Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut? Does it seem like you’re repeating the same cycles in your life over and over again, but they aren’t making you any happier? If so, you’re feeling what many other people are experiencing, too. This winter with its surges, cold weather, and shorter days has been challenging for many. But, with spring around the corner, so too is an opportunity to grow, to change, to live the life that you want. Los Angeles psychologist Dr. Yvonne Thomas can help in multiple ways.
A Time of Growth, A Time Of Exploration
Spring is the time of year that we associate with rebirth and renewal. The flowers bloom, mother nature is regenerating, and the world can feel new. You can do the same in your life, too. If there’s something you’ve been putting off, or something that you’ve wanted to do, but simply haven’t, now is a great time to try such a thing. For so many reasons, this is a good time of the year to grow as a person, too.
Baby Steps Can Lead To Big Results
The above having been said, it can be challenging when trying something new, emotionally and mentally. To make it easier, try taking smaller steps initially, also known as “baby steps.” “Getting out of your comfort zone” is a good thing. However, going too far out of it and/or all at once can actually make you less likely to do something. So, take smaller steps, at least at first, to test things out, to see if different opportunities appeal to you or not. You may try something new only to find that it wasn’t right for you in the first place, which is also a great kind of growth.
Someone By Your Side
When you try something new and/or when you attempt to take advantage of an opportunity, it can help quite a bit to have someone you trust with you. It can be that much easier to try something new when you have a friend, family member, or your significant other as an emotional support system. With someone by your side literally or figuratively, you may feel braver and calmer to try new activities or be proactive with an opportunity rather than trying these kind of things alone.
