Emotional Wellness

Learn healthy ways to understand and express your emotions.

About the Activities

Have you ever noticed that when you feel great you do great things? That’s no coincidence! Having positive ways to manage emotions can benefit a person’s physical and mental health, which could help them to accomplish goals.

This collection explores ways that emotions play an important role in each individual’s health and success. The activities will help teens gain an understanding of different ways to express feelings, the importance of resilience, and ways to use our positive thoughts to accomplish goals.

The Emotional Wellness collection was made possible by generous support from The Allstate Foundation and Ohio State University Extension.
