GRATITUDE

Gratitude is always the first step. Expressing gratitude can help combat negative emotions like sadness, regret, or anger. The more gratitude we feel, the more likely we are to experience positive feelings of happiness and joy as well as increased energy and optimism.

Protect your peace daily by leaving yourself open to attracting amazing friends and love, but knowing how to define your boundaries to frame these relationships.

LET GO OF WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK

It’s time to let go of what's holding you back. It's time to stop living in a constant state of worry and instead focus on the good things that make you happy. Remember, we all face challenges at one point or another, but some people are able to come out stronger than before. You can be and are now one of them.

SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE

1. Identify what is causing you stress. 2. Take steps to change the situation or take a break from it by doing things that are mentally and physically relaxing, such as reading a book, going for a walk, or playing with your dog.

ME TIME IS NON-NEGOTIABLE

One of the very best ways to cope with forced change is to take care of yourself. Sounds so simple, but so many of us just don't bother to look after ourselves. Take care of your physical needs by eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercising.

Make sure you take care of your mental needs by having a routine that includes hobbies and relaxation techniques. Finally, make sure you take care of your emotional needs by talking to trusted friends and family members about what is going on in your life.

GET ORGANIZED

-Start by looking at your schedule for the week and identify what you would like to do less of, or spend less time on.

-Schedule it as tightly as possible so that it’s not hanging over your head.

-If you have trouble getting rid of a task, ask yourself why you are putting it off. What is the worst that could happen if you stop doing this?

SAY NO

Learning how to say no can be difficult, especially when it feels like you're being asked to do something that doesn't align with your values. Saying no is a skill that will allow you to set boundaries in your life and make decisions that are best for you. It's important to recognize the difference between saying no because you don't want to do something and saying no because it violates your personal values.

SET BOUNDARIES

It's important to know what you want and stick to it. If you’re a people pleaser who is over being stepped on, you can be someone is trying to change your boundaries - stand your ground!

You will feel better about yourself if you don't let others take advantage of you or guilt-trip you. Say no and be confident in your decision! Don't feel like you have to live up to other people's expectations if they're not what makes you happy.

FIND YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for yourself is to reach out for help. It's important to know that you're not alone and that there are people out there who want to support you.

Try talking with someone close to you or reaching out to a professional such as a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist. You might also find it helpful to join an online support group or take part in some type of religious activity.

So there you have it - tips and strategies to help you negotiate through unexpected changes. I’d love to know what you think about them and how effective they were if and when you used any of them.

In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend
