Check out some of the tips below and try to implement them into your daily recovery routine. They will help build your ability to recognize a curveball and help you adapt for success.


Self-Care Isn’t Selfish

If you want to be ready for the difficult situations life throws at you, it’s time to spend some conscious effort taking care of yourself. We know that you have other responsibilities, but taking care of yourself is important too. Let go of the mindset that tells you that self-care is selfish. Instead, focus on putting your well-being first. Make sure you are eating healthy, having enough restful sleep, and exercising regularly. Allow yourself time to recharge when necessary so that you don’t find yourself dealing with burnout. Putting yourself first is important. It’s crucial to remember that self-care isn’t selfish.


Stretch Your Comfort Zone

If you never leave your comfort zone, it’s impossible to be ready for life’s curveballs. We encourage you to stretch your comfort zone every once in a while. Try something new, even if it makes you a little nervous. Don’t let fear keep you from becoming your best self. Every time you challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone, you’re slowly building up that resilience reservoir.
