Unlocking the Power of Emotional Wellness

At Aegis Therapies, we believe anyone can achieve new levels of wellness – no matter who they are, what path they take to achieve it or where they call home.

Wellness isn’t just one-dimensional.  It is a complete way of looking at our health and how we maintain it.  It’s a philosophy of prevention, not treatment.  Fully engaging in life within all seven dimensions of wellness, emotional, environmental, intellectual, physical, occupational, social and spiritual will promote health and wellness.

Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully hanEmdle life’s stresses and adapt to change and challenging times.  It is defined as self-acceptance, self-esteem, resilience, and the ability to manage strong emotions.  It is being kind to yourself as you recognize and experience a wide range of emotions.

Signs of Emotional Wellness

  • Feeling good about who you are and what you do
  • Saying “no” when you need to without the feeling of guilt
  • Having the ability to talk with someone about your feelings and concerns
  • Feeling content
  • Knowing when and how to relax
  • Having a solid network of support

Emotional wellness for older adults is vital to living a happier and healthier life.  It can help you bounce back from difficulties/injuries, decrease your stress and even boost your immune system.

You can promote your emotional wellness by using stress-relieving and muscle-relaxation exercises to feel your best. Some examples of emotional wellness activities you can implement daily:

  • Gratitude journaling
  • Walking outdoors
  • Practicing yoga or tai chi
  • Deep breathing
  • Meditation

Practicing emotional wellness can be easier when you practice these habits daily.  It will help you cope with life changes.  Managing stress, fostering positive social connections and taking care of mental health may help all older adults maintain good emotional well-being.
