Resilience is the ability to believe in yourself, to cope to the best of your abilities, to adapt well in difficult circumstances and to bounce back from adversity. Resilience is more than just a state of mind: healthy, balanced eating habits and regular exercise are necessary for all people to deal with the symptoms of stress.

Being resilient doesn’t mean going through life without experiencing stress and pain. People feel grief, sadness, and a range of other difficult emotions. Being resilient is about working through the emotions and effects of stress and painful events, not avoiding them.
