Expectations and making changes

For some people, downloading this app might be a sign that you are ready for big changes in your life. You might have a sense that this isn’t going to be easy and might be a struggle sometimes.

At the same time, it might feel like things are a struggle already and it’s time for things to change as soon as possible. There can be a real sense of ‘c’mon, I’m ready, let’s get on with it!’

It’s important to try and stay realistic about how much can change and how quickly. You can make changes for the better in your life one step at a time.

Trying to work it all out can become overwhelming and frustrating. It can feel like everything in your life is beyond your control.

At times like this it can be helpful to try and focus on something you can control – it might be your breathing or what food you are going to eat tonight. These might seem like small decisions but they are important.

Making change happen requires focus, effort and repetition.
