Episode #3: The Queen’s Death

This week we acknowledge the death of the Queen, and reflect on individual differences in how we cope with challenges and change.

Our RESILIENCE research feels very relevant this time.

We discuss what it takes to develop resilience, and why some people can cope with the same challenging circumstances where others struggle.

We look at the importance of our values and beliefs, and how those are shaped through our upbringing.

We then discuss some common myths about resilience, such as “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”, and that this can be the opposite at neurobiological and genetic levels.

We explain how resilience looks at the epigenetic level, where specific genes can be switched on or suppressed, and what we can do to influence this process to intentionally shape the ‘evolution of resilience’ rather than by chance.
