Life Transitions and Wellness
Life transitions and staying well can be difficult and you may feel overwhelmed and anxious, making your entire life feel upside down and wondering how to survive. Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of life altering transitions in which our wellness may be jeopardized. Some transitions are joyous, adding happiness and fulfillment. There are other transitions however, that are rooted in separation and loss. Regardless of the nature of the transition, any significant change in our lives can evoke a plethora of emotions. In treatment, individuals acquire the ability to understand and appreciate the impact that each transition ultimately has on their lives; working to grieve the loss of what was and embrace what is. During transitions, we are forced to change and deal with intense emotions and may need a few good coping skills.
