In both Positive Psychology and lay man terms, ‘resilience’ refers to cope with whatever life throws at you. It is the ability to face challenges and bounce back, even stronger and wiser than before.
A resilient person returns to normalcy by using their strengths and psychological capital like hope, optimism and self efficacy. Happy Ho organizes best Meditation and Tarot classes in Noida and Delhi NCR area in India.
Resilience is a skill that is learned over time; it’s not a personality trait. It is never too late to become resilient. One way to do this is to place your current issue in the scheme of bigger things and thus, see its actual severity or the lack thereof.
So next time you face a crisis, imagine you holding your issue in your hand. Now slowly zoom out of yourself, out of the building you live in, out of the city, out of the state, country and even continent. Then go beyond even the ozone layer till you reach the moon and can see the whole earth. Now assess the severity of your problem.
Zooming out often helps you gain perspective on your issues while not demeaning how you feel about them. It helps you understand how manageable your current crisis is. Once the seriousness reduces, you can now look at problem solving the situation and learning from it. Come out stronger and wiser!
