In today's fast-paced world, challenges and obstacles are part of the journey. We've all experienced moments of doubt and adversity, especially in the face of the "new normal." It's only natural to question how to navigate these trying times and emerge stronger and more resilient.

Here are some key strategies to help when it comes to redefining resilience and believing that you have what it takes to push forward. 


Understanding Resilience

Life is unpredictable, and we all face various challenges, from daily hurdles to more significant life-altering events like the loss of a loved one, a life-changing accident, or a serious illness. These events bring a whirlwind of emotions and uncertainty, but one concept shines through—resilience.

Resilience is the ability to adapt to adversity, trauma, and stress, enabling us to bounce back from life's toughest moments. It's the foundation for personal growth and transformation, allowing us to face life's challenges head-on.

Here are a few ways to help you build your own resilience.

1. Remove Self-Doubt

Self-doubt can be a formidable obstacle to resilience. It's essential to silence the inner critic and trust your abilities.

Overthinking and self-doubt can hinder progress. To break free, focus on positive self-talk and create a daily mantra that reinforces your confidence.



2. Find Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many forms, and it's a personal journey. Whether it's through podcasts, exercise, or a visit to an art gallery, find what inspires and energises you.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a movie like Independence Day that helps you feel like you can beat the odds, or a podcast that offers you great knowledge or advice - as long as it helps you remain lifted and motivate to do what you want to accomplish.

3. Embracing "No"

Saying "no" is a powerful act of self-respect. I

Those with low self-esteem often run into the situation where they are trying to please everyone. Our self esteem can be bolstered by helping others, which is one reason we are always willing to make sure that others around us are fulfilled. If we make others happy, or make sure that others like us, that it will somehow make US happy.

Most of the time, it’s the opposite.

The unfortunate truth is that there are many individuals that can detect when you have low self-esteem and will do everything they can to manipulate you, so that your lack of self-esteem works in their favour.

They might be the type of individual who can’t pick up the phone when you call, but will always expect you to do the same.

They might be upset when you can’t make it to an agreed catch up, but see no problem with flaking out on you.

If you find that someone is only ever contacting you for a favour - saying no can actually help to lift you. 

Setting boundaries and saying "no" can boost self-esteem and self-respect.

4. Celebrating Achievements

Every once in a while, it’s important to step back and take stock of your own accomplishments. Even if you aren’t where you planned, it can certainly help you to realise that how far you've come.

Be grateful for the opportunities and growth you've achieved. This can help to fuel the idea that you have come so far and have so much more to accomplish, which will help you to move ahead.

Gratitude for your journey and growth can fuel your motivation to keep moving forward

Practices like mindful journaling, yoga, and meditation can help build neurological connections that support resilience. When you journal and meditate on positive aspects of your life and recall the things you’re grateful for, this can help you to resonate with the positive aspects of your life. 

5. Prioritising Self-Care 

Self-care is not just a buzzword; it's essential for mental wellness and resilience.

Stress affects both the mind and body.

Promoting positive lifestyle factors like good nutritionprioritise sleephydration, and regular exercise can strengthen your body to adapt to stress and reduce the effect of anxiety or depression.

We recommend building your own rituals, routines and self care practices and defining what makes you feel happy and builds on your self esteem to maintain your resilience.
