Today I have been contemplating the importance of RESILIENCY. I am preparing for a "Mentor Moms" Panel for our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) program. One question asks, "What attributes of your kids make you most proud." Resiliency is the ability to bounce back; a resilient person is not cocky or overly confident, quite the opposite. They have a clear sense of their potential, capability, capacity and ability to get through difficult times; they typically come out as strong or stronger than they were before the challenging circumstance. Quarantine is a time to develop, model and build resiliency. From a physical perspective, resiliency refers to being elastic in quality, able to stretch but return to an object's original form. Pilates and yoga in particular, can help develop both a physical and emotional resiliency. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable and life feels less stressful. This picture of my daughter "mutton busting" at 5 years old (probably an epic parent fail for granting permission) reminds me of the strength that comes from being outside of our comfort zone.
