If the news is causing you sleepless nights, take comfort in knowing that you are not alone! We are all in this together, and while we can’t control what other people are doing, we can control our response to it. Experts from around the world have been busy writing self-help articles to guide us through this challenging time. Here are some wellness tips we found at everydayhealth.com to help boost your mental health and keep you going strong, both mentally and physically this summer.
Our aim shouldn’t be about stopping or preventing adversity, because that’s impossible, according to mental health experts. Rather, our path toward living a more peaceful, balanced and joyful life is having more resilience, according to Amit Sood, MD, the executive director of the Global Center for Resiliency and Well-Being and creator of Mayo Clinic Resilient Mind in Rochester, Minnesota. As defined by Dr. Sood in a Health and Wellness article, resilience is your ability to withstand adversity and bounce back despite life’s downturns.
According to a survey conducted by Everyday Health, in partnership with The Ohio State University, 83% of Americans believe they have high levels of emotional and mental resilience, but only 57% of that group actually scored as resilient.
Fortunately, resilience isn’t a fixed trait! You can boost your resilience by adopting proven coping strategies. Pediatrician Ken Ginsberg, MD, created The 7 Cs resilience model to help children and adolescents build resilience. The 7 Cs are appropriate for all ages, however, and include learning: 1) competence; 2) confidence; 3) connection;, 4) character; 5) contribution; 6) coping; and 7) control.
Physical resilience matters too!
Stress takes its toll on your body as much as your emotional state. Building up physical resilience involves keeping your immune system strong and your body functioning optimally so you can withstand taxing situations and bounce back from illness.
