Emotional wellness is an integral component of holistic well-being. This aspect of wellness involves being perceptive towards one’s sense of self-esteem (which can fluctuate depending on circumstances) and state of resiliency (which may require special attention during periods of trauma, grief and loss). It is characterized by a willingness to accept and appreciate a full spectrum of feelings – joyful, painful and everything in between – and to process these as a means of cultivating a healthy sense of self-awareness and perception in the emotional realm.
