Transition or change happens in every person’s life and leaves us in a state of vulnerability . We get anxious and panicky because we need to step out of our comfort zones and make undue adjustments with not only our surroundings but also with our inner selves. At times it gets very difficult to manage change and may even result in extreme despair and agony.When routines get disrupted, our brains are forced to adjust to the new ways of living. It might even shake off one’s identity.This also puts stress on our systems and it comes up in various forms such as fear, worry, lack of self worth, lack of self confidence, decreased motivation and tension. Many a people try to even avoid change but it inevitably catches on them later. Resistance to change can often lead to more anxiety, worry and overwhelm.
Some other effects of a transition may be:
- Lack of motivation
- Lack of clarity about future
- Inability to make right choice
- Feelings of hopelessness and despair
- Negative thinking
- Negative behaviors
- Dis-empowering beliefs
Therefore, considering the ill effects of change and transitions, it is wise to say that instead of feeling confused and unfocused it is much better to take this as the most opportune time to explore , brainstorm and consider the make over before new patterns start solidifying.This is the best time to look within yourself, define new ways of living ,set new targets, increase your motivation and aspire to live a better life .
Role of a coach
