7. Setting goals is a proven way to improve emotional resilience
Not having goals reduces resilience and having goals increases resilience. Without goals you are a like a rudderless ship that will easily sink in stormy seas. Having goals will give you a sense of purpose and help to keep you focused and in control.
What to do: Make a list of any goals you already have, and then add any other things that you wish to accomplish to the list. Track your progress and update the list regularly.
