Make Your Transitions Matter

As humans, we have the ability to adapt to different circumstances, but these processes need a transition.

In this episode, Susan and CrisMarie dive deep into what a transition is, how we can make them better and how they are a benefit to digest experiences. Transitions matter and it is important that we have time to process what is going on around us. They often help us navigate from one situation to another and embracing them, shows compassion to ourselves and to others. This is key when making transitions.

There is no right or wrong way to go through transitions, keep that in mind. You will need time to digest the experiences you have during the day.
