Sometimes change can be overwhelming. Many of us suffer from change fatigue; too many changes in rapid succession.
When these things happen, it is difficult to appreciate, or even to notice, the benefits of change, because we’re just plain tired of it.
When it all becomes a blur because our merry-go-round of change is no longer so merry, we want off. Now.
Savor the spaces.
If this is you, then a great quick and easy technique is notice, and especially to savor the spaces in between. Those gaps that present themselves in tiny little moments in time, like the area between frames in a film.
These can be transformed into moments of solitude, stillness, and calm between the storms:
Make time to appreciate the fast AND the slow.
The best remedy to constant movement is to be covetous of those moments of space in time. Of those small, yet refreshing gifts when we can choose to step off our busy, fluid merry go round life of change, and enjoy a small moment of peace as a personal gift to ourselves.
In doing this, we also awaken our ability to appreciate the fast along with the slow. We regain our balance allowing us to remain more present within our fast-paced, constantly changing life.
And when we once again become overwhelmed or fatigued, we will more easily notice that this is a sign to step back into the gaps and make our own space to just be.
