ABSTRACT

A useful definition of emotional wellbeing is offered by the Mental Health Foundation: ‘A positive sense of wellbeing which enables an individual to be able to function in society and meet the demands of everyday life; people in good mental health have the ability to recover effectively from illness, change or misfortune.’

Some benefits of gaining greater emotional well-being include knowing that one’s needs are important and that individual deserve to have a life where he or she feel happy and secure. As individuals achieve emotional balance, they are able to identify their heart’s desires, take positive action, and make changes in own life.

Emotional well-being is a term that has seen increasing use in recent decades. The implications of decreased emotional well-being are related to mental health concerns such as stress, depression, and anxiety. These in turn can contribute to physical ill-health such as digestive disorders, sleep disturbances, and generally lack of energy (\"Emotional Well Being & Mental Health\", Harvard Health Publications). Enhanced emotional well-being is seen to contribute to upward spirals in increasing coping ability (Fredrickson et.al. 2002).
