Allow for Healthy Grieving by Making Pre Death Arrangements

No one knows when it may be time to say goodbye. Unfortunately, life can end in the blink of an eye. You can’t plan when, how, or why life ends, but you can help your friends and family in making pre passing arrangements. Doing so allows your loved ones to focus on grieving your loss, taking the stress away from the post life planning process.

Even after passing, the impact of making pre arrangements allows for your family to rest assured they are honoring your legacy how you want to be honored. The weight of planning and organizing your arrangements will all be lifted from your family after you pass. This allows more time to focus on the memory and allow the process of healing to begin. The following are a list of arrangements that you can handle prior to passing. To begin, have a will in order. Having a will in place is key to ensuring that everything you own gets into the hands of your loved ones. A will also ensures the bank or other legal firms do not take assets that have not been correctly designated. Having one prepared will save your loved ones time, money, and ensure that they receive everything you have intended for them.

Additionally, a rather simple step that can be taken is designating someone to head your funeral arrangements. Find a loved one you would like to leave in charge of your post life arrangements and have them assist you in your plans. They can help you prepare for things such as the funeral service, burial or cremation plans, and financial options. Remember to keep them in the loop and allow them to ask questions and state concerns when necessary. Finally, locate all important documents that loved ones may need at any point. Make a file including any documents (Birth Certificate, Marriage License, Bank Information, Etc.) that may be helpful to loved ones after you have passed.

Each of these tasks are great ways to help your family even after you are gone. However, achieving these tasks can be complicated. There are many online resources available to help you in your arrangements. Do some research on each of these tasks. You can find an article here which covers each of these steps more in depth should you be interested.

Overall, it is a helpful and loving gesture to have prearrangements made before passing. Preparing these arrangements will ensure that your loved ones are looked after even once you have passed.

Moving Through the Seven Stages of Grief

When a heart breaks, you’re left gasping for air. After a while you seem fine, yet fall apart unexpectedly at random moments, sanity seemingly forsaken. There’s a saying that when a heart breaks, it cracks to allow golden love to shine through onto others. Do you see the value in going through this?It may not feel like it now, but grief is an honor. It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
