How to be More Resilient

b2ap3_thumbnail_Fotolia_2777866_XS.jpgThe road to greater well-being is rarely a straight path. Often our journeys take us up, down, and around. Sometimes it may even feel like we are going backwards! Parts of this last week felt like that for me.

No matter how much we plan, we don't know what Life has in store for us. While that can be unsettling, the good news is that there are lots of tools and practices that can help us weather the stress of unpredictability.

This morning I made a quick video about three resiliency practices that stood out for me this week:

  • Have a "rainy day" fund — You never know when you will have less income or more expenses, so heed the wisdom of financial advisors and make sure you have enough accessible resources to cover four to six months of your normal expenses.
  • Practice forgiveness and acceptance, of yourself and others — Consider the possibility that most of us do the best that we can, with what we "know", in any given moment. Grant space for yourself, others, and Life to be just as you, they, and it is occurring.
  • Practice more self-care during challenges (not less) — It may be counter-intuitive, but you need extra TLC when you're stressed. Take a deep breath and step off that gerbil wheel! Click here for some great TED talks about self-care, and here for one of my earlier posts on how to make a self-care kit.

Here's the video:
