If you want to become more resilient there is plenty of guidance on the web (see my Lifehack 9 Steps to Resilience). But, actually getting started can be daunting, especially if you are already under pressure from your job, daily life demands, or both.

Rather than launching into yet another to-do list, I’ve found it better to prepare the ground by attending to what’s going on inside you. Here are three ideas to help you do that:

1) Develop a Stress Barometer

I’ve written a three-step plan to get you started, this post explains it all.

2) Use your Emotional Intelligence

Here’s a short video. If this idea appeals to you, then I have an online course,

Understanding and Developing Emotional Intelligence.

3) Learn about perspectives

When a problem seems too big or complicated, it helps to take a different perspective. It’s all about mindset. Develop your mental flexibility and agility so that you can ‘step outside’ the challenge and view in a new way.
Here are some posts to help you do that.
