We have heard over and over that we are living through an ‘unprecedented time’, an unprecedented amount of times. The Covid-19 environment has left us feeling isolated, anxious about the future and for some of us, jobless and separated from our families.
What does it mean to be living through an ‘unprecedented’ time’?
It means the world around us and the world within us has radically changed. These changes will also continue to occur at a rapid rate and until resolved we will have to continue to adjust, often without warning and without the skills needed to navigate these new life challenges.
We all experience change throughout our lives. Change is a constant, we know that. But many of us can find change difficult even at the best of times without the additional demands the current environment provides with its increased challenges. For many of us change can bring fear to the surface and anxieties of the unknown. It can also exhaust us and anger us. We can be left feeling hopeless and alone.
It is also important to remember that change can also inspire and excite us. The thought may have crossed your mind during the lockdown to get fit, to de-stress, to change your ‘bad’ habits’ or to make a career change. But here we are looking forward to the end of lockdown, and it’s important to ask yourself the question - how are you doing with your change?
Sometimes knowing where to start, how to start, is the greatest challenge we face. So guess what? Often we simply don’t start. Instead of starting today, we decide to start another day…’one day’. And that ‘one day’ slowly turns into ‘some day’ and you find yourself doing the same thing and getting the same results over and over again. We are here to help.
A Wellbeing Coach can help you to turn your ‘one day’ into today and to navigate change with confidence, clarity and calm.
2020 has undoubtedly been a difficult year. But life continues. Your dreams are still your dreams, worthy of seeing the light of day. Our team of coaches at Bayleaf Wellness are here to help.
