How to Make Adjustments in the Fall Season
The season of making adjustments is upon us. Many of us are still adjusting to the year that is filled with new challenges, whatever that may look like for each of us. Perhaps you're working from home, homeschooling your children, or managing a household by yourself for the first time.
Whatever the case may be, there are bound to be some challenges. Here are a few tips on how to make adjustments in the new season.
1. Don't be Afraid to Ask for Help
This is a tough one for many of us, especially if we're used to being independent and self-sufficient. But sometimes, we need to reach out and ask for help, whether it's from our family and friends or from professionals. If you're struggling to balance work and home life, see if your employer offers any flexibility in terms of hours or working from home.
If you're feeling overwhelmed with homeschooling your children, there are plenty of online resources and support groups available. And if you're struggling to manage your finances, consider talking to a financial advisor. The bottom line is that we can't do everything on our own, so don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
2. Set Realistic Expectations
This one is especially important if you're working from home for the first time. It can be easy to get caught up in the idea that you should be productive 24/7 now that you have no commute and no office distractions.
But that's just not realistic (or healthy). So set realistic expectations for yourself and your workday. Allow yourself some time in the morning to ease into your day, take breaks throughout the day, and give yourself some grace if you don't get everything done that you wanted to.
3. Prioritize Your Mental Health
This is a difficult time for all of us, and it's important to prioritize our mental health. Make sure to schedule some time each day for things that make you happy and help you relax. This could be reading, going for a walk, listening to music, or anything else that brings you joy.
It's also important to stay connected with others—schedule regular video chats or phone calls with family and friends, join an online support group, or see a therapist if needed. Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health, so don't forget to prioritize it this season.
The season of making adjustments can be difficult, but it's also an opportunity for growth. Embrace the challenge and use these tips to help you make adjustments in the new season!
