Five Dimensions of Well-Being: Emotional


This dimension focuses on awareness and acceptance of stressors and feelings—positive or negative. Emotional well-being includes the ability to manage your feelings and related behaviors, cope effectively with stress, and adapt to change. There are practical ways to enhance mood, build resilience, and improve your response to life’s challenges. Just as effort is required to improve or maintain physical health, the same is true for emotional health.
