Resilience

How do you withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions? When you are faced with either a personal or professional trauma, the level of your resiliency will dictate your ability to quickly adapt and move forward.
Resilience is the capacity to recover from disruptive change. Strategies that produce or increase resiliency in the midst of change or trauma include:

  • Reframing  – change the way you look at something and you will change your experience of it. Reframing is telling yourself a new story that alters your perceptions of stressors and consequently can relieve significant stress.
  • Well-Being – take care of yourself physically and emotionally. Intentionally identify activities that you enjoy and do them. Exercise or move often, sleep and eat well. Practice stress management and relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, prayer or meditation. When you maintain your well-being though traumatic change your resilience increases.
  • Accomplishment – make every day meaningful. Do something that gives you a sense of accomplishment and purpose every day. Start small with three objectives each day to successfully complete. Goals help you look toward the future with meaning and recover more quickly.

Life is full of challenging changes. Apply these strategies to help you stay resilient through the trauma of change.
