Emotional Wellbeing - Everyday wellbeing is about how we feel, think and behave. Nobody feels blissfully happy, thinks positive thoughts and behaves sensibly all the time, but if you are in a pretty good state of mind generally, it is much easier to enjoy life and cope with it's challenges.
Looking after your state of mind is just as important as taking care of your body, yet most of us manage our physical health far better than our mental health. As soon as we feel a physical ache or pain we generally try to do something about it, but when we find ourselves feeling very low or stressed and anxious we tend to think it is just part and parcel of life and don't do anything to improve the situation.
Of course, there are times when it's natural to feel sad or anxious, for example when you have suffered a loss or if you are adjusting to a sudden unexpected change. But if your mental balance is basically good, you are likely to cope better in a crisis and recover more quickly and fully.
