Change, a word that we always have in our mouths but less often on the agenda. Be it business, personal, political, economic. Whether it is voluntary or involuntary, sometimes we do not admit it but there is an inherent in us a mysterious force that tends to inertia and makes us look to Change with fear or at least with caution.
However, it is necessary to distinguish when the one to change is one responsible and personal choice or a situation in which we find ourselves perhaps even suddenly. In the first case we can manage the Change setting small and progressive goals that free us from feelings of guilt and second thoughts. In the second case, in front of unpredictable circumstances and you don't always want, it's not that easy to keep your mind clear. We can fall prey to a sense of loss or even frustration. We can, but we can also manage the Change by changing our approach.
Without going through the etymology enthusiast which I am not, I like to explore the origins and singularities of words because they are often unexpectedly illuminating. We find the idea of changing homes, seasons, temperatures, but also habits, character and even status. Not in the sense of transfer but of "state of aggregation" and in this case it is the matter that carries out a change, not us in person. For example water that becomes ice or steam.

Easy to say, easy to design, but then you find yourself in a new context, with different hours from the "usual" and colleagues with whom you can build new friendships or at least win-win partnerships.
They may initially pop up symptoms of stress and depression, anxiety: insomnia, colitis, headache, or even worse. It is important not to oppose the Change that has begun and at times let oneself be guided by the flow it entails, keeping your hands on the wheel but with an open mind. Then there are those who feel ready or have a strong need to radically change their lives: what they do for them is Human Destination.
We talk more and more of climate changes and with fear, they are actually a current phenomenon that concerns temperatures and precipitation, but also snow, the global mean sea level and everything that exists on earth and pays the consequences of our environmental unconsciousness.
We will hear more of these changes and to keep the fear of catastrophes at bay we can only do our part every day trying to lead one life with low environmental impact.
