Teammates

Resilience

When presented with life’s challenges, we need a combination of resilience role models, tools, strategies and protected time to help us bounce back.

Being compassionate to ourselves and others can provide a necessary boost we need to handle our roles at home, work and in life.

For information about mental health benefits and resources to support the mental health and well-being of teammates and their family members, visit the Mental Health Support page.

Practice Emotional and Personal Well-Being

Resilience Reboot

August 16 - September 20

What is Resilience Reboot? It’s a 6-part email series designed to help teammates build Resilience. This series is available for Greater Charlotte and Atrium Health Navicent teammates.

Building resilience doesn’t mean you won’t experience stress or suffering. Rather, building resilience is developing the skills to endure life’s challenges. It’s tapping into your inner strength and identifying your support systems. It’s building your ability to adapt to hardships with healthy coping behaviors and coming out of those hardships with your mental and emotional health intact.

Here’s how it works: Becoming more resilient takes time and practice. Each week teammates will receive one email featuring a short list of resilience-building actions. These can be completed at any point throughout the week. Try all the recommended actions or just a few. It’s not a one size fits all. There is no quiz. This is simply for teammates to experiment, step outside their comfort zone and identify individual needs and solutions when life throws a curveball.

Subscribe to the Resilience Reboot email series. Be sure to use an email you check weekly. You will receive one email at the start of each week beginning Monday, August 16 through Monday, September 20.

Teammates can subscribe at any time between August 16 and September 20 and receive all activities.
