Uncertainty can have a powerful effect on your well being. In a Fast Company article, How Your Brain Reacts To Change, uncertainty looms large again. The article speaks to our desire for clarity during times of change and suggests that seeking out information in the face of uncertainty is a crucial way to adjust to change.
So often, when change occurs, the first instinct is to panic and go cruising into anxiety (the future) or negative comparisons (the past). When change unsettles you, seek out information in the present moment.
The best way to bring yourself to the present moment is to stop. Get comfortable with the practice of stopping – allowing yourself to be fully present to whatever is happening. From that place, your view is not distorted. You can choose your next steps and not be ruled by the fog of uncertainty.
