Building strong emotional resilience and coping techniques to deal with times of strife is key to looking after our wellbeing. Here are some top tips to developing mindfulness and resilience in these tough times:
This mind sound easier said than done, but shifting attention away from negative ruminations towards optimistic reflection can have a profound impact on how we deal with stress in these trying times. Try and spot the signs of when we are being overly negative, and instead focus on reflecting on what we are grateful for.
Developing emotional resilience does not happen overnight. Instead, it takes consistency and diligence to establish a mindset that can deal with the stresses and strains of life. Try to dedicate a bit of time every day to developing your emotional resilience – consistency is key!
Change is a natural part of life. Expecting the unexpected, that things are always likely to change, is key to developing a resilient mindset. Instead of trying to avoid negativity altogether, our goal is to cope effectively with whatever life throws at us.
