Embracing Change

by | Sep 13, 2017

Change is a constant in life, whether it be in one’s personal or professional life. Whether positive or negative, change affects us all and how we function and operate in our professional realms. Much like most things in life, change can be hard to predict, and when change abruptly enters your life, it can leave you feeling overwhelmed.
In her article “6 Ways to Embrace Change at Work and at Home”, Jane Burnett outlines some of her best practices in managing change. Here are some of our favorite points:
  • Put your health first: Mental, emotional, and physical health is paramount in managing change. Make sure you get enough rest, nutrition, and exercise in order to adjust to change. Take time to do things you enjoy as well!
  • Focus on what you can control: There’s no use in worrying over changes you can do nothing about. When abrupt change happens, focus on what you’re able to influence and not what is out of your control. You’ll feel empowered by changing what you can, and more relaxed by letting go of what you cannot.
  • Talk to someone you care about: It’s no secret that talking to your loved ones is an effective way to adapt. The people closest to us can offer a helping hand, sound advice, or simply just a presence to hear you out.
