We have developed 10 toolkits with 10 ways to raise resilience. You are invited to experiment with each toolkit and use it as often as you would like.
We have selected different videos from the internet, which are linked to the theme of the toolkits.
Some videos will give a more in depth explanation of the tool, others are examples of the tool in real life. Let this inspire you to look for more videos yourself. If you do not find the video suitable for your own situation, or interesting then skip it and go on to the next one.
Each partner has developed 2 webinars that correspond to one toolkit. The webinars explain the chosen tool, related exercises or tips and tricks.
The tips and tricks are designed to give you some extra activities that you could try implementing in your daily life. You do not need to try all of the toolkits, as some will be more relevant to you than others. Try to see the tips as an experiment, where you will have to experience some trial and error. If one tip does not work for you, try another one until you find the ones that you enjoy most. It is like the saying ‘Good practice makes fine art.’ The more you try out the tips, the easier they will get.
Don’t give up!
The Webinars explain the exercises. The exercises will help to test and challenge you in the tool that we have chosen. They will help you by encouraging you to reflect on your own situation and letting you experiment with different techniques. It is important to realise that this is merely the first step in becoming more resilient.
Sometimes the exercises will not solve all of your problems, but they might be able to shed a different light on your situation, enabling you to recognise both your areas of concern or causes of stress and your successes or energy-giving tasks, which help you to tackle the day. If you find it difficult to do the exercises by yourself, try asking someone you trust to do it with you.
You will see there are different types of exercises
- REFLECT exercises
- RECOGNISING exercises
- CASE STUDY exercises
- LITTLE QUESTIONNAIRES
Try to do the exercises that are most relevant to your situation. Sometimes it is best to spread it out and to not try to do everything at once. Try to get in the rhythm of doing one exercise per day, perhaps. By repeating an exercise, you will be able to really learn how to integrate it in your (work) life.
