Resilience Alphabet – Z is for Zebra

Of course it is! Robert M Sapolsky got our attention with regard to Zebras when he wrote his classic book “Why Zebras don’t get Ulcers.” We know that living in a constant state of stress is harmful for us and yet that is exactly what has been happening over recent weeks. That is why it is critical that we take seriously our need to actively and frequently find ways to give ourselves respite from the pressures of daily life in order to sustain our health and mental well-being, even if that is only for short bursts of time.

It is my strong belief that in order to serve others, including our family members and those we come into contact with through our work, or through other aspects of our lives, we do that best by looking after our own health and well-being.

I hope you have found simple and practical ideas in this Resilience Alphabet Blog which have given you ways for lighter and quieter moments, or simply ideas to pass the time and get creative. If you will miss the Resilience Alphabet Blogs every morning, just go back to A! I’m sure there are a few ideas back there that are worth thinking about again.

Z is also for The End. Although for me Endings are often an opportunity for something new. So I hope you will join me in the complimentary Resilience Time to Think Webinars which will be delivered through the medium of another Z – Zoom. These free 30 minute sessions will run on Monday evenings from next week and are open to everyone.

The action for today is simple – if you want to continue the Resilience journey, message me so I can give you details of how to continue the journey, or simply write Yes in the comments below.
