Life Tips: Perseverance

• Finding meaning: Resilient individuals trust there’s a gift, lesson or opportunity in every challenging situation.

• Being vulnerable, connecting and asking for help: Be willing to share your struggles with those you trust.

• Having a supportive and encouraging relationship with oneself in response to disappointment and failure allows us to bounce back more easily.

• The ability to surrender and trust in the face of uncertainty: Believing everything is in our control is very stressful.

• A sense of humour: Studies show it is a form of emotion regulation and coping.

• The ability to have equanimity: mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.

• Cultivating perspective and gratitude for what you have.
