In the midst of transition, be gentle with yourself. Our brains do not like unpredictability and in times of change, that is the only thing we can actually count on.

Change means “danger, danger!” to our primal selves. Anchor into things that remain steady and hold onto what you can.

Notice the parts of your body that tense up in times of change and remind yourself that you are safe and that change can be scary but you can handle it. Breathe into those tense areas and breathe out the fear of change.
