Life likes to throw curve balls at us all. What you do when it gets hard, and the tools you have in your toolbox to face those hard moments, can make all the difference. For leaders, whether you are a manager or entrepreneur your competitive edge will be your ability to remain resilient and hopeful despite facing difficult moments.
This past year I’ve added eight new strategies to help me stay resilient and maintain mental health. As someone who deals with mental health challenges (see my TEDxYYC talk to learn more), I believe it is important to keep finding new methods to help me maintain wellness but also to face difficult days head-on. It’s also worth noting that I do not work for or receive any compensation from these companies or brands, I just found them helpful and want to share what’s worked for me.
