Bouncing Back From Adversity

Some people naturally bounce back from adversity, but everyone can build resilience to create a better life. How we think about adversity is an essential building block in developing resilience. For example, viewing adversity as something that will eventually end allows us to maintain hope for the future, which in turn encourages us to set goals. Goal setting helps us deal with adversity because when we plan for the future, we are better prepared to deal with any obstacles that arise. Resilience also requires us to cultivate our strengths. This can be difficult to do alone, which brings us to our final resilience building block- recruiting a strong support system. Resilient people talk to their friends, family, colleagues, counsellors, or life coaches about their feelings, worries, and dreams. Resilience contributes to our emotional wellness by helping us experience a greater sense of peace and life satisfaction.
