Without good quality sleep, nutrition, exercise and relationships the ability to be resilient becomes a distant dream.

Research has shown that laughing can be good for our immune system through the increased level of T lymphocytes and in particular the subset known as NK (natural killer) cells.

Our resilience is not just challenged by world events or working life, it is often be tested by family and friends.  Whilst a disagreement with a family member may be over something quite trivial the connectivity is greater meaning that the associated ‘emotional tariff’ can amplify things.

Are you a people-pleaser? Do you dread saying no to events and friends because you are afraid of what people might think of you? Prominent coach, Martha Beck, said: ‘When it comes to saying yes or no, choose the answer that feels like freedom.’

This quadrant looks at the relationship between energy and focus.
To complete the template think about your life over the past month, and attribute a percentage score to each of the quadrants, for example:

  • Purposeful 40%
  • Chaos 30%
  • Pause10%
  • Fatigue 20%

You can do this exercise for life in its entirety, or just life at work or life away from work.
Once you have added the numbers, add some commentary as to why your score is what it is.
