While most of the adult population reports experiencing personal or emotional problems in the course of a year, about 50% of these people say that they are unable to solve their problems and about one-third state that they are unable to do anything to make their problems more bearable.
In the Building Personal Resilience program, we will introduce you to simple, practical techniques that can help you de-stress from challenging situations, big or small. You’ll learn strategies to build your resilience and boost your ability to “take charge” of yourself by better regulating your energy throughout the day, a key in building and sustaining your resilience.
Resilience gives you the benefits of better sleep, improved teamwork and morale, the ability to deal with difficult people and increased ability to focus, process information, solve problems and enhance creativity.
Exploring the energy-management concepts can help you see where you may be draining your energy and depleting your reserves, which can keep you from being your best. You may discover in some cases the source of your stress is not what it may appear to be.
Of primary importance is practicing the science-based techniques you will learn that change the way your body’s physiology responds in stressful situations. As with most things that are worthwhile, it does take effort to build your resilience. The skills you will in this program are very practical and can be used on the go, no matter what you are doing or where you are. Then, automatic stress reactions won’t dictate how you feel, respond or perform, whether you’re at work or at home.
It’s important to recognize that we all experience moments when we feel in sync and “on top of the world,” when we enjoy projects and interactions with family, friends and colleagues. Certain events and interactions, though, can disrupt those feelings. The techniques you will learn can help you get back in sync and back on track faster, right in the moment. No one will even know you’re using them!
