Psychological Wellbeing refers to your over all functioning in relation to your feelings. It is about how we think, how we feel, how we behave, how life affects us and how we cope with it, how we engage with others and the choices that we make. The key components to positive psychological well being are positive emotions, sense of purpose, engagement in activities, relationships, accomplishment and achievement.
Common mood problems include depression, anxiety, anger and stress. Below, you can find a presentation on ways in which you can help manage your mood.
