For those of you who attended TEDxOmaha in October, you will remember that Dr. Jeff Snell was the third speaker with a talk called Catastrophe is in the Eye of the Beholder. In his thought provoking talk Dr. Jeff Snell asks us to walk in another’s’ shoes and imagine, if you will, an accident has left you with your neck broken, your spinal cord damaged, unable to move your body. What would you do? While technology can provide amazing support, it is you and your resilience that is the critical factor. Posttraumatic growth, or the ability to “bounce back”, and adapt to change in a positive manner is pivotal to how you decide to react and take control of your life from that point on. To choose whether change is to be feared and avoided, or embraced and accepted? Jeff explores the neuroscience, but he also shares some very simple exercises that are relevant to all of us facing challenges and wanting to build resilience – starting with five minutes at the end of the day.
