In the previous two articles in this series, we explored the concept of resilience and its different types. We also discussed how human design can help us to understand our own unique resilience and how to move forward in life.
In this article, we will take a deeper look at how to use human design to build resilience. We will discuss the following topics:
Understanding your unique resilience type
Identifying your strengths and weaknesses
Developing coping mechanisms
Building a support system
Understanding Your Unique Resilience Type
The first step to building resilience is to understand your unique resilience type. There are four main resilience types, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
Emotionally resilient: Emotionally resilient people are able to manage their emotions effectively and bounce back from setbacks quickly.
Socially resilient: Socially resilient people have a strong support network and are able to connect with others easily.
Cognitively resilient: Cognitively resilient people are able to think critically and solve problems effectively.
Physically resilient: Physically resilient people are able to take care of their physical health and recover from injuries quickly.
To identify your unique resilience type, you can take a human design chart. Your human design chart will reveal your energy type, strategy, and authority. This information can help you to understand your strengths and weaknesses, as well as the best way to build resilience.

Identifying Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Once you understand your unique resilience type, you can begin to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Your strengths are the things that help you to cope with stress and adversity. Your weaknesses are the areas where you need to develop more resilience.
For example, if you are emotionally resilient, one of your strengths might be your ability to manage your emotions effectively. However, one of your weaknesses might be your tendency to isolate yourself when you are feeling stressed.
By identifying your strengths and weaknesses, you can develop strategies to build resilience in all areas of your life.
Developing Coping Mechanisms
Coping mechanisms are strategies that you use to manage stress and adversity. Some common coping mechanisms include:
Talking to a therapist or counselor
Spending time with loved ones
Engaging in activities that you enjoy
It is important to develop a variety of coping mechanisms so that you have something to rely on when you are feeling stressed.
Building a Support System
A support system is a network of people who you can count on for help and encouragement. Having a strong support system can help you to cope with stress and adversity more effectively.
Your support system can include family, friends, therapists, counselors, and other support groups. It is important to build a support system that is tailored to your individual needs.
By understanding your unique resilience type, identifying your strengths and weaknesses, developing coping mechanisms, and building a support system, you can build resilience and thrive in the face of adversity.
Here are some additional tips for using human design to build resilience:
Live in alignment with your strategy and authority. This will help you to stay grounded and centered, even in the face of challenges.
Honor your energy type. This means understanding your unique needs and rhythms, and taking care of yourself accordingly.
Be kind to yourself. Everyone experiences setbacks and challenges. It is important to be compassionate with yourself and to allow yourself to feel your emotions.
Celebrate your successes. It is important to acknowledge your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem. This will help you to build your confidence and resilience.
Remember, resilience is a skill that can be learned and developed. By using human design and following the tips above, you can build a resilient life.
