What is resilience training – and how you can benefit from it?

The term resilience describes the ability to adapt to challenging situations like change, trauma, or a threat. People with high levels of resilience are not necessarily immune to stress or hardship, but they have the tools and resources to effectively cope with them and emerge stronger. They can manage their emotions, adapt to setbacks, and maintain a positive outlook even under pressure. Resilience training utilizes various methods and techniques to strengthen your resilience. These may include:

  • Relaxation techniques: Learn practices like deep breathing, meditation, and yoga to reduce stress and promote calmness.
  • Mindfulness: Learn to focus your attention on the present moment, gaining a deeper understanding of your thoughts and emotions.
  • Communication skills: Enhance your ability to effectively communicate your needs and feelings, fostering positive conflict resolution.
  • Problem-solving and coping skills: Develop the ability to identify and change negative thought patterns, improving your approach to challenging situations.

Why is resilience training important?

Resilience can help you with your relationships, your personal goals, and in your work life. You can benefit from it if you are…

  • experiencing a lot of change in your life, e.g., if you have recently experienced loss or if you are relocating
  • working long hours and/or in a challenging work environment
  • easily frustrated and feel you have a negative mindset toward certain topics
