Resilience: Bending Without Breaking

Even in the best of times, we can experience financial hardship, relationship difficulties, and health challenges. And then there are times when we get thrown into a storm of uncertainty and change. In recent days, we’ve seen the unprecedented fallout from a global pandemic reaching our family, friends, and our own households: Shuttered schools, loss of employment, closed businesses, and even the illness or death of loved ones.

Resilience is the capacity to weather adversity, to encounter difficulty and bounce back, and to thrive no matter what life throws at you. Resilience is a skill that is developed with time and practice.

In this class, you will learn:

  • What resilience is and how to build it
  • How to develop habits that increase perseverance
  • Practices to enhance emotional flexibility
  • Exercises for your optimism muscle
  • Practices to face your fears and turn them into strengths
  • How to discover and align with your meaning and purpose
