​Resilience is the key

It was 6:30am and I dragged my body out of bed. My joints creaked, I was cranky from not enough sleep, and I was feeling more than a little sorry about last night’s takeaway still burning a hole in my stomach. I thought to myself “geez, what am I going to be like when I’m 80?”. That used to be me. I tried a bunch of diets, none of which worked. I’d join a gym for a month or two, then quit because I wasn’t making progress fast enough. Then I’d sit at home and snarf pretzels and chocolate brownies.

It’s been a long journey but today I’m in a whole different place: Well, mostly…I’m still a little cranky in the mornings because I’m an owl, not a lark. But hey, we all have our burdens to bear! I will never be a size 2 again (that was just crazy), but I’m energetic, lighter, more focused, and enjoying life a lot more. More importantly I’m going to be in perfect shape to achieve my (very) long-term goal – to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro on my 80th birthday.

What it all boils down to is resilience. The ability to get back up after failures and the shit that life throws at you. To be able to sit with discomfort – pain, embarrassment, loneliness, anger – and not feel the need to take refuge in food, electronica, or any one of the many other ways we find to derail ourselves. To know that taking care of your physical, mental and spiritual health (whatever that means for you) is the greatest gift you can give yourself. But most of all, to know in your heart of hearts that a bad day does not a bad life make.

What ​builds resilience?

​Some people are born with more resilience than others, but it's definitely something that you can build starting any time in your life. ​These are the things that will help you develop ​the ability to bounce back:

  • Good nutrition
  • ​Quality sleep
  • Adequate hydration
  • A regular mindfulness practice
  • Regular exercise
  • Community
