Many of us live in a stressful world where we’re constantly rushing from one commitment to the next. And while a little stress can be good for motivation and productivity, chronic stress can cause disease.
But there’s an antidote to this stress. It's simple, easy, quick and free. Here's how to make it a habit.
One of our Wild Women, Angela, set herself a challenge. To get up when it was still dark to watch the sunrise every morning. Even when it was freezing. Even when she just wanted to turn off her alarm and stay in bed.
Staying inside your comfort zone is easy. Safe. Comfortable. And that's a lovely thing. But if you do it too much, it can make life feel stagnant, monotonous and unexciting. The longer you stay there, the smaller it gets. The more uncomfortable things feel. Stay there too long, and you lose your ability to deal with challenges, to cope when life hits you with things that hurt. You lose your resilience, your ability to bounce back.
This week, we're going to teach you how to build your resilience so you can feel strong, confident and joyful. Let's do this!
