Building Resilience | Navigate life’s obstacles

Resilience is the ability to cope with unexpected changes or challenges in your life. It is not always easy to bounce back if we hit a speedbump in life, but there are tools you can adopt to strengthen your ability to deal with life’s obstacles.

Stress and life’s trials are inevitable, and we cannot avoid them. It can be hard to deal with tough situations and we may need to learn how to cope with adversity.

Coping strategies can assist you in dealing with stress and maintaining control in your life. We are all different so it is about finding what works for you. Some great advice from healthdirect includes:

  • Taking time out to relax
  • Exercise or meditation
  • Breaking a challenge down into small, achievable goals
  • Celebrating achieving your goals
  • Keeping a journal
  • Thinking about the big picture.
