Throughout my life it has been true to say that the more difficulty I faced, the more resilient I became. However, as I began to practice more personal development strategies in life I’ve also come to realize that I needn’t have waited for difficulty in order to develop more resilience – I realized that there are concrete things which we can all do to proactively cultivate more resilience in advance of when tough times hit.


Should you wish to cultivate more resilience in advance of facing difficulty here are my extra top tips that can’t be found anywhere else, including in my series posts on Mondays!


  • Release built up tension at the end of the day by having a hot shower / bath with calming bubble bath / shower cream and chill out music


  • Write down all the things you have to be grateful for (a sentence a day journal is a great way of doing this) – this will encourage you to appreciate your life more and give you a more balanced perspective when things go wrong
