I’ve had requests to talk about resilience and endurance during this time where moms are home with their kids in isolation.
Endurance is responding to stress for a duration of time. We can endure a certain amount of stress but eventually we burn out.
Then we turn to resilience: the ability to bounce back from stress.
I think this is the place a lot of us moms are in right now.
We have endured the first two weeks of isolation and now we realize that this is how things will stay for a while. Now we need to move out of stress mode and into a more intentional mode.
Resilience has three steps:

What are your values and how can you make a plan for yourself?
The importance of compassion and acceptance
