Emotional Wellness

Emotional wellness is probably what most people think of when they think of why someone would go to a therapist. While people enjoy positive emotions like happiness, excitement, love, and mirth, many of us try to avoid negative emotions. Negative emotions like anxiety, depression, grief, anger, and fear are normal and necessary but can be overwhelming. When these emotions begin to get in the way of achieving goals and overall wellness, it can be helpful to ask for support.

Emotional wellness is having the ability to experience and manage emotions in a healthy and productive way. Many mental illnesses like anxiety disorders and mood disorders cause a person to feel like their negative emotions are magnified and absolutely out of their control. However, you can learn coping skills and stress management skills to effectively manage emotions.

Stress management is another part of emotional wellness. Stress is normal and necessary but it does need to be managed. The human brain can only handle so much stress and can become overwhelmed. Learning how to manage stress is necessary to be able to handle other negative emotions.
