What is emotional health? It encompasses mental health issues like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, addiction, and other conditions. But being emotionally healthy also means managing day-to-day issues like stress, making and keeping friendships, changing bad habits, and using your creativity, all of which can have an impact on your physical health. Total health depends on a healthy mind as well as a healthy body, so it's important to take the time to nurture both.

Emotional Health Basics

Understanding emotional health means paying attention to your overall happiness and well-being. Being emotionally healthy also involves maintaining control of your thoughts and feelings.

They also recognize the power of spirituality and the value of staying positive.
