The more resilience in your system, the more you can choose your reaction to stressors.
That means you can choose not to feel the negative stress reaction. In order to be in a position to choose, you need to build the foundations for your resilience so that your reactions in any context can be open, thoughtful, appropriate and honouring what you need. This means addressing your top barriers to your own resilience, and putting in practice a resilience habit via the top enablers. With resilience you proact in order to react well: Being resilient doesn’t mean you don’t step outside of your comfort zone, where stressors are at play. Actually the opposite! But you don’t have to experience the negative stress reaction. Any release of adrenaline and cortisol is performance-enhancing and not bad-stress inducing.
