How to Hardwire Resilience into your Brain and Accept Tough Circumstances

Resilience is defined as the capacity to come back quickly from difficulty. The word also defines the ability of an object to spring back into shape, giving it flexibility. We have each gone through something we thought would break us, and something we thought we would never come back from. During these rough chapters, it is only natural to panic and wonder, how will I see this circumstance through and get to the other side? How can I find relief?

The answer is resilience. According to the American Psychological Association Here are a few ways you can hardwire resilience into your brain in order to accept and overcome difficult circumstances.

  1. Make connections: Nurturing positive relationships with those you love allows your brain to feel safe and supported. As social beings, we need to know we are not alone and have allies we can trust and rely on.

  2. It’s All About Perspective: During highly stressful situations, you will oftentimes find that there are more things out of your control than those you can change. Stressful situations are a part of life and can’t be changed, but you can change how you interpret the issue. If you have a habit of thinking the world is coming to an end during a few stressful situations, over time you will feel this way about all tough moments. By changing your perspective and accepting that yes, I am stressed, but this too shall pass and things will be okay, the brain becomes more resilient.

  3. Accepting Change: Learn to accept that change is a part of life and will always be around the corner. The more we comfort ourselves by believing anything in our lives can last forever, we not only begin to take things for granted, but we also go into shock the moment something changes. Instead, cherish the things that are in front of you at this very moment, and be in the present.

  4. Nurture a Positive View of Yourself: Developing confidence in your ability to solve problems and endure tough situations is extremely helpful in building resilience.

In addition to these tools, mindfulness, meditation, and cognitive behavioural therapy have also been known to help build resilience.
