We be­lieve we can all learn to be more re­silient through many dif­fer­ent meth­ods, such as stress man­age­ment, med­i­ta­tion, spir­i­tu­al­ity and oth­ers. Even get­ting ad­e­quate sleep makes us more re­silient.”

The Sub­stance Abuse and Men­tal Health Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tion in­cludes eight di­men­sions of well­ness: emo­tional, en­vi­ron­men­tal, fi­nan­cial, in­tel­lec­tual, oc­cu­pa­tional, phys­i­cal, so­cial and spir­i­tual.

Los An­ge­les and gyms are a match made in heaven, with choices from Soul­cy­cle to Rise­n­a­tion and Equinox Hol­ly­wood beck­on­ing fit­ness buffs.
