3) Pump the right fuel. Food fuels the human engine, so fill up on energy-boosting whole grains, fruits and vegetables to see performance increase.
4) Laugh it up. Using a sense of humor increases feel-good hormones called endorphins, which improve emotional state as well as physical being. A belly laugh also forces deep breathing.
5) Visualize the future. Rehearsing in the mind about acquiring a new skill or attitude or even a dream house helps create a new reality. Paint a detailed mental picture of what is desired.
6). Exercise the brain. Resilient people are good thinkers and problem-solvers. Exercises that improve right-brain/left-brain connections such as puzzles, using your non-dominant hand, even skipping and jumping rope help build new brain pathways.
7). Stay cool. Avoid letting emotions take over. A person can’t think clearly or solve problems from an emotional roller coaster.
