Resilience is our bodies’ natural capacity to bounce back from difficulty. It takes a few minutes to learn to regulate our nervous system, and short resilience practices aimed at calming the nervous system, have been found to be very beneficial in managing stress and the uncertainty we face. Practising resilience skills also helps us in the long run to cultivate a sense of stability and clarity in terms of work and home life.
This training course is based on qualitative evidence-based neuroscience research. It explains how the brain and nervous system works and how one can regulate one's body and mind in daily life. Participants are taught to do short practices to regulate the nervous system and gain emotional stability. These resilience practices also builds our mindfulness muscle, and many people who have done this training then follow up with the mindfulness course, as a long-term method to sustain resilience. This course has been offered throughout the pandemic in 2020 and has been very well received by people from all walks of life, including the medics and front-line workers in hospitals who are struggling with severe stress and trauma.
