A key concept in Kinesiology, and life in general, is the change process. Within Kinesiology, theories on the change process are most often used to guide the practice of encouraging healthy liftestyle choices. Concerning the mutiple phases one might go through as part of the change process, and what possible resistance to change there may be, there are already multiple exhaustive references on those sub-topics within the field of motivation study in psychology. Although I shall revisit these later, for now let us concentrate more on change itself, rather than resistance to change.
Embracing change does not merely mean not being resistant to change. (double negativity does not suffice; positive affirmation is necessary)
It certainly does not mean to force oneself to act against one’s Self. (self-defeat does not lead to successful change)
What then, constitutes embracing the change process ?
We change based on the information that we seek or is given to us and to which we are truly open, deeply experiencing it by allowing it to reshape our thoughts & cognitive processes as well as our emotions and psyche.
