Be Present Tip:

It’s easy to get carried away with your feelings. Kids try your patience, your “to do” list is growing and you’re completely worked up – sometimes all before breakfast. Today, see if you can honor any feelings that bubble up. Notice if you’re feeling afraid, angry, sad, frustrated or exhausted. Instead of being overwhelmed with feelings, you can pause and pay attention to your breathing while observing your feelings. Notice if you are holding tension in your neck or worry in your tummy. This will help you respond with intention rather than react. You may find you have more control over your behavior after witnessing your emotions. 

Emotional Wellbeing focuses on your ability to experience, recognize and express a full range of emotion, and channel these emotions in healthy and effective ways. Your emotional health can effect all eight dimensions of wellbeing so it is important to understand where you are emotionally and what tools are available to help improve your emotional wellbeing.

Try this Emotional Wellbeing Assessment today to gain a deeper understanding of your current emotional wellbeing and find ways to improve this dimension of wellness!
