Emotional health and well-being, concepts once considered the realm of psychotherapy, have become business mantras that even large corporations are taking seriously. From tech giants like Google, Twitter and Facebook to "traditional" health insurance companies like Aetna, employees are being introduced to concepts like resilience, character strengths and meditation through their workplaces more than ever before. And for good reason.
On the face of it, the realm of emotional health, well-being and happiness may seem soft, vague or downright meaningless to business executives. It's only when we take a look at the mounting scientific evidence to the measurable benefits it offers, that we can appreciate the huge potential it holds in the workplace.
