There are so many things that can influence our emotional wellness, often times being things that are out of our control such as a loss of a loved one or a disaster in life. With October being Emotional Wellness Month, it’s important to adopt habits and attitudes to help impact our emotional well-being.

Know Yourself

It’s important to set goals and expectations that are realistic for you. Overwhelming yourself with unrealistic goals for yourself and others will cause stress, anxiety, and a sense of failure. It’s OK not to do it all.

Accept and Make Changes

Change is inevitable. Learning to accept change, especially change out of your control, will lead you to a much happier life. It’s also important to incorporate change into your life if your emotional well-being is not where you want it to be. Taking responsibility for yourself and surrounding yourself with positive people and thoughts are all in your control. Why not take advantage of this to become happier?

Laugh, Love and Live

Laugh at yourself every once in a while to boost your immune system, ease pain, reduce stress, and relax.

Love yourself and your body. Your physical well-being and your emotional well-being directly influence each other. Remember to take care of both!

Live your life the way you want to. Don’t let stress, anxiety, or depression take away your happiness. Feeling this way is not shameful, but it’s important to get treatment if you need it.
