If getting strength in difficult times is as easy as we say, why can’t everyone do it? We are in a situation that is not easy. In situations that upset everyone, our role is added to the increasingly abundant demands. How can you stay healthy in a situation like this? Can we get back up and jump higher (resilient)? Then, how can we become more resilient individuals? Then this answer will be explained in the national webinar activity SDGs series 1 presented by Faculty of Psychology of Diponegoro University.
The theme of resilience is chosen because life is not only filled with pleasant moments, but also obstacles and problems. In order for us to deal with life’s problems well, resilience is very important to have. Resilience doesn’t just refer to how well you can manage stress and pressure effectively. Resilience is also about how well you can bounce back from these problems.
