How to Be Resilient in Hard Times and Coping With Adversity

No one ever said life would be easy. And, unfortunately, sometimes hard times hit us like a ton of bricks.

Whether it's the death of a loved one, a job loss, or a major health diagnosis, these trials can be incredibly tough to cope with.

However, it's important to remember that you are not alone. 

Every person goes through difficult times and we just have to learn to overcome them using various coping techniques. Here are some tips for becoming resilient in hard times and handling with adversity.


One of the most important things you can do when faced with adversity is to be mindful. This means being present in the moment and acknowledging your feelings without judgement. It can be helpful to practice mindfulness through meditation or simply by paying attention to your breath. When you are feeling overwhelmed, take a few deep breaths and focus on the present moment. Let go of the past, and try not to worry about the future. Remember, all that you can control is the "now", that is this very moment. 


Another thing to practice is digging deep inside and building strength. This doesn't mean that you have to be physically strong, but rather that you have an inner and mental strength that allows you to keep going even when times are tough. This might mean relying on your faith, family, or friends for support. Or, it could mean finding strength within yourself by practicing self-care. Setting goals is generally a good practice but it can also be daunting, so while it's good to have a positive vision of the future, try just focusing on one small step you can act on today that will move you forward.  


Lastly, resilience is key. This means being able to recover from difficult situations and learn from them. It's important to remember that you are not defined by your trials and tribulations. Rather, they are simply a part of your life story. When you are feeling down, try to focus on the positive aspects of your life and the good times that have come before. These tough times will eventually pass and you will be stronger for having gone through them.

It is important to note that being resilient isn't a trait. Experts say that it's a learned process that can take years to develop.  

Mindfulness, strength, and resilience are all important aspects of coping with adversity. But remember, what works for one person might not work for another, so it's important to find what works best for you. Hopefully, with these tips in mind, you can start on the path to becoming more resilient today.
