We have all experienced rough times in our lives. Sometimes, it doesn’t take long to get through it, and other times, we really have to grit our teeth to get to the other side. We very often use the bad times to remind ourselves that it is worth working back towards the good times. But what many of us forget, is that you can also use the good times to build up resistance for the next time life throws you a curveball. This is called resilience, and I think it is a vitally important ingredient in a healthy life.  

Resilience is an incredibly useful tool, and we can take the time to build resilience in a myriad different ways. Resilience is that quality that can help us quit bad habits, weather a storm, perform better at work, finish your studies, support others in need, and just be better persons overall.  

If you want to see my other work, please have a look at my website, we specialize in vegan lipstick and vegan foundation. Also, we partner with only the top manufacturers in the United States (while formulating in compliance with the EU’s stricter safety regulations) and consult with a diverse global network of beauty experts.

Good health is priceless 

We all overindulge from time to time, and there is no need to feel guilty. After all, what is life without enjoyment. But it is also important to look after yourself physically. Studies have shown that times of stress makes us more susceptible to illnesses and depression. By taking care of your body with the right foods, the right attitude and enough relaxation, we make sure that we are tough enough to be resilient when the moment calls for it.  

It’s not just about you 

The most resilient people are not resilient just because they have inner strength. They are resilient because they have strong people around them. We should remember that friends are not just there for when we need them. When things are going well, remember to look after your friends and your networks. Make sure they are healthy and help where you can. Then, when times are tough, you know you can count on them the way they can count on you.  

Understand why you are doing it 

Having resilience is a lofty ideal because it is a tiny step towards making the planet a better place. When you are resilient, you have enough spare energy to see others in need and help them when they need it. Resilience presents itself in many different ways. Sometimes, something as seemingly small as doing volunteer work can help you build your resilience. And seeing the difference you make in the lives of others will only strengthen your resolve to continue along your path.  

Start now 

Taking the first step towards greater resilience is not as difficult as you may think. If you think about it, there is already something in your life that is not too difficult to do, but that you have been putting off since forever. Set yourself a deadline and get that thing done. The relief you feel will be the fuel for further work towards making you a more resilient person.
