The global pandemic and escalating mental health crises can take their toll. Resilience is a process of positive adaptation in the face of hardship. As humans, we are wired for it – capable of navigating complexity, remaining agile, and demonstrating optimism. Modern brain science offers a host of strategies for cultivating resilience by leveraging “protective factors” –adopting and practicing mindsets, behaviors, and activities that serve as buffers and help bolster our well-being. Learn ways to engage in self-care that helps nourish and sustain us during intensive times.
