The Resilience Institute delivers research-based resilience solutions to secure safe, resilient and productive workplaces. This video guide first appeared on its website.

As we await news on the possibility of a move to Level 3 lockdown, schools are still closed and many children are at home.

The Resilience Institute has created a unique set of 30 animations highlighting key skills and behaviours that support or risk our resilience and wellbeing.

Please share them with your kids. You can view the videos right here.

The education system, parents and children have been caught unprepared for an unprecedented lockdown, including the closure of most schools for up to a month.

Resilience enables kids (and their parents) to:

Bounce: recover from challenges and stressful situations

Grow: learn new skills and look after ourselves

Connect: build strong relationships and understand others

Flow: the ability to focus and get into ‘the zone’, whether creatively, in sports or play.
