How To Improve Resilence 
in Mid-Life

Much of the scientific research on resilience - our ability to bounce back from adversity - has focused on how to build resilience in children. But what about the grown-ups? It seems qualities we have gained from life experiences may give us an advantage over the young.  Read the findings in this very interesting article from the New York Times.  Click HERE
