We’ve all seen some major changes in our world in the last week or so, and things are certainly going to change. Change in life can be exciting, scary, uncomfortable and even stressful, all at the same time. Here are some easy ways to make dealing with those changes that little bit easier…
1. Understand and recognise
Change is scary because you’re afraid of the unknown. Try to think of a worst case scenario. Is it as bad as you predicted? Chances are, it won’t be. Do your research and understand the change from the inside-out. This will help you to get your head around things. Sometimes they’re not as bad as they appear.Control
If a big change happens in life, establish whether there is anything you can do to control it. Can you have an input in this change at all? Understanding your role can make things easier to cope with.
3. Take actions
If the unwanted change is within your control, use a problem-solving approach and take decisive action to limit its effect on you. Always seek help from others if needed.
4. Be optimistic
Try looking at things from a positive perspective, as this will help you feel better about the change overall. For example, you may have changed jobs and will be moving away from colleagues you know and like, but on the other hand, you may be getting better opportunities, more money and the fabulous chance to meet many more exciting people.
If the unwanted change is beyond your control, accept it and move forward. Adapt and be the best you can under your new circumstances. This will also help you to stay calm and focused. View the change as an opportunity to learn and grow, rather than a setback.
6 Manage your stress levels
Do whatever works for you – whether that’s mindfulness, meditation, crystal healing or yoga. Clear your head, and stay focused.
7. Ask for help
Don’t be afraid to seek support in other people. If you feel overwhelmed or overemotional, talk to friends and family, even your angels – but don’t suffer in silence. They will help you come to terms with things and see a positive outcome.
