Your wellness needs some help
You scored a 14-21, meaning you have a hard time focusing on your emotional wellness. Taking care of yourself can be challenging, but you cannot avoid it forever. Over time, your body is going to demand that you rest and take a break, so it is best to have these practices already established in your life. The most important thing you can do for yourself is just start.
Suggestions to help you enhance your emotional wellness:
Start with Basics: Focus on fundamental aspects of emotional wellness, like understanding your emotions, managing stress, drinking more water, and getting good sleep. Notice when you feel the most emotional. Do you feel more emotional when you are hungry, if you did not get enough sleep, or when you are around certain people? Keep track of what is happening with a simple journal and find new ways to manage those emotions and avoid certain situations.
Establish a Routine: Work towards establishing a simple, consistent self-care routine that includes activities you enjoy. Draw a picture, color alone or with the kids, take a walk, or focus on breathing at a certain time of day. Set an alarm on your phone or add it to your calendar as a reminder to make your wellness activities become routine.
Seek Support: Consider asking for help or support from friends, family, or professionals who can provide guidance and encouragement. Spend time with friends and family who bring you joy and positivity. Or you can ask someone to watch the kids for a short time while you spend time alone (you do not have to do anything but be by yourself). Talking to a therapist is a wonderful way to discover and resolve issues that may be holding you back from progressing in life.
Be Kind to Yourself: Remember that change takes time. Be patient and kind to yourself as you work on improving your emotional wellness. When you find yourself slipping up, remember that this journey is a marathon, not a sprint. It is okay to make mistakes. Take a breath, give yourself a big bear hug, and try again.
Remember, emotional wellness is a journey, not a destination. It's important to regularly reassess and adjust your practices as your life and emotions change. This quiz can be a tool for periodic self-reflection to help guide you on your path to emotional well-being.
