Increasing our level of endurance and resilience every day can help us cope adaptively and bounce back after changes, challenges, setbacks, disappointments, and failures.
Resilience is the process of being able to adapt well and bounce back quickly in times of stress. This stress may manifest as family or relationship problems, serious health problems, problems in the workplace, or financial problems, just to name a few.
While some people have a seemingly natural capacity to bounce back from adversity, others do not. But resilience can be learned and increased.
Once mastered, resilience will serve you well throughout your life. You can always draw upon your past experiences where you showed resilience and use that strength to manage and overcome difficult times.
Resilience makes you stronger, and with each challenge that you encounter, you develop new skills and ways of dealing with life and build further on your strengths..
Here are some ways to help you increase and strengthen...
As human beings, we have a deep desire for love and connection. We also have a deeply embedded fear of rejection and shame.
However, the only way to open our hearts and to create a meaningful connection is to allow ourselves to fully be seen. We have to be willing to be vulnerable and exposed in the face of that fear and doubt.
Willingness to explore yourself, deal with your emotions and tap into your own inner wisdom. Sit for a moment and let the concept of a strong back, soft front really sink into your being.

The little inner child within is really asking for your attention and focus.
No matter how we were loved and cared for by the best parents in the world or the worst one, for the most part, parents do the best that they can.
But no matter how much we loved or cared I don’t believe any children out in the world feel 100% fully loved all the time.
There’s hurt from different things, schoolmates, parents scolding, from siblings that create hurt that we don’t understand at that moment, and when we don’t understand something, it gets locked away.
Those parts of us that don’t understand stay locked or particalize. When we have this pouty inner child out there, and not in our wholeness and scattered somewhere out there and hurt, we don’t have our whole full potential for what we're doing
Observe our inner child, recognize our inner being and provide unconditional love adoring love for our inner children.
To recognize your inner child as a...
