Key Aspects for Living a More Resilient Life

As promised last time, I want to share some key factors in how to lead a more resilient life. Resilient people think differently. They use a set of skills, whether innate or learned, that allows them to persevere, to manage stress more easily, and to move through failure instead of getting stuck in it. Strengthening your resilience muscle will positively affect the quality of your life. The more you consciously choose to bounce back, the faster you will do so.

Here are a few factors to living a more resilient life: 

1) Have caring and supportive relationships within and outside the family. Relationships that create love and trust and provide positive role models offer encouragement and reassurance to help build a person’s resilience.
