Resilience training


Resilience is our natural capacity to bounce back from difficulty. It takes a few minutes to learn to regulate our nervous system, and short resilience practices aimed at calming the nervous system have been found to be very beneficial in managing stress and the uncertainty we face. Practising resilience skills also helps us in the long run to manage difficulties and cultivate a sense of stability and clarity in terms of work and home life.

This eight-week resilience course is based on neuroscience and explains how the brain and nervous system works and how one can regulate one's mind and body in daily life. It offers short practices to help regulate difficult emotions and build flexible mental responses to work and life stressors.
