What is resilience?
Being resilient doesn’t mean you won’t experience adversity, but having resilience can buffer the adverse effects of stressful life events. Individuals who use a broad range of coping strategies and proactive self-care practices are often better able to deal with stressful life events.
Developing resilience is both complex and personal. It involves a combination of inner strengths and outer resources. There isn’t a universal formula for becoming more resilient. All people are different and you will need to work out what strategies and tools best support you during challenging times.
