How to Have a Healthy Relationship with Change

A change of scenery, a change of pace, or a change in your responsibilities can be a welcome development; or, it can trigger waves of stress and concern! 

Change is an unavoidable aspect of life. And unwelcomed change can make you miserable. Thankfully, you are not powerless in the face of change! Your bravery, creativity, and resilience will see you through. With time and practice, you can learn how to: 

Anticipate and Prepare for Change: Set up financial and logistical safety nets. Appropriate insurance coverage and an emergency fund can help you face worst-case-scenarios without missing a beat on your plans for the future. You want your back-up plan to address potential worst-case scenarios, but you also don’t need to live in fear that unwelcomed change is around every corner, either! 

Accept Change: Not every plan will pan out the way you want. Sometimes an unexpected change may require you to adjust your strategy or timeline. Work toward your goals, but also live in the present moment! Remind yourself that you have overcome difficult change before, and that with each new experience, you become smarter, stronger, and more prepared to face the next stage in your story. 

Make the Changes You Want: Be proactive instead of reactive. But, don’t expect to see changes overnight, either! Break your larger goals into tinier, more doable steps. Change often takes patience; even a small amount of progress deserves your recognition. Unsure how to make a change for the better in your life? A trusted mentor can be a useful source of personalized, insightful advice.
