R for Resilience | Boost Your Emotional Resilience

The Z to A of Life

Monday, 5 February 2024 - 17 minutes

Jules and Mark are here to talk about ways to build your emotional resilience in order to cope with life's pressures and stresses.

Don't panic! That's a phrase we hear a lot, but what's your emotional response to that? Probably to panic some more. Don't worry, the due date isn't until next week... Keep calm, it's just an exam... Relax, you can't change anything now.

We face countless situations every day that we don't want to be in. It's only natural for our fight or flight response to kick in and sometimes, make us want to run away. 

Emotional resilience is the mental strength to understand how you feel and how to stay in control. You might feel panicked, but your mind can acknowledge what has happened and allow you to focus on the task instead.

Head over to the Future Toolbox website for more tools, at www.futuretoolbox.co.uk. If you know a teen who is about to face exams, why not stop by the shop and get a copy of the Study Skills book, Smarten Your Study. This is also available on Amazon. The Future Toolbox also has a simple programme called, Smarten Your Study.

Please note, that in 2024, the Z to A podcast will be published on a fortnightly basis and will wrap around our new Brain or Shine podcast and blogs. You will also see an increase in more easily accessible online tools via the new look Future Toolbox website when it arrives.
