Resiliency

Resiliency is the ability to function really well in the face of adversity.

Resilience is defined as how one “deals effectively with pressure, ambiguous and emerging conditions, and multiple tasks; remains optimistic and persistent, even under adversity or uncertainty. Recovers quickly from setbacks. Anticipates changes and learns from mistakes.”

 

The DLA resilience model has four pillars:

  • Mental: The ability to effectively cope with mental stressors and challenges. Pay attention to your needs and feelings. Our thoughts control our energy.
  • Physical: The ability to adopt and sustain healthy behaviors. Regularly work out and continually monitor physical stamina. Recognize the connection between mind and body: strong bodies help build strong minds
  • Social:  The ability to network. Build and value interpersonal relationships and social networks. Social connections with others widen perceptions and grow character.
  • Spiritual: The ability to adhere to beliefs, principles, or values needed to persevere and prevail in accomplishing missions.
