What do you need to know about emotional wellness?

Emotional wellness is a combination of positive and negative emotions, and most importantly how you choose to deal with them. How you manage your emotions can have a significant effect on your interactions, relationships and mental health. Emotional wellness is about how you react to stress, and changes you can adopt to successfully cope with the stress and challenges that you might encounter on a daily basis.
