How Gratitude Can Help You Build Resilience

Published: March 31, 2023
Reflections on Resilience

As health care workers, we’re often faced with difficult, life-changing events. How we bounce back from these tough situations and build resilience may be different for each of us. There are many paths to becoming resilient. 

Each quarter on Employee Connections, the Resilience Committee will present one pathway to a more resilient life by starting with a single word. It will act as a springboard for reflection and discussion to help you incorporate resilience into your daily life. You’ll find opportunities for support through activities, challenges, inspiration from your coworkers and advice from experts – all beginning with just one word.

This quarter: Gratitude

Please see the resources below for ideas and inspiration, and don’t hesitate to share them with your colleagues!
