Tips for maintaining emotional wellbeing

Mar 22, 2021 | SAMU Wellbeing, Zen Zone

Emotional wellbeing is the ability to practice stress-management techniques, be resilient and generate positive emotions. People with good emotional wellbeing are better able to deal with life’s challenges.

Some ways you can practice emotional wellbeing are:

  • Yoga or Mediation
    • Slowing down your mind and connecting with your body can relieve stress and anxiety and give you a different perspective to help address your worries.
  • Journaling
    • Journaling can include gratitude lists, following prompts, a stream of consciousness writing, art journaling or anything you want.
    • Journaling can promote emotional intelligence by helping you explore your emotions and where they come from and alleviate stress.
  • Online Resources like SAMU’s Peer Support
    • SAMU’s Peer Support service is great for when you just need someone to listen. Volunteers provide a confidential space for you to vent about whatever you need.
  • Online Therapy or MacEwan’s Wellness and Psychological Services
    • If you need more than just someone to vent to, there are options available such as online therapy.
    • MacEwan’s Wellness and Psychological Services also offer individual and group counselling sessions to students to help build emotional resilience skills.
  • Reach Out to a Close Friend or Family Member
    • Reaching out and talking to someone you trust about your troubles can provide you with emotional relief and a support system.
