Life transitions can include but are certainly not limited to adapting to and from college, shifting to working from home, adjusting to a new illness, becoming a caregiver, losing a loved one or going through a divorce/estrangement from family members.
Many of us can recognize the various life transitions that might have resulted from the recent pandemic. And we may still be making adjustments accordingly.
An array of feelings might accompany these transitions. Sometimes anxiety and depression can occur during these times that can impact our functioning.
Life transitions can shake our central nervous system and we are left trying to determine how we are going to pick up the pieces and move forward. We wonder if we will ever feel ourselves again.
We can, however, restore our sense of balance and make healthy decisions during the process of change.
