Just a few days ago somebody asked me what I actually meant when I used the term emotional health. Now I found this really interesting because this was someone that I would have considered to be pretty emotionally aware, tuned into both their own feelings as well as the feelings of others and emotionally sensitive and very empathic. From this conversation, I realized that there isn't really much of a common language or a vocabulary that defines emotional health or talks about it in a way that is widely understood.
We use the term mental health and of course we talk about physical health, but we very rarely talk about emotional health. And yet our emotions are absolutely integral to the way in which we relate and engage with our world.
