Gain Control in Key Areas of Your Life

Change can happen in more than one area of your life at once—at home, to your health, to your family. Sometimes your individual change areas can feel somewhat manageable. But when change occurs in several areas, it can feel overwhelming, leading to a great deal of confusion and uncertainty.

By looking at your life in 8 key areas, you can get a clearer focus on the parts of your life that are currently stable, those that are changing, and how well you are responding to these changes. This helps you recognize which areas you want to concentrate on. As you focus on stabilizing one area at a time, you will regain a sense of control over multiple changes. 

Here are the 8 key areas of life, along with a brief description of each. For each area, select the option that best describes the changes happening in this part of your life.
