There are a few ways to build resilience. You can start by learning to be more assertive, which will help you to deal with difficult situations. Mind Tools has some great tips on how to be assertive.
It can also help to look at balance in your life – is there one area that dominates everything else? Do you spend too much time focused on work? Try to step back and give more attention to other areas of your life, such as friends and family or hobbies.
Another approach is to focus on mindful living and learn to accept that you won’t be able to control every situation in your life. All you can do is face each new challenge as it arises.
How to cope with disappointment
When faced with disappointing news, it can be difficult to let go and move on with your life.
It can be tempting to shut out the world and spend time eating ice cream and watching boxsets (and that’s okay!).
After a little while though, it can start to bring you down. It can be helpful to look back at the situation and think about how you can prevent the same problems from bringing you down.
