Resilience: Recession Bell close: Are you prepared?” starts in.
Best Practice #1: First and foremost, let’s be present!
Frustration, anxiety, regret, and worry often come out when thinking about the past or future. Being present is essential for building resilience. It allows you to actually respond to thoughts and feelings in real-time.
Best Practice #2: Remember! Our target is progress, not perfection
Want to achieve emotional resilience? Your goal should be progressing, not perfection! Mrs. Brené Brown, the author of “The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are” explains that understanding the difference between healthy striving and perfectionism is critical to picking up your life. Researches show that perfectionism eliminates success. In fact, it’s often the path toward depression, anxiety, and addiction, but not towards resilience.
- Healthy striving is self-focused: How can I improve?
Best Practice #3: Anxiety is not a part of our personality
– I think I have anxiety.
– Are you sure it’s not just your personality?
Most of us in our daily interactions confuse anxiety with fear. Anxiety is the subjectively unpleasant feeling of anticipated events. People who face it, should withdraw from situations that have provoked anxiety in the past. Mind is a way towards resilience; a technique that may help people deal with stress and anxiety.
