Emotional Agility and Courage

It can often be that we think that in order to have positive health and wellbeing, that we have to be positive about everything that comes our way. But that is not always going to be possible. Sometimes, we are going to be challenged by situations that do bring us negative emotions, but it is important to go through these in order to learn and grow. Being Resilient does not always mean that you immediately bounce back after a set back. Sometimes, in order to learn from these challenges, we need to let ourselves be sad, be angry, be disappointed, so that we can move forward knowing how to avoid putting ourselves in that position again.

The TED talk below, shows why and how this is important.
