Clinical Psychologist Suzanne Kobasa Phd aimed to increase hardiness in stressed individuals and she came up with three key elements she had seen in the hardy.
1. By focusing – on the physical signs of stress and become aware when they are starting
2. Reconstructing stress situations – The hardy think about recent stress situations and evaluate how it could have turned out better. They try and learn from a recent experience
3. Compensating through self-improvement – if a stressor cannot be changed, they learn to accept and master it
Face the stress of invitation and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church and remember suffering leads to perseverance, perseverance character and character hope.
