Your Ability to Bounce Back
Being resilient is being able to bounce-back from adversity or stressful events
What is Resilience?
Resilience can be defined as psychological, physical, emotional and mental. We develop resilience as we are exposed to stressful events and are subsequently able to recover from them or become better able to manage the stressor next time it occurs. Repeated exposure to hard exercise, extreme temperatures or challenging situations such as public speaking can assist in developing resilience.

What Does Improved Resilience Look Like?
Resilience could also be defined as personal sustainability; do you have the tools that enable you to cope with the rigours of daily life? When you get yourself into your discomfort zone, remarkable things happen. You demonstrate to yourself that you are able to achieve things and push past all your barriers. You defy what other people think you can achieve as well, and you derive enormous amounts of energy and strength from that.
How to Improve Your Resilience
The most democratically available, performance-enhancing strategy you can adopt for improved resilience.
Techniques such as breathwork and meditation help to manage good mental health, reduce blood pressure and resting heart rate, and develop better internal stress resilience.
Human beings were designed to withstand huge amounts of stress providing we get periods of recovery. Daydreaming, meditating, being out in nature or with loved ones are all great examples
Do Hard Things
Challenging our minds and bodies with stressful events can be positive for us – providing it’s not constant and you have the resources to cope. Exercise is a great example.
Do Hard Things
Knowing when to push and when to pull back is a valuable skill, but if you can tune into the signals your body sends you, you’ll know when the time is right for a challenge and that builds resilience
