Wellness Resource Guide: EMOTIONAL WELLNESS

INTRODUCTION TO EMOTIONAL WELLNESS

EMOTIONAL WELLNESS RESOURCES

Aristotle wrote that emotions “are all those feelings that so change men as to affect their judgments and that are also attended to by pain or pleasure." *  Although there is not agreement, most writings conclude there are 5 basic emotions: joy (and its negative counterparts unhappiness, stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness) fear, sadness, disgust, and anger. 

This section identifies resources that describe how emotions impact our lives, our relationships, and our decision-making, and how we can strive for emotional wellness by recognizing and counter-acting emotions that do not promote wellness through  resilience, empathy, anger and stress management, forgiveness, gratitude, positive relationships.
