Words are powerful and can mean different things to different people.
We’re here to open the conversation and desmystify wellness buzzwords, ingredients, and everything in between.
Being emotionally well is typically defined as possessing the ability to navigate through a range of feelings and express human emotions such as happiness, sadness and anger. It means having the ability to love and be loved and achieving a sense of fulfillment in life. Emotional wellness encompasses optimism, self-esteem, self-acceptance and the ability to share feelings.1
Mental health is the condition of one's mental and cognitive state. It’s a dynamic state of internal equilibrium, made up of basic cognitive and social skills; the ability to recognize, express and modulate one's own emotions, as well as empathize with others; the flexibility and ability to cope with adverse life events and function in social roles; and the harmonious relationship between body and mind.
An inner strength that allows us to push through obstacles and bounce back time and again in order to do what is personally necessary to adapt to the events of life.
A confidence and healthy self-awareness that allows us to care for our own needs and approach other relationships with a sense of safety and comfort to nurture and be nurtured by others.
Self-care ≠ self-maintenance. Self-care is about engaging in activities that help you figure out and meet your own needs, find meaning, feel grounded and grow.
A belief that you are enough just as you are. It’s also the ability to give yourself the same love and kindness you give to others you care about. Self-worth is a lifelong journey of checking in with ourselves, knowing our needs and working to honor them. There is no one size fits all solution.
