5 Science-Backed Strategies To Build Resilience.

This interesting article comes from the information-sharing Greater Good Science Center of the University of California, Berkeley. Resilience, in human parlance, is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and setbacks, often equated with toughness, to adapt well to change, and keep going in the face of adversity. A combination of factors contributes to resilience. Many studies show that the primary factor in resilience is having caring and supportive relationships within and outside the family. Relationships that create love and trust, provide role models and offer encouragement and reassurance help bolster a person’s resilience. Several additional factors are associated with resilience, including:

  • The capacity to make realistic plans and take steps to carry them out.
  • A positive view of yourself and confidence in your strengths and abilities.
  • Skills in communication and problem solving.
  • The capacity to manage strong feelings and impulses.

All of these are factors that people can develop in themselves.
