Resilience is hard won. It’s not a straight line. It’s full of unforeseen dips, reversals, bends, and twists. Although these redirects may feel
like setbacks, they’re precisely when you’re on the verge of your next breakthrough.
In Volume 17 of this guest series, Psychotherapist, Dr. Francis L. Battisti and Nutritionist, Dr. Helen Battisti guide us in staying present on the journey and staying the course, especially when its most challenging.
For over 10 years, they have worked closely with us on aging concerns and have presented many webinars and in-person workshops. Their newsletter, The Zone, is a weekly mental health and nutrition tip sheet during times of change.
- The path to a resilient lifestyle is full of uneven and unexpected terrain.

- Stay hydrated. This means, daily 6-8 cups of fluid for women and 7-9 cups of fluid for men.
- Be a prophet of Bloom not Gloom.
- Make connections with others.
- “Throwing in the towel”
- Excessive alcohol consumption because it can contribute to dehydration.
- Sitting and staying in one-place for too long.
