Sunday Constant

Sunday Constant

Here we are at the beginning of a brand new school year – one with no mistakes in it yet. But mistakes will come and so will change. Change is a certainty in life, and one of life’s greatest stressors whether the change is good or bad.

How can you handle this constant in life effectively? Here are seven tools:

1.       Be aware of unavoidable change and accept rather than deny or avoid it.
2.       Face your feelings and avoid negative self-talk like “It isn’t fair”, “I must be a bad person”…etc.
3.       Adopt a grateful attitude. This helps you see the change as a positive and reminds you to not forget all the wonderful things you already have.
4.       Avoid negative thoughts. (See #2) Replace them as they occur with a positive thought.
5.       Relax. Consciously relax by slowing your breathing – or by simply remembering to breathe!
6.       Set new goals that excite and motivate you.
7.       Maintain relationships with supportive people in your life.

Other things that can help are: keeping a journal, and/or developing a new hobby or doing more with an existing one. Anything that keeps you positive will help you weather life’s changes.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #28:  
Change is a certainty in life.”
