Change Aid

This week’s trek is inspired Michael Singer's work on the role fear and uncertainty play in our ability to conceptualize change.

Are there times in your life when you have been resistant to change?

Change is hard to conceptualize and a lot of times the resistance we feel towards it results from our fear of the unknown. At the same time, we change all the time without really paying attention to it (remember  popcorn shirts? ). This exercise gives you a chance to reflect on how change has been beneficial to you in the past in order to give you more confidence in your ability to embrace it moving forward. 

Introducing Your Change Aid Exercise

What It Is
A 10-15 minute opportunity to embrace the uncertainty of change.

Why We Love It 
It's often really easy to assume that the situation you are in right now is fixed. That things shouldn't change and that you won't benefit from change. This exercise helps us recognize the simple ways we've endured change in our lives and reminds us that, in many cases, change can bring us possibilities we never even imagined. 

How It Works
1.  Take 5 minutes at the beginning of your day tomorrow and reflect on this question:
- What’s something you’ve let go of that once meant the world to you? 
- Why was this particular thing so important to you at that point in your life?
- What's different in your life now that you no longer place as much importance on it?

2. Then, take 5 minutes and reflect on this question:
- What’s something you love today that you never even knew you needed in your life?

3. Now, consider something that might be changing in your life right now. Imagine yourself a few years down the road after the change has occurred.
- What might be different in your life at that point?
- How might you be more empowered in a new or different way than you are right now?
- What kinds of opportunities might have opened up for you as a result of this change?

"Listen Up was one of my favorite treks. It helped me rethink how I engage in conversations and understand what it really takes to actively listen."
