Before loss, our schedules revolve around our loved ones, their needs, and expectations, as well as our own. In my experience, my schedule revolved around caring for my husband, his medication schedule, and doctor’s appointments. When he was no longer my focus, it was very difficult to create and maintain my own schedule.
For others, certain times of day can evoke intense grief because they serve as reminders of the loved one(s) they have lost.
As we grieve, we must become aware enough to anticipate triggers such as these. One of the ways to do this is to create our own unique ritual, which provides sufficient time to practice self-care, complete necessary daily tasks, and initiate a healthy focus as we move forward.
The concept of creating ritual is so close to my heart that I’ve included it in my upcoming e-course, Redefining Yourself: Creating LIFE Beyond LOSS. Throughout the course I’ll be providing a teaching on Creating Ritual.
The most awesome thing about this e-course is that it is completely FREE! I will be unveiling it next week, so please, be on the lookout and be sure to tell your friends!
