How to Recharge Your Resilience Levels

There’s a misunderstanding of what it means to be resilient, and the resulting impact of overworking. I share information and ideas about how you can recharge your resilience levels in different ways and how you can find ways to get little pockets of holiday like moments so that you bounce back from difficulties or exhaustion as quickly as possible.

Daily recovery from work is crucial to maintain high levels of well-being, performance and resilience.

We learn early on in our lives that we must work hard.  Be dedicated.  Put in the hours etc.

Keep calm under pressure

Manage shifting priorities – all those things we put on our cv.

And yes we can do this, but we also need to have tools in our toolkit to help us keep going for the long term.

I share 

  • two key areas that people hardly ever mention in my workshops that are completely relevant to resilience.
  • why it’s not just about your physical health 
  • what to avoid if you want to help your body recover and recharge
  • how to tune into what will work specifically for you
  • why you need to calm your brain as well as recharge your body

Why Should We Recharge our Resilience?

Research has found that there is a direct correlation between lack of recovery and increased incidence of health and safety problems

It’s not just that, the recovery is needed so that your brain recovers, so then you can focus better, you can reflect on situations, see things with fresh eyes, come up with new ideas, renewed energy, adapt and then keep going or bounce back or push through.

I like to say that your brain and your body is like a rechargeable battery.
