    • If I had known this years ago, my life could’ve been so different. 
    • Since completing the Resilience workshop, my outlook on life has completely changed. I’m far less stressed. 
    • If it wasn’t for the Resilience workshop, I’d currently be out on stress leave
    • I can see things with a bit more perspective now
    • Resilience is definitely the super power that we should all learn to tap into!
    • I loved the body and mind piece  as the brain can influence the health of the body, and the workshop really helped me to understand and practice this.
    • Resilience to me is all about positive thinking.  Thoughts becomes things; choose the good ones! You have the power to choose. 
    • I feel like these are skills everyone should learn and practice not only in bad times, but also fully feeling the good times too.
    • A good reset.
