21 Days to Resilience Book Excerpt

This New Book Will Teach You to Become Resilient in Just 3 Weeks

Resilience: it's something most of us want, but don't have. The truth of the matter? It's entirely too easy to sink into a muddy funk during the bad times . . . and totally forget when they were good. Dr. Zelana Montminy is the author of 21 Days to Resilience: How to Transcend the Daily Grind, Deal With the Tough Stuff, and Discover Your Strongest Self, out on April 5. In the book, she teaches readers to see challenges as opportunities, and to discover inner strength during struggles. Read the excerpt ahead:

We do so much of what we think will make us blissful but so many of us are unhappier than ever before. The code to unlocking happiness and success isn't the quest for it after all. Groundbreaking research shows that happiness is in fact much easier to attain if we stop focusing on it so much. Although this might sound counterintuitive, happiness shouldn't be the end goal if you really want to be happy. Research has actually exposed several negative side effects of happiness, particularly that too much of the wrong type of happiness, experienced at an improper time, pursued in the wrong way, can be damaging. The antidote: undertake resilience instead.

There are many books out there explaining why resilience is important. This book is about how to build it. I'm giving you a tool kit — your very own practical day-by-day guide — that offers ways to strengthen the 21 factors that increase resilience, from social support to emotional intelligence to gratitude.

This is your training manual. Think of this as a three-week boot camp to hasten the resilience building process. But don't expect to master it all right away; that's purposeful. We build physical strength gradually, and this book works the same way.

A training manual to mental stamina? Count us in.
