Resiliency is defined as being able to get back up from adversity and hard life transitions or events. It means being able to get to a stage of working through difficult feelings and emotions to get to a stage of mental wellness.
Individual resiliency has been consistently tested and negatively impacted through the pandemic, everyone’s everyday lives drastically changed under imposed safety restrictions. For many people it is hard to maintain resiliency and accept this new “normal” largely because of continued social isolation and the impact on mental wellness.
A key component of fostering resilience in these changing times is through developing and applying coping mechanisms. Personal coping mechanisms help to reduce the stress that comes with these difficult transitions. Research indicates stress plays a strong part in both physical and mental wellbeing.
One coping mechanism shared our Connectedness Coaching educational programs is making sure you’re maintaining consistency in your life despite the changes, creating a schedule for yourself even if you’re working from home to maintain work-life balance. Building up a new routine can help things feel predictable while ensuring all the items that are important to you receive some time in your day.
Consider scheduling in work hours, healthy eating and cooking time, self-care time, and time to connect with others and perhaps participate in the next Connectedness Coaching event.
