    After five years it’s finally time for me to update my website.

    Oddly enough, the toughest part was redoing my headline.

    Here’s what I eventually came up with.

    Resilience is a skill.

    Discipline is the test.

    Freedom is your reward.

    This feels like a great way to highlight my core competency and the guidance I’ll be providing.

    I expect the full site to go live at the end of April.

    For now, I’m sharing five practical ways resilience can help you navigate challenging times.

    When faced with a crisis, resilience is your greatest weapon.

    Here are 5 powerful strategies to help you navigate tough times and come out stronger on the other side:

    1) Focus on what you can control.

    Trying to control the uncontrollable is a recipe for stress and anxiety.

    Instead, focus on what you can control:

    • Your attitude
    • Your reactions
    • Your routines

    Doing this will leave you more energy to tackle the tough stuff.

    2) Practice mindfulness.

    During tough times, it’s easy to get lost in negative thoughts.

    But with mindfulness, you can learn to observe your thoughts without getting caught up in them.

    Through meditation, deep breathing, or just taking a walk, you can become more present and improve your mental health.

    When I’m experiencing negative thoughts I ask myself one question to help snap out of it “Is this thought useful, or necessary?”

    The answer is almost always “No,” which makes it easier to move on.

    3) Connect with others.

    Humans are social creatures, and crisis can make us feel isolated.

    Connecting with others can provide much-needed support and perspective.

    Reach out to friends, family, or a therapist to talk about what you’re going through.

    Prefer to keep it light? Consider joining a gym or another social group. Anything to keep those social interactions consistent and helpful.

    4) Stay flexible

    In tough times, plans can change rapidly.

    By staying flexible, you can adapt to new situations and find creative solutions to problems.

    This means being open to new ideas, shifting your perspective, and being willing to try new things.

    One of my favorite quotes supports this approach:

    “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Carl Sandburg

    5) Practice self-care.

    Taking care of yourself is crucial during tough times.

    This means getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising.

    It also means taking time to do things you enjoy, whether that’s reading a book or taking a hot bath.

    By practicing self-care, you can recharge your batteries and be better equipped to handle whatever comes your way.

    As a heads up, self-care may seem selfish at times. But you can’t be the best version of yourself – and help those around you – if you’re not taking care of yourself.
