Helping Yourself Heal From Loss

By: David Tindall

The feeling of loss of a loved one who has passed is a very personal experience. Your friends and relatives can sympathise with you but may not understand the depth of your loss. Healing is internal to an individual and needs time, space and effort. Some ideas that may help the healing process are:

1. A Break From your Routine

Most individuals need to return to their routine life that involves going to work, managing household responsibilities, caring for children and elderly family members etc. This leaves them with very little time for personal healing during the grief period.

It can create stress and discomfort. If ignored, it can sap your energy and desire to live. It is important to break from the routine and attend to restoring your personal well-being. It helps the healing process and allows you to return to your daily life with zest.

2. Never Shy From Seeking Help

Many people are resistant to seeking help from others during their grief period. They do not want to burden their family and friends with their personal problems. If your discomfort increases, do seek help before depression sets in. In such a situation, your parents and siblings will willingly come forward to assume your responsibilities. The relief can help you recover faster from the distress you are experiencing.

3. Healthy Ways

It is important to seek healthy ways to pass through the grief journey. Some turn to alcohol to temporarily forget their grief but it is not a useful choice and can destroy your health. A better way is to enjoy nature by going for a walk on a beach, or in a park. If you love music, attend a concert. If you enjoy the company of people, volunteer for a cause or attend an art class. Any activity that speeds your recovery process is worth a try.
