Psychological Resilience is defined as:
‘An individual’s ability to successfully adapt to life tasks in the face of social disadvantage or adverse conditions’.
Adversity and stress can come in the shape of family or relationship problems, workplace or financial worries or a multitude of other things.
Resilience is like being a rubber band that has the ability to stretch in times of adversity then bounce back to its original shape. It relies on different skills and draws on various sources of help, including rational thinking skills, physical and mental health, your relationship with those around you, and more. When you have resilience, you harness inner strength that helps you rebound from a setback or challenge.
We can help you to identify the root of the issues & show you that having resilience is not necessarily about overcoming huge challenges; each of us faces plenty of challenges on a daily basis for which we must draw on our reserves of resilience. Resilience is about how we deal with those challenges and the way that affects us. If someone lacks resilience, they might dwell on problems, feel victimised, become overwhelmed or eventually turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms. Resilience is important because it keeps us on track until we reach our goals, it allows us to deal with difficult situations and it helps us to grow by encouraging us to look at the positives
However, it’s not about trying to carry on regardless of how we feel. Instead, it’s about understanding why we feel the way we do and developing strategies to help us deal with situations more effectively. More than five decades of research point to the fact that resilience is built by attitudes, behaviours and social supports that can be adopted and cultivated by anyone.These sessions offer and discuss ways to keep building reserves of resilience. We don’t assume one-size fits all as we are all individuals & participants will though definitely be able to learn about themselves, the way their brain works and many ways to aid their wellbeing, build their resilience and go forward more confidently.
This one-day workshop has been designed to help you discover the science of stress and resilience. Over the course of the day, you’ll become trained at adapting to adversity and developing your resilience muscle with our Resilience Toolkit. We’ll lead you through various exercises to help you decipher and harness the benefits of positive stress, all while discovering the profound effect of physical activity, mindfulness exercises, self-compassion and laughter on your wellbeing and emotional resilience. Once we better understand how and why our brains work as they do, we are then able to aid our day-to-day lives. When used regularly, the sustainable actions learnt will become habits and maintain good resilience and equip attendees with tools to draw on when times are tough.
