Building mental resilience is often about embracing and accepting who you are, as you are. Giving yourself time to reflect, talk about and practice vulnerability is one way to build the resilience you might need when times get tough.

Building mental resilience is an ongoing journey and its worth remembering that there will always be highs and lows.
