During National Wellness month, check in with yourself to consider how you are doing emotionally. Emotional well-being is about realizing your potential by taking steps to manage distractions, cope with stress and face the everyday challenges in your life. It’s about learning how to create a sense of balance.

Many of us are dealing with anxiety or depression, working through grief or may be facing a serious or chronic mental health challenge. If you can find a sense of emotional balance, you are able to better manage these challenges and become more resilient.

Albertsons provides a variety of benefits and programs to help you find emotional balance and build resilience to help you cope with day-to-day challenges and any big life changes that come your way.
