What is your definition of a tough person? Is it someone who takes a cold shower every morning, someone who stands up and gives a speech, someone who does a skydive? Do you think of mental toughness, physical toughness, emotional toughness, or all of the above? Whatever your definition of toughness - our topic for this week - Bev and Marina chat about the term within an array of different contexts. Would you be flattered to be described as tough, or would you take it as an insult? And in terms of your kids, would you rather they were tough or sensitive? Of course, the two are not mutually exclusive and so perhaps in an ideal world we would all be a combination of both. Toughness can manifest in many ways, from having a brutally honest conversation with a friend, to going for a run in the cold and rain, to stepping anywhere outside of our usual zone of comfort. Perhaps in its truest form, being tough simply means that we keep getting back up every time we fall, both literally and metaphorically. When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, it may be that we could all benefit from toughening up so that when life throws us those inevitable curve balls, we're better equipped to deal with them.
