Between the pandemic, job loss, home schooling, social issues, and more, Americans are being tested like never before.

Our resilience - the ability to bounce back and overcome challenges - is at an all time low, but you can still build your own inner strength. Children are naturally resilient, but that tends to decline between the ages of 18 and 23, then gradually grow again.

To help your own resilience, Cigna has introduced a new initiative to help people GROW:

  • G: Ground yourself in the situation
  • R: Recognize what you can control
  • O: Organize the resources you need
  • W: Work with your community for support
