Personal Resilience and Stress Management

Being under pressure or feeling stressed is an inevitable and arguably healthy reality of life. Stress can bring out our best and push us to achieve things we never dreamed possible. 

But sometimes it seems our self-worth is measured by how much we can put up with, a rite of passage to see how long we can grin can bear it… surviving rather than thriving.   

In a desperate attempt to show how strong we are, we often break ourselves, coming back day after day for more of the same expecting a different outcome. That’s not resilience. I think Einstein called it insanity.  

It turns out we are hardwired to be resilient, and it’s in the recovery that we get stronger.  In this short programme, you’ll learn that far from being a fixed character trait, resilience can be built.
