Change Has Arrived, yet again by Jillian Faulks-Majuta
With so many new experiences brought to us by our COVID days, one may think we’ve gotten better at dealing with change. How mindful have you been during this process? Have you had the opportunity to note how you respond to change? Was your adaptation to change more manageable when you had more rest or had time to prep for the adjustment? The world is slowly opening up and our roles at work, at home and in our communities are still shifting. Now is a great time to be more mindful of your process when you are facing change. Mindfulness, according to mindful.org, is “the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” So here’s a little suggestion. Over the next couple of weeks be mindful of your responses to any change that comes your way. Be fully present, take note of what you’re feeling and how you’re processing. Then take some time to note what you’d like to keep from the process and what you would like to change in your process. Be an active participant in your change process and remain open to what continues to flow.
