PURPOSE

Emotional Wellbeing is developing self-awareness of one’s feelings to be resilient, find balance and practice the behaviors that lead to a positive emotional state.

Emotional wellbeing is important for all individuals. Having good emotional wellbeing allows us to live and work towards being our best self in all areas of life. A few of the many work-related benefits of caring for your emotional wellbeing include reduced stress and risk of burn-out, increased happiness and job satisfaction, improved productivity and concentration, and improved co-working relationships.
