Major Life Transitions – What They Are and How to Manage Them


Ref :


Life requires you to be able to shift from one situation, relationship, or career to another. These shifts, or transitions, can be quite disconcerting and even challenging at times. If you’re aware of upcoming transitions you’ll be experiencing, you’ll be in a better position to prepare for it.


Applying helpful strategies will then help you manage the shifts more effectively.


Common Life Transitions


Becoming familiar with common adult life transitions will help you be proactive when it comes to managing your own transitions. Consider these situations that are filled with changes:


Moving your residence. Leaving a home you’ve lived in for years can trigger many feelings of sadness, loss, and even grief.

Getting married. Deciding to permanently share your life and residence with another person is quite a shift in your lifestyle, causing a lot of change and perhaps turmoil at first, even though you’re happy with your decision to wed.

Having your first baby. Becoming responsible for another life is one of the most awesome, life-changing events you’ll ever experience.

Experiencing a divorce. The termination of a relationship that you thought would last all your life leads to an obvious period of change and turbulence.

Obtaining a new job. Leaving co-workers, supervisors, and surroundings you’ve grown accustomed to can bring great changes to your life.

Switching careers. Changing from one type of work to another is a monumental life-changing event for most people.

Losing a parent through death. Losing one of the people you’ve been closest to all your life will trigger many feelings. You might even look at your own existence much differently once a parent passes.

Coping with your best friend moving away. If you’ve been close to a person for many years and weathered other transitions with their help, it can be quite challenging to face the fact that they won’t be close by anymore.


How to Manage Your Life Transitions


As you can see, some of these transitions occur spontaneously and without much warning. Others are, for the most part, orchestrated by you.


Examine these ideas on how you can successfully manage your life transitions:


1. Plan ahead. When you’re thinking about doing something that will trigger a transition in your life, plan it at a time when you expect other areas of your life to be relatively calm. You have the ability to schedule some of your life transitions.


2. Space your transitions, if possible. For example, if you’ve just taken a new job in town, it may not be the time to move your residence. Give yourself a year to adjust to the new position before you start looking for a new house. It’s wise to allow some time to get used to one new situation before beginning another. The transition process takes time for adjustment.


3. Continue with regular routines. Throughout the time of transition, stick with as many of your routines as possible. Routines can bring structure and a certain comfort to your life whenever there’s turbulence from a transition.


4. Give yourself some “down time”. Because transitions often trigger feelings of stress, it’s important to allow yourself plenty of breaks for rest and relaxation. Taking part in your favorite hobbies or just hanging out around the house can give you time to recharge and help you deal with the current transition.


5. Reach out to others for support. Recognize that everyone, without exception, lives through transitions. Therefore, you can turn to others to hear their stories of how they got through such changes.


Major life transitions can be successfully managed if you apply the information above.


Knowing about common life transitions, planning ahead, spacing transitions, and continuing your routines are effective ways to cope. Also, taking rest breaks and asking others for support will provide you with what you need to face and deal successfully with whatever transitions life brings.

This post will come to maturity in your mind when you age. Imagine you look at your lifespan (which you have recently written about) in Ten Year periods. Allow me a bit of expansion on that:


Age 1-10 A grasping of who, what, where, and when/how you got here and what’s the requirements? How do I get from a to b the slickest way?


Age 11-20 Forming. Picking up the pieces. Plotting the course. Noticing the other gender? Get you one if you want one.


Age 21-30 Putting it into action. Discovery of the paths, but do you want to be on them? Are you headed the right way? You need $$$$$.


(WOW 30 years of your life already history!!!)


Age 31-40 Your locked in. You either hit the nail squarely, or your drowning in your own stupid mistakes. Hold it, still time to get it right. Consider risk management now, consider the future of your moves.


Age 41-50 Should be/could be/possibly is your best decade. You should be locked and cocked. Your fruits should be harvesting without effort. You should be shifting to your own inner desires and seeing about those. Your closing nifty fifty, Get some more of it NOW.


Age 51-60 The payback years. This should be some great time for you. It is almost time to go get your ticket punched. You worked it, did it, and made it in this decade. Your good to go. This should be the icing on your cake. Your physically fit, your well resourced, your ready to tread life your way. What did you miss the last 60 years? Get it now!!!


Age 61-70. The bonus years. No worries, be happy. Reflection time. Fish, swim, hike, eat, drink, be merry. Surely you prepared for this decade? Right? You Johnny-well better have, because the odds are not stacked in your favor unless you invent a new toothbrush or an easy way to clean a house and can sell it on TV by the zillions. Too late for that most likely. Nothing, however is impossible. These are your “glory years”. Luckily, you don’t need Viagra or some other “prop me up” drug. Chase those rainbows you had no time for before. The world is/should be your oyster.


Age 71-80. Some of you are still around, just not as aggressive as you used to be. Life can still be red wine and cheese if you are in good health. Some won’t buy Viagra until age 80. There are LOTS of single widows out there now, go get you one if you need one.


Age 80-90 Well, maybe you can catch up a little on those unread books you have stacked up under the bed. Get you a clock that does not run too well or too fast. Get some more of life as you can. If you took too much Viagra in the last decade, you may be blind by now, but if your not—hey, great!!!!


And during all this mess of decades of life, have all the fun you can. Tick Tick Tick!!

Your doing nothing but spending minutes. You will not be getting an extension of those!!!
