You’ve taken a baby step towards creating even greater resilience in your day-to-day life! I can’t begin to tell you how important this is for the longevity of your career, your overall health, and your physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental wellness. If you’re a leader in an organization, the most important thing you can do to create a resilient culture is to MODEL resilience. Starting with yourself is the first step.
Cultivating resilience is a daily practice. I like to think of my resilience practices as my “master habits”. They allow me to show up in life with higher levels of energy, passion, and focus. On the days that I don’t make time for my resilience rituals, or forget how important they are, I find myself lacking energy, feeling sluggish, getting easily overwhelmed and straight-up exhausted.
Can you relate? Have you been there before? Are you currently feeling any of those states now?
We can probably both agree that it’s not enjoyable or sustainable to live our lives in a constant state of exhaustion, drive-drive-drive, or without “recharging our batteries”.
Resilience is the key to creating thriving relationships. Resilience is the way we embrace and utilize change. Resilience is the way we get back up after falling down. In my opinion, there’s no skill right now that’s more important than developing greater levels of resilience. We are living in a world of constant and chronic change and we must be able to quickly recover to face and celebrate the next day.
After studying change and resilience over the past decade, it’s my passion to share these ideas because I KNOW they will positively impact your life for decades to come! This guide is an amazing resource to start focusing even more on creating YOUR master resilience habits. While I’ve outlined my favorite practices, daily habits, must-know products, the key for you will be to find what works for you…..and that means it’s sustainable. Give yourself permission to start small. As you create success, you can add on!
Take a deep breath and enjoy the process. I look forward to hearing from you as you implement these resilience ideas into your daily life.
To set you up for success, we’ve designed this Resilience Kit in palatable “chunks” – Morning Practices, Afternoon Practices, and Evening Practices. We encourage you to use this flow to stay on track, keep things easy, and take the guesswork out of this process. Pick and choose and try new things. You may be surprised by rituals that you didn’t expect to enjoy.
Business is constantly changing and forcing us to create new solutions on the daily. This requires everyone in the organization to show up with focus, energy, passion, creativity, and most of all, resilience. Fostering that kind of environment is critical to the success of your organization.
