That fits my experience too. Of the utmost importance for me was changing things up until I had work that I really liked. Then I tried to take my leisure time and make it into something that was truly restorative and enlivening. Of course none of us is living a hundred percent resilient life… Everybody gets overwhelmed sometimes or drops a ball that should have been kept up in the juggle! But it was learning healthier habits of self-talk, scheduling downtime, and giving myself permission to pursue hobbies and activities in which I got lost in that pleasant state of Flow that really made the difference for me.
