ME versus WE: How to deal with my new environment

It can be difficult, as even positive life transitions tend to cause some stress. Over the course of a lifetime, a person can expect to experience a significant amount of change. Some of these changes, such as hostel, relocation and new college are generally positive, although they may be accompanied by their own unique stressors and may cause a significant amount of stress.

Certain changes, such as entering school, staying in a hostel, can often be exciting, even when they cause some amount of stress, because they are generally considered to be positive changes. Many people look forward to obtaining a degree, rising in their chosen field, or having a home and family.

Changes, and especially difficult changes, can influence personal growth, and dealing with a change successfully may leave one stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what comes next in life. In other words, even those changes that are neither expected nor wanted might still produce some beneficial outcome.

Disha Program aims at helping the students understand that not all changes are negative and if dealt effectively can help in building a positive and strong self. It also helps in building resilience and self-concept. As the environment is new and the students are trying to settle in and find their comfort zone or are trying to adjust in the given surrounding it might affect them personally and cause them a lot of stress, helping them understand and acknowledge the change helps in making them understand that’s it’s just a part of life and building support group and trying to adopt the situation in a constructive way will help them build themselves better.
