Session five: flexible and accurate thinking
We all come up against things in life that we find difficult to deal with. Resilience is our ability to deal with difficulties without them getting us down. Some people describe this as our ability to bounce back.
The first step towards resilience is to be able to recognise that the way we think about a difficult situation can affect the way we feel and respond. The next steps are to check whether our thoughts are accurate and whether we need to be flexible and try to think differently about the situation.
