Key Takeaways 

• Consider how you interpret the situation, try to think about it on a 1-10 level not labelling it bad, catastrophic or terrible. 

• Resilient people will react to the situation positively. 

• Mentally tough people will deal with the stressors and pressures better than mentally sensitive people over the long term. 

• The ability to stay present will help you – as David describes how the situation reminds him when his wife Alex was diagnosed with 3 brain tumours and melanoma cancer and sadly died in 2008. 

• Create a well-being menu to help your mental health. 

• Ask yourself the following questions – What helps me be better person to be around?  How do I want to be? How can I utilise and adapt my environment to help me? What gives me energy?
