Creating Emotional Resilience in a Multidimensional World

Q. What is Emotional Resilience?

Emotional Resilience refers to one’s ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises. Stress is a normal part of modern life – how we react and adapt to it, is different for everyone.

People who are emotionally resilient are able to “roll with the punches” and adapt to adversity / stressful issues, trauma, tragedy, family/relationship without lasting difficulties, while less resilient people. have a tougher time with stress and life changes.

Please note – Stress affects people mentally and emotionally if left unsupported and dealt by impacting people often on every level of their life -mentally emotionally, physically and spiritually.

There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they are, or accept the responsibility for changing them.”

– Denis Waitley
