Resilience First Aid Kit-Reflection Resilience is defined as; the ability to adapt to stressful, or difficult situations. If you are resilient, you are able to adapt to situations which trouble you without major difficulties. The task was to “Create a Resilience First-Aid Kit”. My resilience first aid kit includes items that I believe will assist someone to overcome problems, stress or hard situations that may occur throughout their time. The objects included in my first aid kit are; bath products, books, nail polish, a stress ball, earphones, a journal, a book filled with quotes/a friendship book, a movie and several tips. I included bath products because many believe that a nice, long bath helps you relax. If they are able to relax, they …show more content…
