Who will you listen to actively today?

How about closing your eyes…right now?

Most jobs are now performed in front of a computer screen and it is very easy to get tired. For an immediate refresh, close your eyes for a few seconds, then let go of all the muscles around the eyes. The University of Surrey scientists even say that shutting eyes frees up brainpower!

Whether it is at work, at home, or elsewhere, life often throws curveballs at us. How can we prepare to face these unexpected challenges?

A professional coach, author and the co-founder of Resilience Institute Europe, Alexia invites us to develop our resilience. In physics, resilience describes the resistance of materials to impact. The term was taken up in therapy, and then in coaching, to refer to the ability to withstand upheavals.

Far from being a simple wellness practice, resilience takes a preventive and holistic approach. It offers tools to develop a solid foundation that integrates body, heart, mind and spirit. In building this foundation, we are better prepared to deal with the difficulties that may arise. We also strengthen the ability to have a positive impact on the lives of others.

Listen now to our conversation with Alexia and discover her insights to cultivate your own resilience.
