Resilience infographic


Everyone faces difficulties in their lives. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity, so that you can still get what you want out of your life.

Resilience isn’t just something that you’re born with, but rather skills that you can build up over time. Just like any new set of skills, it also takes practice.

Research shows that resilience is made up of a number of different components:

  • Regulating your emotions
  • Having a helpful outlook and perspective on life
  • Gathering information and planning
  • Social connection
  • Self-care

These pages will take you through the different components that contribute to resilience.
