rev up resilience



A path to Rev Up your resilience is through daily Movement and Mindfulness!


Daily Movement: Foster your wellness and those around you by making it a point to find a few minutes (5, 10, 20+) of self-care movement every day. Find the right "steps" for you! Get outside for a short walk, take a few deep breaths, laugh, take a walk/talk with a friend, Run, Jog, Hike, Yoga on and on – whatever works for you – each step and daily repetitiveness leads to new neural pathways of positivity and resilience in your brain.


Daily Positivity: Negative thoughts stick like Velcro and Positive thoughts slide off like Teflon. It’s just the way the human brain is programmed. For every 1 negative thought we have, it takes 3-5 positive ones to overcome our brain. Here are some simple ways to Rev Up the positive:

  • Use a Gratitude Journal. Leave beside your nightstand and each morning or evening take a pause and jot down what comes to your mind that you appreciated in the day.

  • Find an Gratitude App. Not into paper & pen? Take the same steps thru an App.

  • Read the Positive Journal. 5-minutes a day toward a Happier Life!

  • Follow in Lin Manuel Miranda's steps: Sure, you may think it's "easy" to be positive when you are talented, rich and famous - but even people like Lin Manuel Miranda work at their mental resilience. Check out his book: Gmornin' Gnight! Little Pep Talks


Daily Mindfulness: Mindfulness means being present. Stopping your brain from thinking about the past or the future and just "be". Taking this time builds patience. Patience builds perseverance. Perseverance leads to Resilience!

  • Embrace Meditation. Try the Calm App or Head Space. Or just find space to sit in quiet for even just 1-2 minutes a day.

  • Mindful Meals. At least once a day, pause and really taste the foods and beverages you are putting inside your body.

  • Slow Down and be Still. This is not an easy one for me! But I make attempts every day to find even 1-2 minutes to just step outside and dare I say, sit down, and just Be-still.

Here's an article on the neuroscience of resilience if you'd like more information.
