A Few of the Resilience Recipes That Folk Sent Yesterday Plus a Model to Help you Build Your Personal Resilience.
I work with people who need a bit of a helping hand to rediscover what makes them shine, be energised and succeed.
Yesterday I posted a shout out for Resilience Recipes. Thought I'd share a few of them with folk today. Thanks especially to Cat Hase for getting the recipes flowing on LI
- When I’m feeling stressed and raggedy and there’s too much going on - I stop and tidy my space/ environment up a bit - it helps me become grounded again and slows/quietens down the niggly inner voices
- When I'm tired and run down - I remember that plants go through cycles where they slow down and rest to enable them to bloom beautifully when the time is right - this reminds me that I don't have to be on top form all the time
- When I feel overwhelmed - I call a close friend or sister - just saying it out loud is sometimes enough to bring things into perspective.
- When I feel mentally exhausted - I binge watch boxsets - It helps my brain get totally absorbed in something else so I can't hear the tired thoughts.
- When I feel frustrated - I cry it out - releasing the tension helps
We all face challenges from time to time and need to step back and regenerate. When we share what's going on for us and what helps us focus and move on, it can help other's who may not yet have a toolkit of things to call on.
In my work with clients we often touch on resilience, I particularly like the Roffey park Resilience model which I share below.It's a useful tool to check in with from time to time. Hope it helps you.
Are there any areas where things need a bit of attention for you right now?
