What is Emotional Well Being?

5th March 2019

That’s a very good question and one that we gets asked all of the time. Our answer to the question ‘what is emotional well being?’ is that it can be described as a positive mental attitude that allows people to reach their potential, overcome challenges and enjoy life.

Positivity comes and goes, no one feels on top of the world 100% of the time;  we should embrace the variety of emotions we have and not be afraid to display them.

Feeling low, from time to time is normal and not a depressive condition;  Its more likely that you are tired, or have had a particularly heavy week, which results in feeling a little flat.
