Reference Article: The Best Ways To Build Resilience
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Resilience is our ability to bounce back from adversity and misfortune, and if developed can help us in all aspects of our lives. Having to deal with difficult situations is a simple aspect of life, so being able to take them in our stride leads to a positive, courageous life. Below we look at a few ways to build resilience.
- Live to Learn
Actively seek out challenges and use them as opportunities to grow and learn. Constantly asking yourself the question “How can I solve this problem?” is key to building resilience.
- Practice self-care
Try to find 5 minutes each day to sit up straight and focus on your breathing. Journaling and other types of positive mental habits will also aid in your mental and physical resilience. Lastly, make sure you’re eating well and getting enough sleep.
- Hang on to humor
Comic relief is called so for a reason. Laughing in the face of adversity can be very empowering, and laughter can also help reduce tension to more moderate levels. Sometimes you need to let go and move on.
To summarize, actively seek out challenges and use them as ways to develop your resilience. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep and eating well, and if you feel a problem getting on top of you, figure out a way to not take it too seriously. Eat. Sleep. Laugh. Repeat.
