How can educators help foster stress resilience in their students?
We all have stress. It’s a universal human experience. The key is to not let stress become our identity.
Instead, with and open mindset and the right set of resilience skills we have the opportunity to reach a whole new level of purpose and well-being.
Stress Resilience for Success
At the start of my stress presentation at the guidance counsellors forum, I discuss how resilience begins with a strength mindset. And equally that openness to challenge is essential for success.
Too much time in our comfort zone stalls growth.
Feeling safe is important. But we shouldn’t consider it a resting place. More of a launching pad!
Reframe openness as a verb and challenge your students to try something new today.

I love this idea. I missed much of my adolescence and so have trouble with big life changes, but viewing them as challenges rather than threats makes a huge difference.
Good for you! Your words reveal how open & willing you are to a shift your perception. Seeds of a growth mindset. 🌷🌿
Thank you! That’s a compliment indeed.
Love your sentiments here and it’s so true. It’s far too easy and comfortable to be complacent and not want to move but that doesn’t get us anywhere, literally or otherwise.
Amen Miriam! If we want to reach the next rung on the ladder, we have to be willing to let go of the old one. Risk and reward go hand in hand.
They certainly do.
You are such a great speaker! I loved your talk! It’s timely for me. I’m on the fence of a new teaching position. I’m trying to find the balance between work and family. I feel grateful to have options. I’m going to consider the “big” picture of my life and family as a whole. Have a wonderful weekend, Andrea!
Thank you Ipuna! For taking the time to watch the video & for your kind words. Wishing you well as you navigate your decision about teaching positions. I love how you always find gratitude, no matter the circumstances. Only good things can come from an abundant (and growth) mindset like yours.
Thank you, Andrea. Figuring out the “next move” in life is never easy, but I’m sure it will be great. I appreciate your kind words. Keep spreading all of your good words!
