Building resilience can assist you in managing stress, overcoming adversity, and taking pleasure in the better days to come, whether you are dealing with a personal, global, or a combination of the two. The world seems to be lurching from crisis to crisis lately. In addition to a variety of natural disasters, we have also experienced a global pandemic, profound changes in how we live our daily lives, economic uncertainty, political unrest, and social unrest. Then there are the traumas that people experience on a personal level, such as losing a loved one, deteriorating health, job loss, divorce, violent crime, or tragic accidents. This is a time of unheard-of struggle and upheaval for many of us. Whether a personal tragedy, a global emergency, or both have disrupted your life, going through difficult times can have a negative impact on your outlook, health, and mood. You might experience a sense of helplessness and stress and anxiety overload. You might be struggling to come to terms with everything you’ve lost, be overcome with a plethora of difficult, conflicting emotions, or be unsure of how to proceed with your life. You might even feel completely out of control of your life and helpless to stop whatever might happen next. There are ways to help calm the choppy waters and regain a sense of control even though there is no way to avoid sadness, adversity, or distress in life. Resilience is the capacity to deal with loss, change, and trauma—elements of life that, even before these extraordinary times, have always been inescapable. Building resilience can make it easier for you to deal with stressful situations, adapt to life-changing events, and recover from adversity and tragedy.
