Mental Health Tips—Transitions/Changes

Transitioning into new roles can be difficult. Taking new classes, getting a job, graduating, moving, etc. Any change comes with comfortability and that is ok. Don’t lose sight of your goals when transitions/changes occur in your life.  Here are 5 ways that might help you in a time of transition. 

•    Prepare yourself. If you know a change is about to happen, make a list of things that you know you need in order to be successful in this transition. Create a checklist of things you need to do before the transition occurs. The more prepared you can be, the less stress you will experience. 
•    Try to maintain a routine. Finding a consistent morning or nighttime routine can help develop a sense of normalcy when transitions are happening. 
•    Continue engaging in healthy behaviors: eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, and exercise. Meeting your physical needs is extremely important.
•    Connect with the people around you. Reach out to your friends and family often, but if you are in a new environment, try to connect with them too. 
•    Be kind to yourself. Remember…change is uncomfortable. Check on your internal monolog and say, “I got this,” “I am capable of learning,” “I trust myself.”
