Have you ever wondered why some people find it more difficult to cope with stress and challenge than others? Resilience is one factor that makes a big difference.
Resilience has always been important but since we found ourselves dealing with a pandemic, so many people are facing new challenges. Enhancing our resilience is now even more vital. Challenges like working from home, which can make the working day very long and blurs the home-work boundary for many people. Challenges like our loss of in-person social connection and the negative impact of this on our collective mental health. Challenges like split families living in different countries or continents indefinitely.
People who successfully navigate through challenges and difficulties tend to have higher resilience. Resilience helps us consciously and compassionately move through adversity and is a key component of good mental health and wellbeing. In her keynote, Sarah distills the neuroscience of emotions to share how her audience can increase their own resilience by engaging their emotions. Sarah offers realistic, proactive strategies which can be applied immediately to boost emotional resilience without adding a lot of extra work to our daily lives.
