Psychology Today describes resilience as: “that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes.”

Whether it is bouncing back from trauma, tragedies, health problems, or stress, it takes a special kind of person to remain positive and optimistic when your journey encounters endless hardship and pain.

Today’s guest, Josephine, is one of those special people with the gift of mental fortitude.

In this episode, Josephine Atluri, a meditation expert and host of the Responding to Life podcast, opens up about her difficult journey of becoming a mom to five using IVF, surrogacy, and international adoption. She shares how her challenging circumstances propelled her forward and ultimately led her to a place of peace.

Josephine also shares some stress-reduction techniques you can use to keep a calmer and happier home and ways to boost your self-esteem.
