Developing your Emotional Resilience

    How would you define emotional resilience?  Most people agree that it refers to the ability to ‘bounce back’ during challenging times.  It certainly seems to be a useful trait to have.  But if you don’t feel particularly resilient, does it mean you can develop it?  Or do you have to be born resilient?

    The good news is that resilience is not an innate characteristic or personality trait that you either have or you don’t. It is a quality and a process that can be enhanced and developed.  It is something that we can all take steps to achieve.

    Here are some suggestions:

    Identify a certain activity that helps you feel more relaxed and set aside time to do it. 

    Being physically active is important for both our physical and mental health. Even small changes such as going for a regular walk outside may help you to feel less stressed.

    Reward yourself for achievements – even small things like finishing a piece of work or making a decision. 

    Remember that whatever you're going through that's causing you stress, you don't have to cope with it alone. Apart from friends and family or colleagues, there are also organisations such as Mind in Harrow.  Contact our SWiSH helpline that can assist directly or connect you with the service with the right expertise to assist.  Phone 020 8426 0929 or email info@mindinharrow.org.uk. Opening hours are 9.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

    Why not book one of our Emotional Resilience workshops?  Our Head for Work project delivers specialist, tailored resilience workshops, which is employer focused.  Organisations can choose the date and location for training and we provide User led Trainers who are accredited by Middlesex University.  To book training or find out more contact Hanlie Burger on 020 8515 7861 or email H.Burger@mindinharrow.org.uk
