What’s micro-resilience and how can it help you minimize the impacts of daily stress?
Let’s think of micro-resilience this way: What’s the normal way you live your life?
Do you power through your emotions, fatigue and stress?
Do you end up collapsing at the end of the day?
Do you believe in pushing yourself to prove yourself and validate your self-worth?
The pushing through and feeling completely “spent” can lead to us feeling like it’s too big a hole to climb out of. We feel completely deflated and don’t know how to come back. Thus, we remain stuck in this vicious cycle.
Inevitably, our bodies start screaming for quick ways to feel better thus we reach for the glass of wine or comfort food despite not being truly hungry or thirsty. This is a very normal and natural response from the body. It wants to find the quickest way to feel better but these quick fixes don’t help our resilience, they’re just mental bandaids.
But what if we never reached this point and, instead, built in ways to micro-recover throughout our everyday lives?
