Mindful Resilience
A personal approach to individual and group psychological therapies

Developing Resilience

It is suggested that there are 9 key factors important in developing and maintaining resilience:
  1. Optimism and Positive Thinking
  2. Building Self-Esteem and Self-Efficacy
  3. Developing a good locus of control
  4. Impulse Control - not jumping into things!
  5. Problem Solving
  6. Managing Stress
  7. Social Support
  8. Learning from Mistakes
  9. A Good Sense of Humour
Each of these positive factors can be learnt and developed. However like a heathy body your mind needs to exercise - so you need to practice these and invest in yourself and others. One more thing - compassion is also a great healer:
"When i do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. This is my religion"
