Celebrating Resilience!

One Source EAP Connections – July 2021

I’ve spent the last month separating and transplanting my perennials. This process puts a lot of stress on the plants and, for the first week or so, they don’t look like they’ll survive. Then they stabilize and, within a month, they take off like gangbusters. Perennials are resilient!

The same is true for people put under significant stress. Even in the face of events that seem utterly unimaginable, resilience allows people to marshal the strength to not just survive, but to prosper.

During the height of COVID-19, we were all up-rooted from our normal lives. Like perennials, there is a period of adjustment before we begin to thrive again. For some, the adjustment has already taken place, for others it is in progress or is just beginning. Adjustment is a process and there are several ways you can actively build your own resilience.

Should you need support building your personal resilience, One Source EAP can help. To use your benefit, call (800) 300-0628. The Access Center is open 24/7/365.
