Expert provides guide to coping with change in forthcoming book release

Change. The very word can strike fear in the heart of many - and not in a spare-change-found-in-between-the-cushions-of-the-couch sense, but as in "it is time to make some changes" or "things are going to change around here" or "change of plans." Even something as seemingly simple as the change to daylight savings time can leave many of us feeling frazzled, frenetic or just in a funk. According to David Malin, a renowned healer and expert in coping with change, "Change - whether a time change, career or relationship change, transitioning into retirement, moving, growing older, parenting, or trying to break a habit - can be fraught with challenges. When facing change, it is important to remember that in spite of the struggle, change presents a remarkable opportunity for self-discovery, healing and growth."

A pioneer in the field of Alternative Medicine and healing since 1977, David Malin is author of the forthcoming Embracing Change: Transforming Life's Challenges with Courage and Grace (Beaufort Books, ISBN: 978-0-825305-44-3, $22, April 2007).

According to Malin, "As we are faced with darker/colder mornings due to the time change, we can choice to moan and complain about this change, or we could take it as an opportunity to rejoice for the extra hour of light and warmth we now have at the end of the day. May we each find a way to enjoy this gift of extra daylight at the end of our day, which we have never before had so early in the Spring."

Malin offers the following tips for coping with the time change, and suggests using the extra hour of light after work to:

  •     take your kids and/or dog to the park
  •     go for a run or walk
  •     find a buddy and: shoot some hoops
  •     grab your mitts and a ball and play some catch
  •     find a quiet place to watch the sunset
  •     take a nice stroll breathing in the smells and sounds of spring
  •     go fishing
  •     plant some flowers or vegetables
  •     take time to reflect and be thankful for the "found time"
