Resilience — the ordinary magic

How to become more resilient

  1. Connection — this includes strategies such as prioritizing relationships and joining a group.
  2. Wellness — having a healthy body (aka self-care), avoiding substance abuse and taking up practices like mindfulness.
  3. Healthy thinking — accepting that challenges will happen, learning from past experiences and maintaining a positive outlook that embraces change.
  4. Meaning — being proactive, making progress against your goals, finding opportunities for self-discovery and helping others.
