In the last post, I wrote about adversity and resilience. I stated that resilience is a learned skill that we can all benefit from practicing. In order to rebound successfully, it is necessary to process emotions and needs in a timely and healthy manner.
Acknowledge your emotions and allow yourself to express them in a healthy way. Suppressed emotions have a cumulative effect that can be harmful in the long run. Have compassion for yourself and heed your internal desires, whether it is an urge for solitude or friendly support, extra sleep, good nutrition or exercise. Prioritize your needs so that you can move forward freely in life. When you do this, insights often arise giving you a bigger picture perspective and lighter view of life. Practice resilience to feel that bounce in your step!
