From Information to Transformation

When just knowing is not enough

A story came to mind this morning as I was out walking my dog. When my kids were little I used to read a children´s book called Chicken Little. In short the story was about how Chicken Little got hit in the head by a fallen acorn and thought the sky was falling and warned all other animals who also panicked. I remember the lines “the sky is falling, the sky is falling” and all the animals ran around in circles out of fear.

I think one of the most important things we can do for our wellbeing right now is to look at stress management. What do I mean by that? Most people have heard of mindfulness and meditation and other methods for dealing with stress but are not sure how it can help in times like this.

A big problem today is not the lack of information, or even dis-information, but a lack of transformation.

We can all read what to do, wash hands for 20 seconds, trying to eat healthy, have some social distancing etc. So all the information is already there but still so many have fears and worry so it is not enough to know, we also have to do.

Same thing goes for stress management. It is not enough with information about stress and facing fears, it is about having someone there to take you through the process, to take you through the transformation going from Stress to Strength.

If you feel you need help with that transformation, feel free to reach out to me.
