Guest blog: Tips to build personal resilience
Executive Coach Beverly Landais provides some tips to build personal resilience in our guest blog.
Keep calm and build resilience reads the poster advertising the community events in a village near to where I live in Kent. There are exhibitions, demonstrations, fun activities and a social element. The tag line states building community resilience. Bravo!
Building personal resilience requires a similar set of approaches. Here are ten tips that will have a positive impact on your ability to deal with challenging situations:
- It is good to talk. Build a network of like-minded people who will support you through good times and bad.
- Raise your pulse. It doesn't matter what you do, just get moving. The effort will invigorate.
- Mind your mindset. Our beliefs and attitudes shape our reaction to events. Foster a growth mindset by seeing the effort as the key to success.
- Get enough rest. Sleep is a wonderful restorative.
- Mindful minutes. Practice living in the moment. It improves mood and clarity of thought.
- Drink enough water. A simple yet effective way to keep your brain and body in tip-top condition.
- Tame workload. Audit what you are doing. Use ditch, do, delegate to bring it under control.
- Keep breathing. Take a few minutes to breathe properly. Enjoy feeling composed through a focus on the breath.
- Be grateful. Reflect on three things that make you feel positive and happy.
- You are the CEO of your responses. Choose how you react. Reflect on the difference a measured approach has on your well-being and ability to cope.
