Every year the season of fall events throw upon us a curve ball for which we must adjust. It doesn’t just happen, but how we react can change our individual lives.
For many families it means the return to nightly homework, extra school activities, and church function responsibility, job changes and holiday happenings. Even in the best of circumstances, change can be stressful and it often can be scary.
Our mindset is often challenged so by learning to manage the mindset we often make the most of our circumstances, by focusing on a positive outcome.
Fall season includes the October 1st Anniversary of last year’s mass shooting here in Las Vegas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and more.
Here are three suggestions to help us manage a better mindset.
So when the fall changes happen in your home, try not to become overly reactive, but welcome them with normal feelings. Moreover, be understanding for some of your family or friends who may need extra help. There might be periods of depression or flashbacks to other memories. Talking about experiences can be healing. Listen and be supportive in Support groups, church or community involvement.
Change can be a time for growing and enrichment.
