Information and inspiration for a healthy business

Resilience is our ability to adapt and recover when things don’t go as planned or we experience any of life’s challenges.Moreover, with half of the adults we polled agreeing that a low level of resilience can adversely affect work performance, it’s something that shouldn’t be overlooked or underestimated in helping your business to thrive.
Having the inner resource to assess a situation, look at what’s needed and take appropriate positive action, can help when everyone is looking to you to steer the way.
Improving your own resilience and encouraging your employees to do the same will ensure your business can adapt to change and stay realistically positive in the face of uncertainty. How a business copes when things don’t go to plan dictates its ability not only to survive, but thrive in a competitive environment.
Dr Mark Winwood, Director of Psychological Services for AXA PPP healthcare, comments: “Resilience doesn’t mean avoiding risk, it’s about learning from experiences and recognising opportunities. Like any set of skills, we can develop and strengthen resilient behaviours, traits and beliefs by making subtle changes to our lives, our relationships and our thinking – it just takes practice. For example, addressing our work-life balance and taking time to identify and focus on our strengths and priorities can increase our ability to bend rather than break when confronted by adversity.”

A physically or mentally demanding lifestyle can leave you feeling drained, especially if you don’t balance this out by getting sufficient, good quality sleep. This, in turn, affects how resilient you may feel. To help reduce sleep disturbance and help you feel more alert you could try:
Supporting and comforting others can enable you to learn from each other so thinking about who your support network is and what types of support they offer can help. This could include:
When your attitude towards something is balanced and rational it can support your resilience as it helps you to have a clear view of reality and see the bigger picture. For example:
Having a clear sense of purpose for yourself and your business is key to developing and maintaining a positive outlook. This includes understanding what matters to you most. For example:
