Shaye's Pick | Thoughts about Resilience
Recently I listened to a great podcast titled "Resiliency Trumps Happiness" that made me stop and think a little —just a little ;).
It dawned on me after listening to it that yoga and meditation don't necessarily MAKE us happy but they do make us more resilient. Resiliency is really the key as it allows us to come back from a setback in our lives or even perceive it differently which in turn produces feelings of accomplishment and yes, even feelings of being happy.
This article from Psychology Today takes it a step further and says resiliency trumps resistance and I agree. As we say, "what you resist persists."
