With everything we have experienced over the past 2 years, It seems we are all trying find more capacity to handle what keeps coming at us. How do we preserve in the face of adversity or constant change? The key is to be more resilient–to heighten our self-awareness of the things we cannot control and our responses to those things. It is the radical acceptance of the highest order. We are all born resilient and we can learn how to be more adaptive and reactive to not just survive but to thrive. This is how we are all hardwired, it is as an innate human ability for self-preservation and protection. Begin and end every day knowing, no matter what, you can get yourself to a place where you know you can handle anything, be it a small, everyday frustration or a full blown, major crisis. Our favorite psychotherapist John Tsilimparis, MFT is back to show us how to keep doing the work that will help us tap into our resilience and thrive.
