Treating Others Well

The hallmark of emotional well being is how you treat others. If you treat other people with compassion and kindness then you are emotionally doing well.

This basically means that you are ready to lend your hand to help someone in need and this could be the smallest of gestures, like smiling at someone when greeting that person.
