Transitions are Jarring and Your Feelings Count

Transitions Bridge2

Transitions, whether planned or not, are disorienting.

Transitions create upheavals in your life.

No matter what, they turn things topsy-turvy for awhile. And living in the midst of that can be tough.

So the first key skill, when it comes to navigating transitions, is recognizing when you’re going through one.

Then, at the very least, you know why things feel a little ‘off.’  So, your next steps are to delve deeper into what’s happening and how you’re responding to it.

Another skill, when you’re moving through transitions…

A second skill involves seeing that every transition includes losses and gains.  Whether the transition is one that you welcome or one that you do not, it’s important to know that there are pluses and minuses about every choice and every change.

So, ask yourself what you are gaining and what you are letting go of? The clearer you get about these things, the better you’ll be able to manage your feelings.

Feelings matter…

Recognizing the emotional components of a transition enables you to be less reactive as you make your way through its peaks and valleys.  When you recognize and honor the feelings associated with your transition, you are less distracted and able to be much more focused.

In very concrete, practical ways, this helps you to think more clearly, and (ultimately) find more time while moving through your changes.
