Resilience: to be able to recover quickly from set backs

(Definition from the Encarta Dictionary)

Many of us are lacking in our abilities to spring back from our day-today lives. An indication this is happening if you find yourself experiencing any of the below:
•    Overeating
•    Feeling run-down
•    Getting every bug going
•    Having to haul yourself around
•    Everything feeling like an effort
•    Weight gain
•    Fatigue
•    Fed-Up
•    No desire to exercise

There are many reasons why your resilience may be under powered such as; an underlying infection, past or current medications, unhealthy food choices, negative lifestyle habits, lack of sleep, sub-optimal thyroid function, stress (real or imagined) and poor gut health.
I know only too well how it feels to be burnt out, fatigued and unhappy with my weight gain. I also know that life doesn’t have to be that way. Sure we will all have times when our workload stacks up and life seems to get in the way of taking any time for ourselves. It is in these times though that having robustness is crucial to prevent overeating and continual tiredness to set in.

We all have the chance to make a stand for our happiness and take charge of our health. Sometimes illness makes this difficult or even impossible to regain full health. The point however, is – to be at the best level you can be for your circumstances. If you are still breathing and not yet fully engaged in enhancing your health there is hope for you to make some improvements.

Once you develop greater resilience by enhancing your exercise routine and optimising your nutrition you will find you can live your life with more ease, happiness and fun.

Weight loss will become easier as you are not fighting hormones driving you to overeat. You will find a greater bonding with yourself, as you are taking care of what really matters in life which is you!

If you have resilience you will weather life’s knocks and bounce back. You will be more able to take on projects/ workload and have better relationships with others.
