What is emotional wellness? Emotional wellness is your ability to power through life's challenges, find joy in your work and life, decrease negative thoughts, increase positive emotions, and achieve success in your career and everyday life.
Emotional wellness is a lot more than a few minutes of meditation, mindfulness, or even physical health. True emotional wellness, especially for today's highly stressed and burned out workforce, requires a set of learnable mental skills like resilience, optimism, emotional intelligence, self-efficacy, and more

HERE'S A LISTING OF THE 18 EMOTIONAL WELLNESS COURSES:
COURSE #1: OPTIMISM
People high in optimism have a positive outlook and expect that they're going to experience positive emotion and favorable outcomes. Optimists will actively work to generate well-being for themselves (and often for their friends and colleagues). They can avoid negative thoughts and focus on the bright side. As Winston Churchill once said, "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." Research has shown that optimism can help reduce a person's stress, increase longevity and physical health. That, in turn, often leads to a lower feeling of worry and anxiety and can even help avoid a future mental health problem.
COURSE #2: INTERNAL LOCUS OF CONTROL
People with a high internal locus of control believe that they control their own success or failure; that success or failure is not the result of chance or fate. By contrast, having a low internal locus of control (also known as having an 'external' locus of control) would mean that one attributes success or failure to factors outside of their control. Behavioral health research has found that people with a high internal locus of control typically experience more career success, better health, less anxiety, and lower stress.
COURSE #3: SELF-EFFICACY
People high in self-efficacy are confident in their ability to succeed and meet the challenges ahead of them (e.g. in our job, on the next project, etc.). Albert Bandura, the psychologist who developed the concept, called self-efficacy "belief in one's agentive capabilities, that one can produce given levels of attainment." Research has shown that people high in self-efficacy are more successful at quitting smoking, eating in a healthy way, overcoming life's challenges, controlling pain, and exercising more.
COURSE #4: SELF FORGIVENESS
People high in self-forgiveness evidence the ability to forgive themselves for mistakes. It doesn't mean that they don't acknowledge their mistakes, rather they are able to stop engaging in unhealthy behaviors like chronic self-criticism. Research has shown that people who struggle with self-forgiveness are more likely to experience eating disorders, alcohol abuse, and more. Being unable to forgive oneself can lead to a spiral of negative emotions and poor emotional balance.
COURSE #5: OTHER FORGIVENESS
People high in other-forgiveness change their negative thoughts, feelings, and behaviors about transgressors to at least neutral and perhaps positive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They're less likely to avoid contact with their transgressors, less likely to seek retribution, more likely to act in a benevolent manner, and have better social wellness. Research has shown that people high in other-forgiveness typically experience fewer negative physical health symptoms (like disorders of the cardiovascular or immune system) and fewer negative mental health symptoms (like anger and depression).
COURSE #6: EMOTIONAL AWARENESS
People high in emotional awareness are able to accurately observe, correctively interpret and correctly predict why and how others will act and react. This aspect of emotional intelligence has many obvious benefits in the workplace, including increasing influence, gaining agreement, effectively negotiating, managing people, and more. And in general, research has viewed emotional awareness (and emotional intelligence) as more predictive of career success than other forms of intelligence like IQ.
COURSE #7: RESILIENCE
People high in resilience are better able to bounce back quickly from failure, adversity, grief, stress, relationship problems, health issues, and more. Having high resilience does not mean that we don't experience failure, distress, pain, depression or sadness (in fact, developing resilience can often mean experiencing those things). However, resilient people generally don't see a crisis as an insurmountable problem; they manage their negative feelings. They're not necessarily any better at eliminating or avoiding difficult times, but they do interpret and respond to difficult times differently than people with low resilience.
COURSE #8: PERSEVERANCE
People high in perseverance continue to work hard and pursue their goals regardless of the roadblocks and obstacles that get in their way. While resilience is bouncing back quickly from adversity, perseverance is continuing to work or achieve despite adversity, difficult times, stress, etc. Whether through experience or mindset, people high in perseverance often view obstacles as less significant (and more surmountable) than others would. This type of coping
COURSE #9: BENEFIT FINDING
People high in benefit finding derive positive growth from adversity or tough times. In essence, they emphasize the positive consequences of negative events (in other words, they find the good in the bad). Counseling research has found that people high in benefit finding tend to experience greater emotional well-being, and benefit finding can predict health outcomes months or years later. Studies have also found that benefit finding can increase spiritual wellness, mitigate depression, foster more healthy relationship with loved ones, and improve coping.
COURSE #10: FUTURE FOCUS
People high in future focus are thinking about, and anticipating, the future (of their career, their company and even their industry). They tend to be more aware of, and less surprised by, change initiatives and strategic shifts in their company, and market shifts in their industry. And they're more likely to see new opportunities (e.g. projects, jobs, etc.) before their peers. As a result, they're more likely to be happy with the current trajectory of their career.
COURSE #11: MEANING
People high in meaning find their work interesting and important. And as we might expect, people high in meaning tend to be significantly more inspired in their jobs. They're more likely to stay with their current employer, more likely to give their best effort at work, and more likely to recommend their employer to others.
COURSE #12: PROACTIVITY
People high in proactivity are generally self-starting and act before it's demanded of them (as opposed to waiting for a directive). In the world of work, proactive personalities generally achieve more. In one study, researchers found that proactivity was significantly correlated with having a higher salary and a more prestigious occupation. Researchers studying a retail chain found that employee proactivity was directly linked to those employees developing more creative ideas to help the company.
COURSE #13: STRIVING
People high in striving reach for goals that are bolder and more audacious than most. This is a trait shared by the late Steve Jobs, who said "We attract a different type of person: Someone who really wants to get in a little over his head and make a little dent in the universe." People high in striving don't want to work on small easy issues, they want to tackle the big issues and 'make a little dent in the universe.' While high levels of striving are not a guarantee of success, there is a significant positive correlation between striving and reaching the executive ranks of an organization.
COURSE #14: AMBITION
People high in ambition are more likely to experience bigger achievements. Research has found, for example, that people with high ambition are more likely to achieve higher levels of education, job titles and salaries. Of course, ambition isn't all about salaries and job titles; ambition can be seeking growth-opportunities to expand our horizons, skills and competence. And as a corollary, people high in ambition tend to enjoy leaders, projects and feedback that others would consider tough.
COURSE #15: ASSERTIVENESS
People high in assertiveness are able to clearly express their needs, views, and boundaries. And they're more likely to get their requests fulfilled, and needs met, than those low in assertiveness. People high in assertiveness also generally experience less anxiety around making requests, having tough conversations, and saying 'no.' Research has found that assertiveness is often correlated with higher levels of self-esteem, and healthy assertiveness skills can even reduce conflicts and aggressiveness in the workplace.
COURSE #16: INNOVATIVENESS
People high in innovativeness are creative and unconventional thinkers, and are often able to solve even seemingly intractable problems. They are more likely to dislike steady routines, often enjoying when the environment or the work is constantly changing. They tend to like challenges and jump at the opportunity to try something new. They also tend to be flexible thinkers, and are willing to move 'outside-the-box' to look for solutions.
COURSE #17: PROBLEM SOLVING
People high in problem-solving are able to engage in cognitive problem-solving strategies, like planning, analysis and critical self-reflection. Because they generally exhibit greater control over their emotions as they tackle problems, research has shown that problem-solving correlates with a wide range of positive life, health and career outcomes. And studies have found that not only does problem-solving help improve life fulfillment, but that problem-solving can be enhanced and improved.
COURSE #18: LEARNING
People high in learning are constantly growing, intellectually and professionally. Research has found that people who are always learning new things are 10 times more likely to be inspired at work than those who are not. People high in learning listen to new ideas even if they seem radically different from their own (which may give them access to new and unique ideas). And people high in learning prefer to work on tasks/projects that force them to learn new things.
