When you’re living through a season of grief, it can be difficult to get through the days—especially at first. It’s helpful to know some everyday, simple activities that you can do to help manage your grief.
Building these practices into your daily routine can carry you through hard times and might even help you heal along the way.
Gift boxes for grief are a wonderful way to show support for your loved ones in the aftermath of a death.
There are many items you can include in a care package, depending on the recipient and the situation. Often, these sympathy gifts can help to nurture your loved one as they move through grief.
Wind chimes for sympathy are popular gifts for those who have lost loved ones; they're one of our most frequently searched-for items.
These beautiful, soothing gifts are perfect for hanging outdoors. And when it comes to memorial wind chimes, the lovely, tinkling sounds serve as a reminder of loved ones who have gone before us.
Have you ever thought about how horrible it would be to lose an aging parent or a long-time pet and felt your breath catch in your throat? Or maybe you look at your young, healthy spouse and become deeply sad thinking about losing them one day.
Sometimes it can feel like we're grieving for loved ones before we've actually lost them, whether it's a loss that we know is coming (as in the case of terminal illness and you're working through the five stages of grief) or it's just one that we fear.
When someone we love loses someone they love, it's natural to want to do something to offer support. It can be difficult to determine what's the most helpful and appropriate way to offer sympathy to the bereaved.
As a result, many find themselves asking "Should I send a sympathy gift?"
It's common to hear that "grief is a journey." When you lose someone you love dearly, it's not something that takes a day or a week to get over, and healing isn't always linear.
Instead, it's common to move through different phases of grief where you alternately experience emotions like anger, denial, and depression.
While every journey to heal from loss is unique, there's some universal element to mourning at the same time. This is reflected through the well-known five stages of grief.
