Life is full of transition and change. As a matter of fact, the one thing we can all be sure of is that nothing stays the same. Literally everything and everyone is in a constant state of flux.
Adjusting to change can be difficult and even positive life transitions can cause anxiety and stress. Over the course of a lifetime, a person can expect to experience a significant amount of change. Some of these changes, such as marriages, births, and new jobs, are generally positive, although they may be accompanied by their own unique stressors. Other major life transitions, such as moving, retirement, or entering the “empty nest” phase of life may cause a significant amount of anxiety. These changes and transitions can range from joyful and exciting to excruciatingly painful. Chances are pretty good that you are going through some sort of transition yourself right now, and how you move through that change is what matters most. Do any of these sound familiar:
- You are just finishing school and ready to enter the work force; or you are leaving a career or job to go back to school
- You are struggling with an injury or illness
- You are entering a new personal or business relationship; or trying to transition out of an existing one with integrity
- You are preparing to move or relocate; or moving back home with an elderly parent
- Your child is moving back home
- Experiencing “the empty nest” and reconnecting with your Self and partner
- You are experiencing an illness or the death of a loved one
- You are experiencing the birth of a child and becoming a new parent
- You’ve lost or gained a lot of weight
- You’ve lost or gained a lot of money
- You are buying your first home; or selling a home and downsizing
- Transitioning into mid-life or menopause
- Transitioning into adulthood and juggling job, spouse, children
These are just a few of the changes that you might be struggling with. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to just let go of the struggle? To learn how to ride the wave and flow with life’s constant change? Live a life that is less stressful and more joyful? Be a better partner, parent, employee, entrepreneur and friend. Learn to embrace life and its impermanence. Stop looking for meaning and start living with purpose. It’s easier than you might think.
Therapy for Change
Acceptance of what you are already experiencing. Learning to drop the rope in your tug of war with your anxiety, stress and worry monsters, freeing yourself up for the things in your life that you really care about.
Choosing a direction for your life in a mindful manner. This involves identifying what you value most in life and what you want to stand for, and then make conscious choices which are in line with your values.
Taking a Stand
Take a stand based on your values. You’re already making a choice, so you can enhance your sense of vitality and well- being by acting on that choice, guided by your values. Ask yourself: ‘What do I want to stand for in the next twenty-four hours?’ ‘What values do I want to live by in this area of life?’
Take Time to Reflect
Put aside time on a regular basis to mindfully reflect on the situation. Mindful reflection is the opposite of rumination. The aim is to just sit quietly with your pen and paper and do nothing but write down and reflect on the pros and cons of each choice. Usually not more than 10 or 15 minutes.
Develop self-compassion. Talk to yourself gently and kindly, and unhook yourself from unhelpful, self-judgmental mind chatter. Incorporate a daily ritual of Self-care that nourishes your mind, body and spirit.
Trusting In the Universe
Feelings of anxiety will almost certainly arise—again and again and again—no matter which option you choose. So practice “expansion” when they do so. Breathe into those feelings; open up and make room for them; acknowledge to yourself, “Here’s anxiety”; and remind yourself, “This feeling is normal. It’s what everybody feels in a challenging situation with an uncertain outcome.”
