    Transition Well: Well-Being and Self-Care

    In the world we reside in today, change is constant and adjusting to a new normal is challenging. Often, one tends to resist or fight against change. This only prolongs the inevitable of embracing a new normal while releasing ideas of “things going back to normal.” In the meantime, a person’s well-being is compromised or neglected on many levels (i.e. emotional, physical, mental, intellectual, occupational, spiritual etc.). Subsequently, one fails to practice self-care and live in the moment while experiencing a healthy well-being, joy and peace. How would life look for you if you transition well? Let’s explore how transition from your unknown zone to your known zone and embrace a new normal as you:

    • Understand the difference between change and transition

    • Prepare to embrace your new normal

    • Explore various pillars of well-being

    • Create a well-being and self-care plan
