8. Keeping an empathic and positive social network is a proven way to improve emotional resilience
The support of positive people who care about you will help bolster your resilience when the going gets tough. Being alone or surrounded by negative people will undermine your resilience. Connecting with caring people also releases oxytocin in the brain, which in turns helps in reducing stress.
What to do: Have at least one empathic person to communicate with in times of trouble. Just the knowledge that you are not alone in your suffering is enough to give your resilience a needed boost.
