Help for Coping during the Holidays
holiday cope

The sights, sounds, & smells of the Holidays stir up our memories. Those who experienced the death of someone loved can find these memories both wonderful & yet difficult.

The Holidays will soon be upon us. You may come to feel excited, lonely, anxious, moody, restless, apprehensive, angry, happy, tense, nervous, anticipatory, sad or depressed.

You may experience some or all of these emotions at different times.

This is okay.   This is normal.   This is grief.

Following is a list of local events, basic grief information, and words we hope you find helpful during these upcoming days.

We hold you in our thoughts and prayers, Jeff and Kelly Beede

Coping with the Holidays while you are grieving

Talk - about your grief, hurt, needs, memories

Respect and have compassion for yourself. You may experience a multitude of feelings and responses.

Respect your physical, spiritual and psychological limits. Grief is work, so be tolerant of your lack of energy. Being tired is a normal grief experience.

Eliminate unnecessary stress.

Be aware of pangs of grief, memory embraces, that come in waves at surprising times.

Balance solitude. Be with supportive & comforting people.

Break the conspiracy of silence. Name and talk about the loved one who has died.

Be intentional. Take charge. Decide what is right for YOU.

Renew the resources for living.

Do something creative.

Remember the rest of the family, especially children.

Express and incorporate your faith.

we remember them
