How To Cope With Stress Concerning Change
When coping with stress, one of the biggest difficulties we face with the decision making process is always going to be centered around change. No matter where we are or what we do, change is going to be an inevitable fact about life. Yet and still, I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a great aversion towards change.
At times, even something as simple as having to change your regular route because of construction can be enough to challenge your sense of peace and well being, especially if you’re pressed for time. Not to mention changes in appointment schedules which, with one swoop, can set into motion a type of domino effect for all consecutive appointments. Change, even the slightest, can strike suspense, mystery, confusion, doubt and fear.
We, as humans, are habitual creatures. We like the fact that we can perform certain tasks like making breakfast in the morning or driving to work, without having to think about them. Besides, who really wants to rethink simple mundane, monotonous tasks, much less the big tasks that some changes bring?
