    Re: Morale

    "Her morale was getting better" is the best of the examples, although I would be more likely to say "Her morale was improving".

    Re: Morale

    I agree, and whatever 'spiritual health' is supposed to mean, it's not the same as 'mood and morale'.

    Re: Morale

    I would also say "Her morale was raised" or "Her morale was rising".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
