The 5 steps to Psychological Resilience

"Psychological Resilience is defined as an individual's ability to successfully adapt to life tasks in the face of social disadvantage or highly adverse conditions"

Why am I talking about this today? Well... I never heard this word before... weird, I know!

Talking to a nurse at the hospital we were discussing how the mind and the psychological health can completely change and help your health and situation. And she then talked bout resilience... so of course I had to go check it out...

"Resilience is the ability to bounce back from a negative experience with competent functioning".

The great news is that resilience can be learned by nearly anyone!! Yuppeeeee!! Let's see how to do this...

1. Never Give up!

Try, try, try and try some more to get where you want to get. Regret might be larger than the challenges to get there.


It's okay to fail... don't ever let fear of failure stop you from achieving what you want. By failing you can learn something, by giving up, you have actually learned nothing! Move forward towards your goal, move slowly, move fast... as long as you move, you will change your starting point if you fall and that point will be closer to your goal.

3. Balance your emotions

You do not need to have a perfect life to be resilient. We all have negative experiences, it all comes down to HOW we manage to deal with them, to HOW we see and live the experience. Your internal sense of balance is constantly disrupted by stress, work, people, traffic, television, news, etc... We are ALL subject to that. The trick is to keep your balance both mentally, physically and spiritually, and to keep a coherent mind.

4. Positive adaptation

Create your own little "safety net", your "happy place": it can be a thought, a place, a picture... anything you can use to balance negative emotions with positive ones. Anything that can make you feel calmer, safer, happier.


Do I really need to explain this? Just fall... and UP you go!

with love,
