Build resiliency by managing your stress.
Dr. Carol Wootton
McGrath and Noble define human resilience as the capacity to cope well with times of adversity or hardship, to be able to bounce back from difficult times to a fulfilling life, whilst at the same time retaining a positive sense of self – no small feat! The core skills of resilience are:
- optimistic thinking
- success orientation aimed at engaging our strengths
- emotional literacy
- reaching out and connecting with others and
- self esteem
