Resilience doesn’t always mean jumping back from a traumatic event. Resilience shows up in even the simplest ways. Falling off a bike and getting back on, completing assignments for classes that you struggle in, and laughing after a tough day are all moments of resilience.

Step 1: Write down a time in which you displayed a simple form of resilience.

Step 2: Think intently about this moment. How did this moment feel? Did you realize you were exhibiting resiliency?
