BUILDING YOUR RESILIENCE


Resilience involves maintaining flexibility and balance in your life as you deal with stressful circumstances and traumatic events.

This happens in several ways, including:

  • Letting yourself experience strong emotions, and also realizing when you may need to avoid experiencing them at times in order to continue functioning

  • Stepping forward and taking action to deal with your problems and meet the demands of daily living, and also stepping back to rest and reenergize yourself

  • Spending time with loved ones to gain support and encouragement, and also nurturing yourself

  • Relying on others, and also relying on yourself
