Being resilient generally means that you’re able to adapt in hard times, roll with challenges, and overcome other sorts of adversity in life. When you encounter stress, trauma or tragedy, resilience allows you to cope with adversity and keep functioning successfully, both psychologically and physically.
When you have resilience, you’re able to tap into your inner strengths and rebound more quickly from a setback or challenge, whether it’s a job loss, an illness, a disaster, a tragedy, family or relationship problems, workplace and financial stressors, or the death of a loved one.
In contrast, if you lack resilience, you’re more likely to dwell on problems, feel victimized, become overwhelmed, and turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms such as consuming too much caffeine, excessive drinking, compulsive spending or emotional eating.
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Strengthening and building your resiliency is possible.
Resilient people cope with stress in a positive way, they tend to live longer, have lower rates of depression, and are more satisfied with their lives than people who do not handle stress well in difficult situations.
