Hey Soul Friend,
They say the only constant thing in life is change.
If that’s true, then why do so many of resist, myself included?
Any change, big or small, used to send me into a tizzy! I’d spiral into overwhelm and confusion at the drop of a hat…er…change.
It took me a while to realize that by resisting it, I was actually responsible for creating all the chaos.
Usually, the changes I was faced with were minor. It was my perspective and approach to it that made me think I would never figure it out.
I overcame this using one simple trick: Deep breathing.
Anytime I came across a change, instead of freaking out I forced myself to remain calm and breath!
When I did this, I was able to keep a clear a head and focus on what was needed.
Making this small change erased most of the overwhelm. I was able to finish new tasks quicker, and I was generally more happy and upbeat. Change didn’t instantly signal challenge to me anymore.
Instead, change became opportunities to learn and grow my skills.
I’m curious, how do you handle change? Do you welcome it with open arms? Or will you be implementing my deep breathing trick? Comment below and let me know!
