Resilience and Waves and Windows

Recommended Posts

I just came across this article on my feed today that talks about resilience: 

https://hbr.org/2016/06/resilience-is-about-how-you-recharge-not-how-you-endure

 

The basic idea is that resilience is not about constantly testing your limits but you build resilience by challenging yourself and then resting. And it occurred to me, that maybe that is what the body is doing with the windows and waves. It is basically letting us rest. I am not sure I would have been able to endure this hell without any windows. So maybe we are building resilience through this process? 

 

Note that the article is written about business and work stress which compared to what I am going through right now seems trivial;  though a year ago seemed very important and just as life and death. 

 

(I know there are some who don't get windows for years and can't imagine how hard that is. My first short window at about 6 months was a godsend.)
