Emotional wellness is making sure your mind and heart are being taken care of as much as you are taking care of your physical body. This, more than any other wellness can lead to very unhealthy lifestyle choices, i.e. weight gain, depression, and loss of enthusiasm for life. Emotional wellness includes increased awareness, expression and acceptance of a wide range of thoughts and feelings in yourself and in others. Emotional wellness also helps you to obtain positive self-esteem, healthy relationships, and mental and emotional resistance to challenges you might face in life.
