People experience life transitions in various ways. These include things such as marriage, applying to school, having children, moving, divorce, changes in career or job, loss of a loved one, moving in with a partner, illness, and others. Some transitions are more obvious, and some can be more subtle.
What all transitions have in common is that they tend to activate a host of emotions all at once, and can push you into making other changes in your daily life beyond the one initial change. Some of these surrounding adjustments may be welcome, but others are not so welcome. These adjustments can trigger various types of emotional responses, such as overwhelm and exhaustion, anxiety, stress, depression, etc., and impact how you function on a daily basis.
