Emotional flexibility

This is a trait that helps us adjust more easily to new circumstances, challenges and situations as they arise.

  • Whether it’s starting a new job, taking a new class or getting married, being cognitively flexible helps us to grow and get along better with others.

The good news is that there are some simple strategies you can incorporate into your life to help you become more flexible and adjust more easily to change.
