RESILIENT ME: How to Worry Less and Achieve More


RESILIENT ME: How to Worry Less and Achieve More

SAM OWEN    Book Number: 88116    Product format: Paperback

This practical self-help guide promises "four weeks to inner strength" using "resilience" as the goal. The human brain evolves to meet new challenges in the world, referred to as "neuroplasticity", and you can reprogramme your brain to activate resilience as an automatic habit. The three pillars of resilience identified by the author are first, a positive outlook on challenges, embracing them proactively rather than engaging in the self-sabotage of viewing ourselves as victims or evaluating challenges as a block to our goals. The second pillar is a driving motivation to achieve the end goal. This means identifying your true priorities, not the ones others think you should have. The third is adopting a problem-solving approach, meaning that you identify difficulties honestly and work to overcome your fears. Throughout all this it is important to remember that "words shape our experience of an experience". Taking control of your thoughts and the way you express things to yourself is a central feature of developing resilience. A chapter on the Power of Thinking explains the value of mindfulness, remaining in the moment, and suggests ways of retraining the brain in response to standard triggers, for instance if the kids are going wild you can retrain your response to be not one of panic but of calm and assertiveness. Nurturing our relationships is important, both for the support of personal friendship and also the experience of group resilience. The book empahsises creative problem solving and goals for life, encouraging the reader to work through the programme in a practical way. 244pp, paperback.
