We are emotionally well when we know our pressure points and how to adapt to them. Handling life’s ups and downs is more manageable when we’ve learned to accept that they happen. Oftentimes, we can make preemptive strikes against them by knowing whom and when to ask for help.
Emotional Wellbeing isn’t arriving at a place of perfection; it’s about progressively learning how you work, and healthy ways to navigate your life. The most important message to remember, but often a hard one to implement: Asking for help is a sign of strength.
Left alone, mental health issues don’t just go away. Other signs you may be struggling with emotional wellbeing are poor sleep, not being able to pinpoint your stressors, or not being able to identify healthy ways to cope.
