Stress Relief During Times of Change

dreamstime_xxl_19083524We all experience life changes from time to time. Whether it’s moving, getting married, divorced, or having kids, life is far from static. Change in itself is stressful. So how do we cope during times of change?

First, keep it simple. Take things one step at a time. Need to do laundry and make dinner and feed the dog and watch the baby? Pick one thing to keep yourself from getting completely frazzled. What can you delegate to others? Can you get some help around the house? Maybe you can ask your partner or family member to help by feeding the dog today. Ask yourself, how can I get just one thing off my plate right now? The more we focus, the simpler things become, and the less stressed we feel.
