Personal resilience:

Personal resilience is the way we cope with challenging and difficult situations in order to overcome them. Simply put, it’s how we personally recover from stress. The good news is that we can become more resilient, even in the most stressful and unpredictable times such as now.

Find some time and space with a notebook to work through this reflective guide that will encourage you to reconnect with your values and manage expectations.
