Building Resilience

Resilience can be seen as the ability to ‘thrive and survive’ in any situation.

The types of adversity that demand resilience can range from ‘daily hassles’ to major setbacks. As well as stressful life events such as divorce, redundancy, bankruptcy, illness or bereavement and perhaps even more severe trauma in some cases. Everyone is capable of being resilient. Become more so by developing appropriate coping strategies. Resilience employs fairly ordinary abilities such as problem solving, assertiveness and dealing with your thoughts and feelings.

Resilience is our ability to live in accord with our personal values, rather than eliminate unpleasant experiences. As Carl Jung said ‘What you resist persists’. Trying to control or avoid unpleasant feelings by negative habits such as eating, procrastinating, avoiding, withdrawing, distracting ourselves on social media, shopping, alcohol or prescription drugs to name a few, only adds to our stress in the long run.

Resilience consists of your ability to remain on course. Committed to your personal values. Despite facing adversity, challenging events and even setbacks.
