All CrossFitters want to be known as “resilient”. Resilience is a great word, which means the capacity to quickly recover from difficulties.

The American Psychological Association suggests “10 Ways to Build Resilience”, which are:
- maintaining good relationships with close family members, friends and others;
- to avoid seeing crisis or stressful events as unbearable problems;
- to accept circumstances that cannot be changed;
- to develop realistic goals and move towards them;
- to take decisive actions in adverse situations;
- to look for opportunities of self-discovery after a struggle with loss;
- developing self-confidence;
- to keep a long-term perspective and consider the stressful event in a broader context;
- to maintain a hopeful outlook, expecting good things and visualizing what is wished;
- to take care of one’s mind, body, exercising regularly, paying attention to one’s own needs and feelings.
Think about how you could improve your mindset, every single day, in every single situation… so that you can be more resilient in the box, when the WOD gets tough.
Improve how you respond to things that catch you off guard. Improve how you react when people act crazy. Improve your outlook on things that may challenge you.
