Dealing with a change can be stressful. The larger the change, the more uncomfortable you’ll feel. Although these feelings are completely normal, there are several ways you can help yourself become more comfortable with change.
- Let Go Of Past Convictions– If you face a big change, you’re going to have to let go of the way things were before. Whether this is how you used to do things or the way you used to think about something. Either way, you will be unable to embrace and be comfortable with your current change if you are still worried about something which happened in the past. It’s time to let go.
- Decide Where You Want To Go– Studies have shown that there is power behind visualization and positive convictions. And this most certainly applies in times of change. When you decide where you want to go and why you want to do something, you’ll be more motivated to take the action steps needed to get you toward your desire. Write down down these reasons, add to the list, and refer to it often
- Do Something To Release Your Stress–In times of stress, it’s important to know yourself and how you can best relieve your stress. If you are facing an especially uncomfortable part of a change, it can help to do something to lessen the feeling of discomfort. For example, if you like to run and have just moved to a new city, consider going out for a run in your new location to increase your comfort levels.
- Learn To Adapt–The change will seem much less drastic when you mentally prepare yourself for it. You can help increase your adaptability by thinking about backup plans and making adjustments as needed if changes are needed. Just knowing you have a backup plan will feel like having a safety net. This will help you feel more confident and comfortable when changes inevitably come.
