Life can be a challenge – long hours, multiple demands, lots of stresses. We often love it that way but it can dent your happiness. In order to keep up the intense life you want, you need to build yourself up. Start by constructing a personal model of resilience. Who are all the people who keep you sane? What are the activities that replenish you? How are you looking after yourself physically (sleep, diet, exercise) all the healthy stuff that can get overlooked? Psychologically, don’t neglect those activities that lift your mood, build relationships with key people that make you stronger.
