Any adversity or significant change can have an unsettling impact on us, but, as we are all aware, dealing with a pandemic over the last year has been particularly difficult. Stress is a normal part of life, but we need to take steps to ensure that our responses to it do not start to have a negative impact on our mental and physical health.
Building resilience can help us to move from simply surviving through tough times to actually thriving. We can develop action plans to deal with stressful situations which in turn will have a positive impact on both our personal and work life.
Some of us are lucky to have a natural resiliency which helps us get through challenging times, but many of us do not. The good news is that we can build our resiliency. We just need to take action early before stress takes us over.
