Resiliency is the capacity to recover from difficulties. Resiliency isn’t a trait that only a select few people in the population have, it’s a skill that you can build with yourself, and the only way to practice is to get back up!

Step 1: When you think of the term “Resiliency,” what comes to mind? Brainstorm a few keywords or phrases that you associate with the term. Look up the definition if you need to.

Step 2: In a few sentences, explain a time in your life in which you had to be resilient. Did this feel natural to you? If so: Do you remember the first time you intentionally practiced the skill of resiliency? If not: How do you think you can build on this skill to make it stronger?

Step 3: Find a group or partner and discuss strategies to build on your resiliency skills.
