Why Resilience is Important in Our Time?

Each second, 5 babies are born into this world, two new blogs created, 2.8 million emails sent, 34 trees are cut down in the rainforest and around 2 people will die.

In current fast-paced modern environment, the challenges we’re facing are huge.

Adversities like broken economic system, job loses, resource scarcity, rising prices… the levels of anxiety are growing too.

Sometimes, gradual changes come in putting forward things in a very predictable way. Sometimes, like now, changes can be sudden and disoriented.

The ‘waves’ of change ahead.

“How do I cope?”

“How do I develop my resilience to thrive in these difficult times?”

“The waves are getting bigger, but what should I do?”

“How can I be the catalyst for change?

These questions are common questions one might ask on a personal level, but how can adapting a resilient character helping us in resolving these queries? How can we be psychologically prepared?

Let’s look back at the definition of psychological resilience.

Scientist/psychologist thinks that resilience has at least three different properties.

For example, resilient system could be able to withstand a shock, without losing its basic function.

Another property of resilience is the system might be able to adapt to changing circumstances.

And the third property, resilient system is able to transform to a different way of life when the current is no longer feasible.

Resilience is a character that can’t be passed through genes, it is a character than can be learned.

That’s the great news!
