One of the biggest challenges for most is to prosperously rise above adversity. More than ever, it is critical that we stay in total control of how we react to life stressors. It’s all about securing positive health, safety and wellness, which enable us to live our best lives. Instead of being controlled by thoughts and actions, we have to strengthen the resilience muscle that not only offsets the risks of inevitable challenges, but brilliantly prepare you for opportunities.
In order to keep thriving and be more resilient, you have to keep flexing your emotional muscle. Resilience is essentially the muscle that helps adapt, withstand or recover from challenging life experiences. When deflecting attention from specific skills like self-care, emotional regulation, problem-solving, or cognitive reframing; we can’t be our authentic selves, ever! And, it is just as important to have a laser-focused understanding and expectation around your reactive behavior in that it is the key to securing forward-thinking preparedness.
Believe it or not, we all (should) crave the benefits of a sharp emotional acumen, with the ability to overcome and annihilate roadblocks. Resilience, the ‘emotional muscle’ empowers us to develop a well-balanced muscular system, if you will. The secret is to stay clear of overusing physical, mental and spiritual energy in times of disruption. This is why it’s so critical to practice new skills consistently. You have to coordinate and plan, and execute intense/positive emotional energy more efficiently. While Resiliency Coaching seamlessly focuses on enhancing all aspects of life, it strengthens the muscle that teaches us to be mindful, purposeful, forward-thinking with our thoughts and actions.
Building resilience is to first connect to your emotions. Today’s climate has reshaped the trajectory of how we interact, and react, for that matter. It would be advantageous to be patient with yourself and design a landscape that reflects how you truly feel. When you create a forward-looking ‘frame of mind’ – you not only represent your authentic self, but it also affords the autonomy to rediscover who you really are!
What does all this mean, you ask? It simply means that in order to build (or rebuild) resilience and live an emotionally energetic, vibrant and stress-free life, we have to tap into our emotional energy and use it to our advantage. First, let’s discuss how draining it can be when you are emotionally drained. It takes a great deal of grit to recharge each and every time emotions are heightened and characters are challenged. It’s almost as if negative (risky) thoughts are excruciatingly racing and it’s tough to switch them off. This is when your innate fight kicks in and helps you release those emotions in a healthy way.
Anyone with a forward-thinking frame of mind understands that the best way to treat distress is to eliminate the stressor, and then commit to a better overall health. A strong mind and body is essential to balancing stressful situations and carve out a resilient foundation. Emotional exhaustion can allure its ugly head while experiencing stress or adversity, personally or professionally. Various lifestyle changes work to bounce back but it is a matter of consistency. Your ultimate goal is resilience – not just a temporary fix. Even bandages fall off! The objective is to elevate mental,
physical, spiritual, and emotional health which reduces the risks of developing diseases associated with burnout.

Finally, resilience is all about building and restoring the tired and weary soul. Coaching one to be more cognizant of their resilient nature involves teaching impassioned skills that assassinate catastrophe. Resilience is an inspiriting kind of movement designed to set a moral and courageous tone. This movement embraces an empathetic attitude towards planning your life, despite hardship. If you feel a sense of emptiness and your inner soul becomes perpetually exhausted, regroup and flex your bounce-back muscle. Believe in yourself and live confident in your apt ability to elevate the demise of every never-ending emotional marathon.
