Although stress can be good in small amounts, ongoing stress can lead you to feeling overwhelmed and burnt out.

Have you ever wondered why some people can bounce back from certain situations whilst others fall apart? Well this is based on our resilience and every person’s journey or experience of resilience is different and dependent on many factors.

Let Me Explain Exactly How Your Resilience Can Help You Manage Stress

The first step in building your resilience is to understand how you see yourself. Scoring yourself against specific statements can help you think about how you approach everyday situations. The results can help you see your strengths and development needs more clearly and will help you decide how resilient you are.
