To build resilience requires a well nourished mind and body. This is especially needed because when you find yourself in a difficult situation, your mind will send a signal to your body to use its resources to protect itself. Thus, it is important that your reserves are well maintained. On the other side of this, a nourished body-mind complex does not perceive threats as often as someone who does not have the strength and stamina to withstand the tumultuous environment. Focus on building your self-nurturing skills, even when you’re troubled or under duress. Make time for life meaning, the activities that you enjoy. Do more of what makes you happy. By nourishing your own needs, you can boost your overall health and resilience and be fully ready to face life’s challenges. And you will be more able to serve others.
