Focusing on your resilience right now can help you get through tough times. There are several things that contribute to your resilience and connecting with other people can improve them all. That’s why we should work on Building Resilience Together. Start by reaching out to a group of 5 to 10 people and talking about what you are going through. Getting together virtually with small circle of people can help you foster hope, make a plan, take care of yourself and find meaning. It can help you cope now and get ready not just to bounce back, but to bounce forward.

We’ve created a Women in Agriculture Learning Circle Guide: Building Resilience Together to help you and provide structure for your circle’s conversations and activities.
