I have come to love the word to the extent that I want it branded on my wrist. I do not claim to be resilient, but I wish to be, not someday, but today. Life has harden me in ways, I’ve lost faith on certain things, and those are no signs of resiliency. In spite of all the spirit I’ve lost, I’m determined to preserve what remains.
Best Ways to Build Resiliency
Pump Up Your Positivity
Resilient people, on the other hand, tend to find some silver lining in even the worst of circumstances. While they certainly see and acknowledge the bad, Fredrickson says, “they’ll find a way to also see the good. They’ll say, ‘Well at least I didn’t have this other problem.’”
Live to Learn
The more you can leverage challenges as opportunities to grow and evolve, the more resilient you are likely to be.
Open Your Heart
When adversity strikes, gratitude for the things that are going right in your life helps put tragedy in perspective.
Take Care of Yourself
Good health — and a regular routine of healthy habits — are foundational to both mental and emotional resilience.
*Hang on to Humor
Laughing in the face of adversity can be profoundly pain relieving, for both the body and mind.
