Build resilience by working with limitations. If the setback involves some sort of loss, be creative and conjure up ways to achieve joy and success in spite of the loss. Losses occur in varying degrees, from temporary and minor to permanent and significant. Oftentimes, losses feel much larger at onset. Put the loss into perspective and find ways to work with it and around it, while not allowing yourself to feel overly discouraged.
Action trumps emotions. Take a proactive approach to wellness and shift your mind towards a ‘can do’ attitude. Ask yourself, “What can I do?” Be realistic, but also do not underestimate your capacity. It is said that we all have unrealized talents waiting to be discovered. Be open to possibilities and you will gradually discover a whole new perspective on the situation while bouncing back in a timely manner!
