Dear Mindful Readers,
Life is unpredictable. There will always be joys and sorrows. Resilience is the ability to bounce back after adversity—to greet change and difficulty as an opportunity for self-reflection, learning, and growing. It’s helpful to understand that:
1) Resiliency is mostly cultivated from within by how we perceive and then react to stressors. Here’s a body scan to help you manage stress.
2) Pausing and observing the mind helps us resist getting stuck in our story and as a result empowers us to move forward. Try this 10-second practice.
3) Compassion, not criticism, facilitates greater resiliency at home and work. Here’s how to use compassion to cultivate well-being.
Here’s hoping you all find moments to enjoy being mindful this week.
