Stress is a factor of everyday life, yet a crisis such as the current Coronavirus Covid-19 situation brings with it a whole new magnitude of change. The unprecedented level of change, uncertainty and fear all increase physiological and psychological stress levels. Our ability to cope with such stresses, both short and long term is often called resilience. People deemed as resilient appear to have a combination of behaviours and characteristics in common. This commonality between these individuals helps explain why they may appear to or even cope better than others in times of prolonged stress. The full article looks at resilience in more detail and what we all can learn from these resilient people. The article is just one of a group of articles the author has called the (#homesurvivalpack). The aim is to help people cope with working from home and with other challenges the lockdown brings. Resilience in the face of adversity, uncertainty and the covid-19 situation
