We hear this word being bandied about a lot recently but what does it really mean? And how do you develop it? It can seem really hard to think how to develop this.
Resilience - noun: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
So, it’s the ability to bounce back from quickly from difficult circumstances. Whether that is the pressure of exams, needing to work and help at home, or discovering you must move to a new house again. All these situations and many others can be very stressful and mean that when we have several different things going on that are challenging it and become overwhelming.
Resilience is maybe sometimes feeling down, stressed, or anxious but knowing that we will not feel like that forever and not giving up. Knowing that we will feel better again and quickly getting back to being our normal selves.
