Be it a change of job, house, territory, relations et al. This discomfort invites an unending flow of thoughts and emotions, fear, and doubts. Eventually, all collectively bring a toll on physical and mental sanity.

One can not give a healthy start to the new change with the vulnerable mind and body unless he/she has prepared his mind for the change. A prepared, calm mind has the power to accept things in the same way they come. Any kind of unfavorability doesn’t shake their sanity.
