Wellness Challenge

Week 3: Emotional Wellness

Welcome to Week Three!

Week three is focused on Emotional Wellness - The emotional dimension of wellness involves developing awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. Emotional wellness is not an end stage but a continual process of change and growth. Emotional wellness enables one to maintain satisfying relationships, deal with conflict and remain grounded during stressful times.

Some practices that enhance emotional wellness include:

  • Recognizing conflict as potentially healthy
  • Becoming more aware of your feelings through reflection, journaling or other practices
  • Accepting your feelings and the feelings of others
  • Seeking support and guidance when feelings and emotions seem to be getting out of control
  • Building a strong social support network
  • Being open to continual personal development
