Secrets to Making Change Easier



When you tap into this side of yourself, you’re connecting with an army of invisible forces that are just waiting to help you. You can tune into this resource every day by simply turning inward and noticing how things feel.

Start tapping into your spiritual side today by embracing quiet time: You can take a walk, sit in silence, pray, express your gratitude or meditate. The method doesn’t matter, just be sure to take a few minutes and explore yourself on the inside. Your spiritual side is always there; once you become aware of it, you’ll feel its stability, guidance and gentle suggestions.

8. Your Change Support Team: The People and Things That Can Help

Those who successfully work through change create an environment that supports their evolution by surrounding themselves with supportive people. Saying three simple words—“I need help”—will produce an incredible amount of assistance. You may fear that saying those words makes you weak, but research proves that people find it easier to get through change when they’re in a positive group environment.

When going through change, it’s important, as well, to surround yourself with things that are symbols of comfort, positive memories and power. If you lose your way during the transition, these items are there to get you back on course. Any object that’s uplifting can help you get through change: It can be a teddy bear, a trinket, a card, a candle, a photo of something or someone, an inspirational quote or a lucky stone. There are no rules for the things that give you strength.

9. Get Unstuck: Actions to Move You Through Any Change

As people who embrace change have realized, another secret to navigating transitions is to get moving. Physical motion prevents you from getting stuck and allows you to progress onward. When we go through change, emotional, physical and psychic energy is swirling around us—staying still prevents that energy from circulating. When you don’t know what to do, just start moving. You can do anything—go for a walk, do the dishes, hit the gym, water the plants or organize your closets.

Movement is key during change, and so is health—it’s essential to take care of yourself during transitions. Doing so will help you move through change in an easier and calmer way. Remember the concept of S.E.E.D.: Sleep, Eat, Exercise and Drink (water that is!). Be sure to get just enough sleep (though sleeping too much isn’t helpful), eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly and drink lots of water. The S.E.E.D. will help you get through change faster by giving you the strength and vitality to move forward without getting stuck.

Now’s the perfect time to begin looking at change differently—for the first 30 days and for the rest of your life. Change is something at which you can get better—it’s a skill you can learn and a path to loving your life even more! Have a wonderful, uplifting journey!

If you can do so and have the ability to spend the time with the animal, I strongly recommend going to your local pound or animal rescue and giving a pet a home. I did this after massive change, addiction and depression. I was on, medical leave from a position as a scientist to deal with a massive vicodin addiction. I was asked to go home during yet another withdrawal session mid FDA audit. It was clear to colleagues I was spiraling for months and no one wanted me talking to FDA.. I was paranoid, antisocial and erratic in my behavior. I was exposed as not just eccentric smart educated person..but a waste of brains, looks (did some modeling) and education. Didn't even wash or comb my hair anymore and I was officially deemed a suicide risk by my doctor.
Always an animal lover I made sure I could care for one properly first...even in this state neglecting an animal is not an option..EVER.. I brought this Maine coon home..then another. Being responsible for these gifts from God and the nonjudging companionship helped me heal in ways I can explain and all my therapy, science and medication helped but these animals were what made me feel "never alone".. I would consider a pet and if you already have one...realizing you have a gift during your change right in your midst.

Does anyone know where I can find deep technical information about smart cards?. I'm doing a report for the company I'm working for.

#5 is such an important step. Resistance has been a big enemy of my ability to acctpe changes readily, most of the time.

The biggest change I have ever made was emigrating from England to America and the first 3 months were very hard, I had extreme moments of elation and depression. I think friends and family are the best resource for making change easier. If you can work on your social skills then change can be easy! Just build that safety net of supporters and you can achieve your dreams :)

I just lost my husband in an industrial accident at his job. (On our wedding Anniversary). He was crushed to death. The best advice I've been given so faris, Write a letter to him., Turn the paper over and write a letter to YOU from your deceased friend,loved one,spouse. It'll brin
g ALOT of HEALING tears. you don't have to burn it. Actually It will probably help you to keep it so you can look back on it when your having a very sad day. God love all of you. Christyb62

Hi, Espresso

I know what you mean. We talk about this a lot. How can losing a loved one be a good change?

I think it's in the way you look at it. When someone has been in pain or suffering I try to view their passing as a blessing and reason why they had to be taken from us ... what lesson I am to learn or how can I continue their legacy and honor their memory.

When I'm at a wake or a funeral I'm often struck by someone holding an infant ... knowing they brought the baby because they had to (no one to take care of the baby while they paid their respects) but seeing it as an acknowledgment of the cycle of life.

My best friend died of breast cancer when she was only 30 -- she hadn't even begun to live -- and I still haven't figured that one out yet, only I hope somehow her loss taught us all a lesson and I know her memory never fades for me.

I love this site, but would appreciate some acknowledgement that not all change brings "great things around the corner," such as my friend who is in chemo for leukemia and will need a bone marrow transplant (no matching donors yet) or my other friend who died of ovarian cancer a few years ago.
Sometimes bad stuff just happens. If there is a better way to think about this, please let me know!
