Highly resilient people are not necessarily hard charging, extroverted type A kind of people. In fact, the capacity to rest, process distressing situations and learn from mistakes (if any) means that resilient people know when to take a break. And they do so.
Another healthy habit is developing the skill set of being present in the moment with one eye on the future. After one takes stock of the past, makes notes and plans and develops practices that take into account past failures and upsets, resilient folks learn how to let go, get back to living life on life’s terms, stop ruminating and obsession and reject bitterness or despair as appropriate responses.
So breathe. But don’t vegetate.
How are you doing with these skills?
