What's up, Lifebabblers?
Coping with challenges can be tough.
Our resilience is what helps us
adapt, cope and recover,
and today we're talking about just that - resilience.
Resilience is coping with whatever life throws at you.
It's about dealing positively with situations.
You can be resilient in loads of situations,
like facing future challenges.
-Coping with tests and exams.
-Or a new school.
Being able to talk about your feelings is also being resilient.
Challenges can be exciting,
and they're not always about dealing with bad situations.
I went to a go-karting party,
and I was very nervous.
I didn't like going down the dark tunnels.
I decided to chat to the workers and then I finally gave it a go.
I ended up coming first,
and I got a medal
and I got to stand on this really cool podium.
You know what?
We don't always get everything right,
and we all do mess up.
Me, you, celebs and even Olympians -
like sporting hero Tom Daley at the Rio Olympics.
What do you mean, we can't afford the Olympic footage?
Time for a Lifebabble reconstruction.
It all rests on this final dive.
He's at the top.
Some of the crowd are on their feet.
He's gone for it.
Ooh, that's going to hurt in the morning!
And, after all that, here's what Tom messaged.
Whatever life throws at you,
don't give up when things don't go to plan.
Obstacles, challenges and difficulties are a part of life.
can help us to manage stress, anxiety
Building strength to deal with things can help our confidence
and our self-esteem,
and asking for help when you need it
not only shows courage and strength,
it means you're resilient too.
Maths tests used to worry me.
I would chew on the cuffs of my jumper.
I would sit there terrified,
while all the other kids would be answering questions really quick.
I wasn't going to give up, and I got extra help.
I recently got a maths mark.
I was really pleased with it.
I've had some really hard things happen to me in my life,
like when my parents went through a really tough time in their marriage
and when I couldn't afford to go to university.
But if it wasn't for those things,
I wouldn't be as resilient as I am now.
Now you can throw anything at me and I won't give up,
and I'll get back up with a smile on my face.
Some people are resilient by nature, but not everybody is like that.
Some people find it tougher.
The good news is you can build resilience
to help deal with challenges.
Remind yourself that you deserve to be happy and healthy.
When times are hard, decide how YOU want to respond to the situation.
And remember, you have overcome challenging times before
and you will do again.
That's because you are resilient.
# You should be proud you tried so hard today
# Fought away all of those clouds of grey
# But you don't have to be brave all the time
# Because talking to someone
# About how you feel is fine
# And tomorrow is a brand-new day
# To start again
# Try not to stress
# Just do your best, and stand up
# And keep your chin up. #
That's all for this Lifebabble.
Remember, there's loads more on the CBBC website.

carry on being awesome, and keep babbling.
