a fundamental aspect of fostering resilience, self-awareness, and overall contentment. People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. But they are human and still feel stress, anger, and sadness. Thus, having good emotional health doesn’t mean you’re always happy or free from negative emotions. It’s about having the skills and resources to manage the ups and downs of day-to-day life. It means you’re aware of your emotional responses.

When you are aware of your emotional responses, you can deal with them, whether they’re positive or negative.

There are many ways to improve or maintain positive emotional health.

  • Be aware of your emotions and reactions.
  • Express your feelings in appropriate ways.
  • Think before you act.
  • Manage stress.
  • Strive for balance.
  • Take care of your physical health.
  • Connect with others.
  • Find purpose and meaning.
