Emotional health plays a vital role in your overall well-being. When you have positive self-esteem, you feel good about yourself and your abilities. This can lead to greater self-confidence and resilience and you're more likely to pursue your goals, form healthy relationships, and handle life's challenges with optimism. Being able to manage stress effectively is also a key aspect of emotional health. And when you're emotionally resilient, you can adapt to change, cope with disappointments, and maintain a positive outlook.
