Do You “Spring Back”?

Dear Friends,

You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Spring forward, Fall back,” in terms of Daylight Saving Time. But there’s also a time when it’s good to “spring back” – that is, to be resilient. The dictionary defines resilient as “springing back; rebounding; recovering readily from illness, adversity, or the like.” Here are some tips on how to master the skill of being resilient and springing back as you navigate through our ever-changing world:

Learn from experience. Resilient people reflect on what happens to them – good and bad – so they can move forward without illusion.

Accept setbacks and losses. You’ve got to face the reality of what happens in order to get past it.

Recognize emotions. Resilient people don’t hide from their feelings. They identify what they’re feeling and express their emotions appropriately.

Keep time in perspective. Past, present, and future are separate. Don’t mix them up by letting what’s in the past determine your choices in the here and now.

Think creatively and flexibly. Find new ways to solve problems and face challenges.

Take care of yourself. Resilience is based on good physical and mental health. Get enough rest, eat sensibly, and spend time with people who support you.

Ask for help. Resilient people don’t try to do everything themselves. Accept that you’ll need to ask others for assistance, and learn how to do this graciously and effectively.

The dictionary also defines resilient as “returning to the original form after being bent, compressed or stretched.” Lots of that going on these days!
