Loss and Grief: Coping with the Loss of Loved Ones

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult trials in life. Grieving is a natural process that is different for each person. Here are some tips to help you get through this difficult time.

Recognition of loss

The first thing to do is to admit your feelings. Mourning can cause a variety of emotions: sadness, anger, despair. Allow yourself to feel these emotions.

Talk about your feelings

Don’t keep it all to yourself. Talk to someone you trust about your feelings. This can be a friend, family member, or professional counselor.

Keep in touch

Keep in touch with your loved ones and friends. Social support is key in the recovery process.

Allow yourself time

There is no “normal” time to grieve. Give yourself plenty of time for the recovery process.

Get creative

Creativity can be therapeutic. It can be drawing, writing, music or other arts.

Support groups

Consider joining a support group where you can meet other people who are going through similar losses.

Remember to take care of yourself

Do not forget about physical activity, healthy food and sufficient sleep. Taking care of your physical health can help you better cope with emotional stress.

Professional help

If you feel that you cannot cope with your feelings, seek professional help.
