According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, one definition of resilience is “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change”. Usually, there are many times when one may have to employ resilience, as there are many circumstances in one’s life that cannot be controlled. Additionally, many people often know that resilience is the best character trait to turn to in a scenario, but it is very hard to employ. For example, what if your phone gets broken or you have to change your evening plans to work on something you don’t want to do? The mature thing is to use resilience, but most people don’t want to.
So what are some practical ways to employ resilience in our everyday lives? Well first, start small. Instead of becoming angry or emotional when something doesn’t go your way, stop and take a deep breath. Perhaps do something for a bit that you enjoy doing. Doing things like this will prepare you for when you come across more difficult challenges. Then you will become a more resilient person, and others might even use you as their role model for resilience.
