How to achieve emotional wellness

How to achieve emotional wellness

When people ask me how I am, I’m not sure what they mean.

Are they just following social norms and niceties or are they really asking me about my overall well-being? I think it’s a social reflex; I definitely don’t think they want to know about my emotional state. But what does this really mean, how ARE we? How can we measure our well-being and does it relate to our physical, emotional or spiritual self? Who defines emotional wellness and is it a fluid and evolving concept? This week’s guest, Dr. Lawana Gladney, author of “If you’re in the driver’s seat, why are you lost? A Roadmap to an Amazing Life,” joins me in discussing what emotional wellness is and how to achieve it no matter what our circumstances are.
