Resilience is the ability to bounce back, overcome obstacles, work through a problem, get back on your horse.
Fall down seven times………. get up eight.
There are times we feel that we can’t just get up that last time. That’s when resilience comes into play. We have all experienced that feeling. It’s a powerful combination of tenacity, flexibility, and resourcefulness.
We can build resilience. By creating structure for your time, making connections with others, and keeping an optimistic and hopeful perspective are all contributors to resilience.
Structure for your day should include taking good care of yourself. This way you have the physical ability to bounce back. This includes a good bedtime to get a good night’s rest, proper nutrition including lean protein, and moderate exercise regularly.
Staying connected to others is important. The vitality of others makes you more energized too! Ask for help when you are finding solutions to work through a problem and gather resources that will make that decision easier. Be one to offer help and be about others in working to better the world around you, such as by volunteering or small acts of kindness.
Your perspective can make the biggest difference! In a recent speaking engagement, several audience members came up and mentioned that they realized they are MORE organized than they thought! Optimism and positivity spring from gratitude. Find small ways you are grateful daily, whether it is writing in a journal or reviewing this mentally as you drive around town. Joy and happiness can come from the smallest of moments, whether seeing a beautiful sun rise, smelling a fresh flower, spending time with a friend, or sitting quietly. Bundle all of this together and out springs hope! That is when resiliency blooms!
Resilience is not only a matter of perspective, it’s also a matter of organizational strengths. Having strong organizing skills makes it easier for you to be resilient.
