Coping with changes - Deepstash

Coping with changes

Facing and eventually coping successfully with changes can make people go through all kind of emotions that finally lead to them changing their mind, in order to better adjust to the new situations.

Thing that is perfectly normal, as it is easier to live at peace with your current life than oppose it endlessly and know only frustration.

Changing our minds

While most of us generally agree on the fact that individuals do not really change their mind, or at least not that easily, recent research has shown that this is quite inaccurate.

People seem to be willing to change their mind in order to adjust to a situation they did not want at all in the first place: that is to say, they try to find something good in what seemed extremely dark, so they can stand what they are going through at certain moments in their life.

The limits of time management

Many people see time management as a priority. That means allocating specific times to particular tasks to maximise productivity. But there's a difference between organising time to enhance productivity and viewing it as a goal in itself to define a life well spent.

Experts suggest some tasks don't fit into the time management grid. When you are spending time with family or a leisure activity, productivity is not a goal. Hyper-organisation can also have emotional consequences, particularly when it doesn't go according to plan.

Difficult to convince

It can feel impossible to persuade someone with strong views. This is in part because we look for information to confirm what we already know and avoid or dismiss facts that are opposed to our core beliefs.

However, it is not impossible to sway someone.
