You, like me, have difficulty adjusting to major life changes, particularly those that wreak havoc on your established routine. You really want to share with me your tips, techniques and tactics for coping with these changes and adjusting.

We just added the second child to the household 10 days ago and I'm having the same difficulty adjusting to this new life as I did when my son was born in 2010. I know that there is an adjustment period and I know that it will take time. That being said, I know there has to be a better way to handle these changes than running a constant loop of negative thoughts in my head about how things *used* to be and how they will *never* get better again.
Is this something that mindfulness or even meditation can help with? I want to be able to turn the record around and get some perspective. Assume for the moment that therapy is something that I will pursue but not immediately given lots of different factors.
