3 Things to Deepen Your Ability to Thrive

Resiliency is traditionally defined as our ability to spring back from and successfully adapt to adversity. Resilient people are often flexible in their thinking,  endure difficulty with a realistic outlook and use the experience in self- empowering ways. I'd add it always increase the quality of the experience. 

Get out and exercise That helps us in all areas of our life. 
Don't hide behind too much task based "work"

Resilience is in part due to our journey to date, lessons learned, skills applied, used and the networks we have developed, managed and engaged in that we support and in turn support us in return. 

Maintain a Hopeful Outlook. An realistic yet optimistic outlook enables you to expect that good things will happen in your life. Try visualizing what you want, rather than worrying about what you fear.

Take the time to get out and be social.Invest in the time to meet and engage with others people
Exercise regularly.
Taking care of yourself helps to keep your mind and body primed to deal with situations that require resilience. 

Go in for a check up or a "tune up". It can be life altering for some of us. Better to catch things when they are  annoying then when it's either too late or a serious change to your life.

Get a check up!

Take the time to play. One can get so task focused that we don't take the time to relax and play. What do you love to do? When is the last time you did it? I love to bike, roller blade, swim, read, and practise photography. Not all at once. But for 20 - 90 minutes I do one or more of those several times a week. 

What will you do? Plan it. Make it on purpose. 

Until next time Imagine Yourself with more Resiliency for Life.
