Resilience & Stress Management

“When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realize that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives. "

Resilience is the ability of a person to adjust to adversity, maintain their equilibrium, hold on to some sense of control over their environment and move forward in a positive manner. Some people cope with stressful situations better than others, mainly due to being more resilient. These people thrive whilst others around them crumble under the pressure. But the good news is that resilience is not a fixed entity and isn’t something that a person is blessed with, or not. It can be taught, and the workplace is an ideal place for people to learn to build their resilience.
