The three secrets of resilience

Chronic stress is a serious problem in modern times. In fact, according to several scientific studies, most visits to the doctor's office are related to or caused by stress. We've all experienced some form of anxiety, depression and fatigue in our life. The key question is how to bounce back and make the most of out of our life experience?

According to Dr. Joan Borysenko, there are three secrets to resilience:

1. A resolute acceptance of reality. Joan says, "Resilient thinkers face difficult situations head-on. Then they do whatever it takes to survive. How about you? Do you accept your situation realistically, or are you more prone to denial, rationalization, or wishful thinking?"

2. A deep belief that life is meaningful. One only has to read the story of Viktor Frankl, a resilient Austrian psychiatrist who survived four Nazi death camps and then wrote the classic book "Man's Search for Meaning". Dr. Joan writes, "In spite of the unthinkable trauma and hardship he suffered during the Holocaust, Frankl became a happy man and an inspiration to millions of people worldwide."

3. An uncanny ability to improvise. Dr. Joan reminds us that "resilient people are masters of innovation. Their fertile imaginations are expansive, and they attend to details that others might miss or consider irrelevant, using everything at their disposal to create the best possible outcome." These are words to live by!

Ten ways to create a brighter future for you and future generations

These tips are from Dr. Joan's book entitled: "It's Not the End of the World - Developing Resilience in Times of Change":

1. Give up trying to change the past - it's history.
2. Mobilize resilient thinking.
3. Drop the victim mentality immediately.
4. Exercise regularly.
5. Don't just sit there - do something. (Take action)
6. Don't just do something - sit there. (Try meditation)
7. Stay engaged with life. (Don't isolate yourself)
8. Reverse the flow. (Helping others brings meaning to your life)
9. Give thanks. (Gratitude will improve your life)
10. Connect with a friend. (Nothing beats supporting one another)

The next NaturalNews Talk Hour with Dr. Joan will inspire you to reach for your greatest potential. There is no limit to what we can achieve with a healthy mindset. This is healthy programming at its best.
