HELP FOR THOSE WHO GRIEVE

  • 1: ACCEPT SUPPORT FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS

    According to your needs, balance time spent with others and time spent alone.

  • 2: WATCH YOUR DIET, AND MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE

    Eat healthful food, drink plenty of water, and exercise moderately.

  • 3: GET PLENTY OF SLEEP

    Recognize that sleep is essential to dealing with the fatigue of grieving.

  • 4: BE FLEXIBLE

    Since everyone grieves differently, find what works for you.

  • 5: AVOID SELF-DESTRUCTIVE HABITS

    Avoid the misuse of alcohol or drugs​—which creates more problems than it solves.

  • 6: BALANCE YOUR TIME

    Alternate periods of grieving with time for socializing and recreation.

  • 7: KEEP A ROUTINE

    Regain a sense of normalcy by keeping yourself occupied with a good routine.

  • 8: AVOID MAKING BIG DECISIONS TOO SOON

    If possible, wait a year or more before making big decisions you may later regret.

  • 9: REMEMBER YOUR LOVED ONE

    Collect pictures and mementos or write in a journal to keep alive your memory of the person who has died.

  • 10: GET AWAY

    Make time for a change of pace​—even if for just a day or part of a day.

  • 11: HELP OTHERS

    Renew your sense of purpose by doing things for those who need help, including others affected by the loss of your loved one.

  • 12: REEVALUATE YOUR PRIORITIES

Being the Other Woman/Other Man

This is for anyone who has lost their lover to death and you were the other woman/other man in their life. We have to grieve in silence. I can't find any support groups and feel like I'm the only one going through this situationSee More
