Fear Of Change
I am writing about Change today because change is one of those things I am struggling with, and it is never easy for me. You see I don’t like change in my life. The fear of making a life change, fear of the unknown, fear of moving ahead, fear of changing your routine or fear of losing weight.
Change can be scary.
I am moving to a new house in one month and to be honest I am scared of this change, but it does not have to be scary, you see I choose to be mindful, move out of my comfort zone and be in the now. I also know that I need this change in my life.
But this seems so easy to do. You know that saying: Change is as good as a holiday.
Because we love the familiar, we love to dwell in the familiar.
Here are some tools that can help you to embrace change in your life:
Embrace the change
Embrace the change that are coming your way. See this change as a new chapter in your life. Accept it, feel it and take it all in.
Appreciate what you have in your life
Start with a gratitude journal and write down everyday what you are grateful for in your life. Go back often and read it.
Feel more comfortable with yourself
Love yourself more, don’t worry about what other people think, embrace yourself for who you are right now. Go for walks in nature and connect. Eat healthy meals every day and drink lots of water. Try to meditate once a day. Do some EFT Tapping and really sit with what emotion you are feeling.
Reconnect with people
Connect with loved ones, reach out to friends and family that you haven’t seen for a long time. Tell them about the change in your life. Ask them to support you.
Take baby steps
Take baby steps, take one day at a time, don’t worry about what happened yesterday, or what will happen tomorrow, be in the now. Take each change as it comes.
Remember change is no one’s friend, and for some people it is hard to make a change.
Try to stop complaining about changes that are happening and start laughing more.
