2. Improve your resilience
Resilience is how fast we are able to recover after facing adversity and resilience can be improved. We can’t keep bad things from happening to us, but we can become better at recovering from these situations.
The brain circuits implied are the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala (related to anxiety and fear).
What can I do? Meditation and relaxation exercises can also help improve resilience. However, to be fair, you would need between 7,000 and 10,000 hours of meditation practice. It’s a lot of time, but it’s worth it.
