Preparation: The Key to Success

Bringing your loved ones out of their comfort zones can be a stressful task.  It is easy to stick with what is comfortable and known.  However, there are times we need to move beyond what we already know.  When you know it is time for a change, prepare!

  1. Expectations:  Describe the experience step by step, in writing or with pictures.
  2. Practice: Share your story and practice the steps.
  3. Schedule: Put your new activity on the schedule and share the change, with plenty of time for your loved one to practice and understand.

You have prepared for the change, now it’s time to do it, and add another experience to their comfort zone.
