Building individual resilience

Wesley LifeForce believes to be most effective in helping others we must first look after our own wellbeing. Here a few pointers:

  • look after your physical health
  • practise positive thinking – challenge negative thoughts
  • think well of yourself
  • invest time and energy in developing new skills
  • look after relationships
  • get involved in enjoyable community activities for example social or sporting, or volunteer
  • don’t tackle major problems alone – ask for help and support when you need it
