Building Skills to Cope with Adversity

Have you ever wondered why some people are able to stay calm in a crisis while others appear to fall apart?

Those who stay calm in the face of a disaster have what psychologists call resilience. Resilience means being able to adjust and adapt to life’s setbacks and adversity. Along with handling the stresses of everyday life, people with a higher degree of emotional resilience are better able to “roll with the punches” and rebuild their lives after a crisis.

Yes, we are categorizing this epidemic as a crisis.

For many of us, coping with the challenges presented by COVID-19 has been difficult. We talk regularly with people dealing with anxiety, sleeplessness, loneliness, boredom, financial worries, productivity problems and fear about what the future holds.

The rippling effects of COVID-19 have introduced changes that many of us never imagined possible in our lifetime. These changes may yet bring unrecognized opportunities for our future which will be positive. In the meantime, the same changes go hand-in-hand with grieving what has been lost.

Resilience won’t make your problems disappear.

What it will do is give you the ability to carry on and keep functioning. Fortunately, people can learn to become resilient. Like a muscle that grows stronger with regular exercise, resilience is built on a set of skills that you can learn about, practice and develop over time.

What could developing your resilience do for you?

Join us at noon on June 4 for a Zoom presentation focused on exploring resilience. Learn about skills that will help you grow and develop your ability to adjust, adapt and cope with life’s current and future challenges. Leave with a practical set of resilience-building tips you can immediately start to build into your everyday routines of life.

We look forward to talking with you on June 4th. In the meantime, take care and be well. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/exploring-resilience-in-the-time-of-covid-19-webinar-tickets-104783436078
