Resilience is not a trait that people either have or don’t have. It involves behaviours, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed. It is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress, such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors. In other words, resilience determines how quickly we get back to our steady state after the air has been knocked out of us, when we must push through circumstances that challenge our very being.
