020 | Life’s Normality, Seasons and Changes [coming home from world travels]

How to cope with a new normal | with Annie Miller The FitsPRO Podcast

Today’s episode goes out to all humans who have every experienced a change in their “normal.” For those times when you graduate, move, start a new job, enter a relationship, end a relationship, change your lifestyle, bring a human into the world. You know, the times your “normal” changes and becomes a NEW “normal.”

This particular episode was inspired by my current life events (or soon to be). At the end of this month (May), Nate and I will return to the states after one year of traveling the world. Just over 365 days abroad.

And several humans may think we are returning to our old “normal” way of life. But that would be a false assumption. While we are returning to our old home, family, and SOME aspects of our old life, there will be far more that is NEW to us.

Nate won’t be working, I’ll be self employed (which I’ve never been AT HOME before – more on that inside the episode), we will be a one car fam, and there are A LOT of unknowns in our future. So it will without a doubt be a NEW normal for the Millers.

But this episode goes far beyond my new norm and it’s potential stressors. This one is for you as well. If you’ve ever had a new normal (which I think you have), if you’re in one now or you’ll have one in the future, then you need to give this one a listen.

New normals are rarely a smooth transition, and that’s so so so important to note, be aware of, and properly plan for. I should have gone deeper into this on today’s episode but just know that it’s okay to change your normal, transition periods can be hard, and you have the power to change your current norm at any time + the power to set realistic goals for yourself during that time.

Your norm now, won’t be your norm forever. That’s inevitable. Hopefully today’s episode can shine some light on that fact.
