"There's always help if I need it."

"What they say doesn't define me."

Ideas for Resilience...

By Vanessa Vu

No matter what others say or think about you, only you can decide whether to be affected by their actions. Combat any negativity by reminding yourself how incredible you are! Saying things to yourself such as "I'm smart and funny", and "I look cute today" can make a massive difference to how you feel. You don't need anybody to remind yourself of these things; just you!

Positive Self-Talk...

"It's not the end of the world."

No matter how bad something might seem, think about how much it will matter in the future. Will this matter in five years? Ten years? Chances are, it won't!

No matter how hopeless you may be feeling, remind yourself that there is always help available, such as close family, friends, or even teachers. If you don't feel you can turn to them for help, a counsellor or psychologist is always there to help you out.

Exercise, meditate, practice yoga or some other form of relaxation on a regular basis. These activities (when practiced regularly) not only help you relax after a stressful day, they help make more impervious to stress in the future.

Before going to bed, make a mental list of everything you have to be grateful for. Gratitude is one of the basic underpinnings of contentment and stress resilience.

We all have a tendency to overexxagerateand believe that the worst possible scenario is the only scenario. Try your best to move through times of crisis knowing that eventually you are going to come out OK on the other side.

Learn how to compromise. It may be inflexible thinking that got you into that stressful crisis in the first place.

See setbacks as temporary.

Be grateful.

See setbacks as temporary.

Build coping resources
