Emotional Fitness refers to our ability to fully understand and use our emotional capacity to achieve high-performance.
Like a muscle, our emotions only support us if we use them. Hence good Emotional Fitness refers to being fully aware and in-tune emotionally, able to express and feel the full array of emotions. Not just being positive, able to handle and beneficially use negative emotions.
Research suggests real health benefits are associated with good Emotional Fitness, as well as inner confidence and self-esteem growth. In today’s video, Robert C Robertson defines Emotional Fitness and shares a personal example of emotional expression from a tennis match.
