No one can be expected to stay calm and collected in every situation. Everyone gets stressed at work, or frustrated with that annoying coworker but it's important to know how to get back on your feet after a difficult day.
Professional resilience is the ability to bounce back after a setback or stressor. It's about being able to keep your head despite difficult times. When we're resilient, we're able to deal with difficult situations without getting overwhelmed. We stay calm and collected, even when things get tough.

Here are some tips to develop resilience:
1. Identify your triggers: What are the things that set off your stress response? Are they external factors like deadlines or challenging tasks at work, or are they internal factors like emotional baggage or negative self-talk? Once you know what triggers your stress response, you can start to manage and reduce those factors in your life.
2. Get enough sleep: When you're chronically stressed, lack of sleep can lead to increased levels of cortisol, which can further damage your mood and increase your risk of health problems. Make sure to get at least seven hours of sleep each night to help reduce your risk of chronic stress.
3. Exercise regularly: Taking regular exercise has been shown to reduce the levels of cortisol in the blood and improve moods in a number of studies.
So often, we find ourselves struggling with difficult life situations. Whether it’s a job loss, relationship strife, or some other tough challenge, the stress of it can be hard to handle. Keep an open mind towards possibility and don’t forget that every situation is unique and has the potential to provide growth if approached in the right way.
