How would you define resilience?

Resilience, to me, refers to the ability to bounce back or keep going, despite our own or others' reservations, whilst being self-compassionate and self-caring. It's being patient with oneself as you adapt and grow to be who you want to be.

What does wellness mean to you?

Wellness, to me, encompasses both physical and mental health. It includes being able to feel each emotion and experience them as they come without feeling stuck.
