Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, but also your capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing.
Resilience isn’t a personality trait – it’s something that we can all take steps to achieve.
Here are some things to think about and adjust:
Make some life changes. What is happening in your life that can affect you resilience.
Look after you physical health. Exercise is one if the best things to do whether it’s a slow walk or high impact activity.
Give yourself a break. Be kinder to yourself. Take break, have a holiday.
Build your support mechanism.
Remember whatever you are going through you do not have to go it alone.
