Resilience is noun referring to the ability to be strong and recover easily and quickly from unpleasant or damaging events. So, obviously, resilience is going to be a key word for me in 2017!!

The quote for this week is quite important in regards to resilience. It is by Hans Selye, an Austrian scientist who was one of the first to discover that there was good and bad stress. He says, “It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” I agree, and think that people who show a lot of resilience are people who are able to control their reactions to stress better than others. What do you think of this idea?
