Emotionally and Mentally Resilient

More than ever, it is vital to ensure we are emotionally and mentally resilient. Especially during uncertain times and profoundly stressful times.

When you are emotionally and mentally resilient, you can better cope with stress. In other words, you can "roll with the punches" and adapt to change quickly. On the other hand, whenever people are not emotionally and mentally resilient, they do not cope well with stress. Consequently, they can struggle to deal with changes in their lives. As a result, they do not bounce back from problems quickly. However, it is possible to become more emotionally and mentally resilient. Therefore, we can improve the way we react to stress and changes in our lives.

Am I Born Emotionally and Mentally Resilient?

Some people are born more emotionally and mentally resilient than others. In other words, they can cope with changes in their life much better, from a young age. Also, there are external factors that can influence how emotionally and mentally resilient we are, for example:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Traumatic experiences


Mentally and Emotionally Resilient Traits

Although not all resilient people have much in common. However, they do tend to have similar traits. If you are looking to become more emotionally and mentally resilient, why not shift your mindset to think like them, for example:

Emotional Awareness

Try to understand your emotions better. As a result, you can handle emotions better and not overreact when feeling angry or sad.


Everyone makes mistakes, and not everything goes to plan. However, do not give up. Instead, take action and continue to work towards your goals.


If you want to be emotionally and mentally resilient, you need to recharge your batteries. In other words, have a tool kit of self-care exercises to help you relax and make yourself feel good. Therefore, you should take care of your body and mind. Ensure that you eat well, keep physically active and avoid coping strategies that are unhealthy and harmful.


Look for the positive in every situation. Know who you truly are, so do not let negative emotions take over your identity.

Feel in Control 

Be aware that you are in control of your life and external forces are not. Therefore, be proactive and approach whatever life throws at you with a solution.

Sense of Humour 

 It is a strength to be able to laugh at difficulties life has thrown at you. As a result, you can shift your mindset to see things as a mere challenge rather than a threat. Laughing in itself increases resilience and allows a high degree of wellbeing.

Support Network

Resilient people are good to be around as they tend to be happy. Therefore, it is easy to make friends and have a good support network. Therefore, avoid those who bring you down. Instead, have people around you that make you feel good about yourself and visa versa. Consequently, you can build connections with those who will help and support you.


Resilient people have confidence in themselves and their abilities. Therefore, don't let others put you down and face your fears. What's the worst thing that can happen? At least it's a chance to try something new and learn.


Having a routine allows you to stick to a healthy pattern. In other words, you have a schedule of all the essential things to you so you can maintain a good mindset. Therefore, you can be emotionally and mentally resilient and keep a healthy mind. Do this by getting up at your usual time and eating regular meals.

Help others

Helping others helps to add purpose to your life. Therefore, you will feel more satisfied with yourself and can develop relationships with others.

Avoid Drugs and Alcohol

As previously mentioned, resilient people can overcome challenges quickly and bounce back from problems. However, whenever drugs and alcohol are involved, this can be much more difficult. Drugs and alcohol cause you to lose motivation and give you a negative mindset and outlook. As a result, rather than promoting resilience, you could develop a mental health illness, such as anxiety or depression. Therefore, avoid drugs, and if you do drink alcohol, drink in moderation.

Learn From Your Past

Although many people don't like thinking about the past, sometimes it can be helpful. In other words, when you think about problems you have encountered, you can give yourself recognition for overcoming them. Therefore, you may develop a greater sense of pride and accomplishment. Just because you make a mistake doesn't mean the outcome won't be as good or not better than you had first planned. Without making mistakes, you wouldn't be where you are now. In addition, you wouldn't be able to take away the learning you have gained from them.

Embrace Change

Although routine is good, we need to be prepared for change. After all, for you to achieve all of your goals and succeed, change needs to happen. Therefore, welcome it and roll with it, to help you be more emotionally and mentally resilient.
