Embracing change to become your best self
Updated: Feb 14
Our brain likes how things are, and so will avoid any form of change. Even when creating the change ourselves, our brains will still crave the status quo. This desire to remain in our comfort zone can create a level of denial or resistance to any form of change, and this will only prolong the adjustment period.
Here are a couple of tips to assist you as you navigate change in your life:
* First, it’s essential to acknowledge and accept the change. Once accepted, you can focus on the positive aspects of the situation. Look for opportunities for growth and development.
* Next, it’s crucial to maintain a sense of control over your life. Set achievable goals for yourself and work towards them. This will help you to feel more in control and less overwhelmed.
* Taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally is also essential. Make sure to eat well, exercise, and get enough sleep. Try to find activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Surround yourself with supportive people and talk to them about your feelings.
Finally, don’t be afraid to seek professional help if you need it. A therapist, counselor, or coach can provide valuable guidance and support.
