Building Resilience

Uncategorized Sep 05, 2023

In Mindfulness at Work and Home, I describe resilience as that which “prevents you from disappearing down a black hole, folding in and giving up when things go wrong. It moves you from passive to active. From victim to warrior – or somewhere in-between. Resilience is the grit that helps you to get up and carry on in the hope that things will get better. It’s the capacity to adjust positively to difficult life circumstances.”

The good news is that more than five decades of research show that resilience is highly trainable. Moreover, the practice of mindfulness impacts resilience as it helps us to find a place of calm within ourselves and to be more in touch with our motivations and intentions. In short, mindfulness helps us to pause, step back, reflect, shift perspectives, create options, and choose wisely.
