Did you know that resilient people live longer, are healthier, are more successful, have happier relationships and generally kick ass? Not only do resilient people adapt to change and stressors easier but, as a result, they are less likely to face depression, which is steadily on the rise in both the UK and USA.

 

Fortunately the explosion of positive psychology throughout the world has meant that we are better understanding how to actively develop more resilience in advance of when difficulty emerges – which is exactly the area I have chosen to focus on within this month’s hot topic.

For those of you that consider yourself resilient, do these benefits surprise you? How has resilience helped you?
