Life Skills Resources
Life skills are skills that are needed to help us manage the variety of challenges we are faced with each day. As we get older and live through a wide range of experiences, we develop life skills in many areas. Sometimes we do not even realise we are learning and developing because it happens so gradually. It is crucial that we learn to master and develop an assortment of skills because they can help us manage many areas of our lives, from our working relationships to our personal lives.
It is evident that managing relationships is a very important life skill. The relationships we form with other people are vital to our emotional wellbeing. The more closely we connect with the key people in our lives, the more contented we will feel and the more personal satisfaction we will have. Relationships are also central from a business standpoint. Successful businesses are built on good relationships.
Some other important life skills are related to problem solving and decision making when dealing with finance. Financial skills are particularly useful and knowing how to handle personal finances is a key life skill. Financial literacy equips us with the skills to manage our money more effectively and it can be the difference between surviving and thriving from a financial viewpoint.
As we develop life skills, we become more adept at recognising and managing unhelpful thoughts, and we learn new ways of thinking which will lead to a healthier and more confident life.
