Want to have More Resilience? Change the Tape. 

By Raychel Perman

Resilient people bounce back from adversity. They are self-aware. They practice acceptance. They are OK with not having all the answers and they take care of themselves. They are flexible and don’t let adversity keep them down for long.

But how?

Enter cognitive restructuring. It’s one way you can develop more resilience.

A very useful technique that identifies inaccurate negative thoughts and then challenge and change them. It’s a practice derived from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and it helps you reduce depression, stress, anxiety, and cope with difficult events.

Let’s start with a confession:

I was scared to death to write this first blog post. Like procrastinate until the last hour, avoid at all costs, scared. Seems crazy right? I mean my job title literally says “CEO, Speaker, Author.”

Writing has been a passion for me since I was a little girl. I was always writing little stories and stapling lined pages together to make my books.
