Many people spend a great deal of time and energy trying to avoid change, but you cannot run away from change, it will catch up with you. Look what happened at the beginning of the panic, that was change that none of us could run away from this kind of change. Some kinds of changes are controllable, and some are not. If you can learn to cope with change, you’ll lower your risk for anxiety and depression, and you will just feel better. At the end of the day no person or situation will stay the same forever. At the minimum, we all change, we all grow older, and we all are forced to open our eyes to new ways of life. It does not matter if it is in your personal life or your professional life you will face change. In this episode we talk about how to better cope with change and how to become more resilient.
