Here are 6 key elements to resilience:
Be optimistic. Even though you may be facing difficult times, try to look outside ‘the box’ to see the positives rather than just focusing on negatives.
It’s important to build good relationships with others, including family and friends because accepting help and support from those who care about you will strengthen your resilience.
Don’t keep your worries to yourself. Talk to someone you trust and feel safe with.
You can’t stop stressful situations but you can change how you feel, think and therefore what you do about them.
Look at how you managed difficult situations in the past to help you handle future challenges.
Trust yourself and be creative with solutions.
Set yourself goals and challenge yourself by trying something new.
Pay as much attention to your emotional and mental health as you do your physical health.
Never give up. Keep trying, recognise small successes and be creative.
If one way isn’t helping you to reach your goal, be ready to try something different.
