What is Resilience?
Plainly put - resilience is our ability to 'bounce' back from periods of adversity and challenge.
When faced with life upheaval, natural disasters, stress at work or school, health concern, difficulties within relationships, resilience is what enables us to respond well to stress and recover in a more positive and forward focused manner, leaving us feeling stronger and better equipped to cope like never before.
The great news about resiliency is that it is something that CAN be developed - think of it like a muscle, that with practise and regular exercise we can become more able to deal with and respond well to the rigours of life.
We all have the ability to change.
Developing our innate resilience levels enable us to think flexibly, problem solve effectively, respond positively and take control of our life direction in a way that cultivates meaning and purpose. Embedding resilience means working in alignment and understanding of your mind, body connection. Utlizing this knowledge through evidence based tools and techniques to perform at the highest level in a manner which is beneficial and gentle, and not detrimental to our mental health and life ambitions.
Resilience is the tool for leaders, teams,educators, parents, children - everybody.It is fast becoming prevalent in business, education and the military and for good reasons. Laying resilience foundations gives us mental health tools that last a life time.
