Definition

Psychological resilience is defined as an individual's ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity. Stress and adversity can come in the shape of family or relationship problems, health problems, or workplace and financial worries, among others.[1] Resilience is not a rare ability; in reality, it is found in the average individual and it can be learned and developed by virtually anyone. Resilience should be considered a process, rather than a trait to be had.[2]

What do you need to be resilient?

To be resilient you need to experience 8 of 10 emotions on a regular basis:

  1. Joy
  2. Gratitude
  3. Serenity
  4. Interest
  5. Hope
  6. Pride
  7. Amusement
  8. Inspiration
  9. Awe
  10. Love

These don't always find you. You have to be pro active in seeking them out!

Take time to think. Do you feel these emotions regularly? Why not? What can you do (more of) to feel these? What do you need to stop doing to feel these?
