How Well Are You?

Assess your Emotional Wellness

How well do you understand your feelings and express emotions in a constructive manner? Do you feel confident with your coping skills regarding stress and life’s challenges?

Read the following statements and answer to yourself how much each statement reflects you.

  1. I find it easy to express my emotions in positive, constructive ways.
  2. I recognize when I am stressed and take steps to manage my stress (e.g., exercise, quiet time, meditation).
  3. I am resilient and can bounce back after a disappointment or problem.
  4. I am able to maintain a balance of work, family, friends and other obligations.
  5. I am flexible and adapt or adjust to change in a positive way.
  6. I am able to make decisions with minimal stress or worry.
  7. When I am angry, I try to let others know in non-confrontational or non-hurtful ways.
  8. I experience positive emotions on a daily basis.
  9. I don't let my negative emotions control my actions. 
  10. I can recognize why my emotions are the way they are. 

If you answer “sometimes,” “rarely,” or “never” for any of the statements, there is room for improvement. You can check out these campus resources for help.
