Being resilient does not mean you do not experience stress. Rather, resilience is the ability to recover from stress efficiently and effectively, as well as to have a higher threshold for it. It’s a combination of behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be developed through training.
Most resiliency tests only measure the ability to deal with stress mentally and emotionally. But the physiological responses to stress are critical factors that should never be ignored. The chemical and hormonal responses to stress directly affect the structure of your brain in addition to how it functions, both mentally as well as emotionally. In addition, these changes in chemistry also affect hunger, cravings, sleep, body fat, immunity and many other physiological systems.
This evaluation is designed to help you notice the things you are doing well, as well as the areas that may need additional attention and work. You receive a detailed explanation of your score on total resiliency, as well as your specific scores for physical, emotional and mental resiliency.
