Your life is constantly changing and evolving; sometimes for better, sometimes for worse.
For example... your career has changed and you are moving to a new city; your kids grow up and you experience the empty nest; or you and your spouse have just called it quits.
Are you one of the many people who get uncomfortable with stress and anxiety? Don't you think it would be easier to just learn how to say YES to change?
Change you initiate yourself is different that the change that happens to you. No matter what the change is, accepting it will be the best thing for your health.
What are some ways to deal with change?
In order to deal with the constant changes in your life, you need a strong context to adapt to those changes.
Change strips you from everything that you are used to knowing. The "not knowing" of what is going to happen, or where you're going to end up can create anxiety and tension. Even though it is extremely scary, staying positive makes a huge difference.
Resilience is also very important when it comes to change. How quickly you adapt is extremely crucial to your health and happiness.
