The COVID-19 pandemic has made life and work much more stressful and exhausting for everyone -- it requires resilience. Resilience is your ability to deal with change, recover from setbacks or disappointments, and cope with life stressors in general.
Here are some easy ways to cultivate resilience so that you overcome any difficulties in your life:
Strengths & Weaknesses
Be honest with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses. Being able to identify them is an essential step to becoming more resilient.
You can do this by asking yourself these questions:
- What things are easy for you?
- What things are hard for you?
Think carefully and answer honestly. The things that come easily for you are your strengths, and the things that feel like a struggle are your weaknesses.
Weaknesses aren't anything to feel ashamed of; everyone has them. But to build resilience, you'll want to focus on your strengths. Enhancing your strengths can make you feel more confident in your abilities.
