    There’s no doubt about it we’re living through one of the most challenging periods in living memory.

    In challenging times, we need our resilience and mental tuffness to get us through. It doesn’t mean we need to feel happy or positive all the time. But it does mean that when we get knocked down, we get back up again, and have confidence that better days are ahead.

    Here's how to build your resilience (and make life a little easier).

    Diet and exercise. 

    That was the prescription for ‘health’ I grew up with. Broccoli and burpees. Cutting carbs and doing crunches. Spinach and spin classes.  

    It wasn’t until after I was diagnosed with depression that I realised this health equation was missing a key ingredient.

    Have you ever used exercise as a way to punish your body? Have you ever seen exercise as a way to ‘make up’ for the food you ate or as a way to get rid of that extra skin on your tummy?
