International Stress Awareness Week: 4th-8th November 2019

The theme of International Stress Awareness Week 2019 is ‘Resilience’ and we have put together our top tips to increasing personal resilience, derived from our flagship ‘Excelling under Pressure: Mastering Personal Resilience’ Workshop

Resilience refers to how well you can cope with and bounce back from the inevitable challenges of life. Resilient people tend to be less impacted by challenging circumstances, maintain a more positive outlook and cope with stress more effectively.

Whether or not you are experiencing a tough time now or you want to better equip yourself to cope with the ever increasing demands of modern life, we trust you will find our five top tips to ‘Mastering Personal Resilience’ useful:

Day One: Assess your bridge!

Imagine a bridge that has too much weight and load applied to it. Regardless of how well constructed the bridge is, if the ‘demand’ exceeds the ‘resources’ every bridge on the planet will ultimately collapse. This is also true for every human being. Regardless of how mentally tough and resilient you are, we all have a breaking point. Recognise what the signs and symptoms are when your ‘resilience bridge’ is bowing and buckling, and consider what you can do to either alleviate the load, or strengthen the bridge with personal resilience strategies to better equip you to cope. Watch the video above for a more detailed explanation.The first step to mastering resilience is to know how well your bridge is coping and if action is required to either alleviate the load or to reinforce the bridge to better equip it to cope. Look out for the day 2 tomorrow with strategies to do just that!
