Jane Barton: Change and Uncertainty – That’s Life

Change has always been part of the lived experience. However, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, we are experiencing change fatigue – one change after another. The proverbial domino effect. Nothing seems normal! Change disrupts our daily routines, life expectations, and our sense of certainty. Change reminds us that we are not in control! Challenging to say the very least, but this is the current reality. So instead of resisting change, how can we engage it? First, understand the process of change, loss, transition, grief, and mourning. Second, decide to move through the process and embrace a new way of being. And finally, leverage the 3R’s – Resilience, Response, and Ritual – to move through the transitional moments in life.
