We’ve been talking a lot about resilience and taking personal responsibility for our health and fitness this month. Today, we’re going to get REAL on the mindset, habits, and actions you can take to become more resilient.
One thing I love about these habits is that they just plain FEEL good — and when you stack them together, you feel unstoppable.
8 Real-Life Habits to Become More Resilient
- Practice mindfulness.
Try meditation and deep breathing!
Start with just 1-2 minutes and build up to 10 once or twice a day.
- Create “down” time
Make time during the week for activities that help you relax, like hobbies, reading, playing music, etc.
- Get fitter
Regular exercise lowers stress, boosts your mood, and raises your self-esteem.
- Eat a nutritious diet
Feed your body what it needs: whole, nutrient-rich foods; and limit processed, sugary, and “junk” foods.
When you’re rested, you are better able to handle everyday stress.
- Build social connections
Connecting with others can help you feel supported and less alone.
- Practice positive self-talk
This helps you shift your focus to what’s possible in your life, instead of dwelling on the obstacles in your way.
- Make time for reflection
Reviewing your progress and accomplishments will give you firsthand evidence of your strength and determination.
