Mastering Resilience

Mastering Resilience

Do you know of someone who keeps on keeping on, no matter what life throws at them? You begin to wonder how they thrive and become even stronger as they overcome the obstacles they face. To face these challenges and still thrive takes resilience. At first glance, resilience can seem a lot like learning to grin and bear it or avoiding trauma and resisting change. It is not. In fact, resilience is a learned pattern of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Life can be incredibly difficult and emotionally and physically trying. Some people are able to overcome these challenges while others do not have the resources or ability to push through. The ability to keep overcoming life's hardships is referred to as resilience. This article will outline several ways you can learn to develop your mental toughness through mastering resilience.

How To Build Resilience

At some point in your life, you will have your emotional strength and stability tested when going through a difficult time. For some of us, these hardships come more often than others. It could be the loss of a loved one, an injury or illness, or an unexpected shift in a career. Building resilience gives you the tools to adapt to, manage, and recover from this kind of adversity. Life coaches and wellness coaches can help you develop these tools to help you become mentally stronger and to find balance in your life, even when things are tough. To help yourself bounce back from adversity, try these techniques: 

Stress Reduction Methods

When you are going through a tough time in your life, you can experience a lot of stress. This stress can prevent you from overcoming your hardships. To help reduce stress in your life in a healthy manner, incorporate meditation, yoga, exercise, or visualization. These methods will help you learn to manage unnecessary stressors and minimize necessary ones. 

Learn Healthy Coping Skills

To help build up your resilience, find something that will give you a period of peace and tranquility from negative thoughts during stressful times. Healthy coping skills may include:

  • Spending quality time with friends and family
  • Therapy
  • Spirituality
  • Participating in a hobby to occupy your spare time

Be Self Aware

Getting to know yourself will give you insight into your strengths and weaknesses and help you set realistic goals. Self-awareness will allow you to see what you might need to change about yourself or improve upon. Greater self-awareness will give you the ability to keep things in perspective so you can stop overstressing in minor situations while making things better when possible. 

Resilience Factors

There are a number of factors that contribute to building resilience. Life coaches will give you the tools to adapt and encourage you to develop so you can become the strongest version of yourself mentally. Some resilience factors include:

  • Problem-solving skills
  • Great communication skills
  • Better self-esteem and confidence
  • The ability to set realistic goals for yourself
  • Learning to connect with others
  • Successfully manage emotions and impulses
  • Accept and adapt to unexpected change
