British Red Cross- 5 activities of kindness and resilience

Resilience means learning how to cope with uncertainty, how to make the most of the resources and connections you have around you, and how to adapt to changing situations.

Kindness is a big part of resilience: without kindness and support, dealing with difficult situations becomes much harder. Building resilience is also being kind to yourself, so that challenges become easier in the future. Resilience and kindness build a stronger you and a stronger community.

Here are five suggested activities for developing resilience and kindness. You can use your power of kindness calendar to track and tick off your kind acts. These activities are designed for parents, teachers, young people, children and families as a whole. They can be completed independently or together.
