4th of December – Four primary domains of resilience
There are four primary domains of resilience as highlighted in the diagram. To be fully resilient, it’s important to pay attention to all four domains because each has an effect on the other.
People who are naturally able to better self-regulate their emotions and maintain their cool and composure under pressure would be considered more emotionally resilient. It’s important to acknowledge that people who are naturally resilient in one domain can be in a low state of resilience overall if they allow their energy or internal battery to become drained in even just one of the others. The area in which most of us tend to waste a lot of energy unnecessarily and deplete our internal energy reserve is the emotional domain. Feelings like frustration, anger, resentment and anxiety burn a lot of extra energy. This produces more of the stress hormone cortisol which can stay in our system for many hours.
