Cultivate Calm, Clarity, Optimism & Happiness Each Day
101 Mindful Ways to Build Resilience demonstrates that the real secret to bouncing back from life’s toughest roadblocks, wounds and obstacles is not secret at all—but simply the skills of applying mindfulness to whatever new problem knocks on your door each day.
Mindfulness works because it rewires your brain and dramatically changes your relationship to the problem. These skills let you tap and apply the four keys to resilience found in the book. What are the four necessary ingredients of resilience? They are:
1) calm and emotional regulation so that you can respond rather than react
2) mental clarity to solve problems and be flexible in doing so
3) a positive attitude and optimism to give you the energy and motivation needed to move forward
4) happiness that comes from connecting with others, and utilizing the resources that others have to offer
These resilience resources mirror the four sections found in 101 Mindful Ways to Build Resilience.
Simply put, the 101 mindfulness ‘tools’ in this book will give you newfound hope, optimism, and strength. Each section is filled with targeted, one-page action plans designed to get you moving forward in a direct and helpful way.
These are simple, yet powerful mindfulness practices that you can apply in just a minute to two — whether you’re facing something extremely annoying or seemingly insurmountable. Those you know may think you’re found a secret elixir to wash away your problems. But you’ll know the secret is just retraining your brain with 101 Mindful Ways to Build Resilience.
