How you perceive situations will affect your emotions – some people see a situation as a major adversity, whilst others perceive it as a challenge. Resilience is about how you absorb disruption in your life and manage your emotions.
Resilience is linked to your ability to cope with change and stress. Everyone has the ability to become more resilient but this will be affected by your age, health, the type and frequency of the adversities you encounter and the resources you have available to cope. Underpinning this is your ability to work effectively with your emotions – your emotional intelligence.
