How to Ride the Wave when Grieving

Listen in to hear more about each of these ways on how to ride the wave:

  1. Allow the feelings and waves.
  2. Do something creative.
  3. Try to refrain from something destructive (for me that was drinking or turning to over parent – using them to soothe loneliness)
  4. Declutter (your room or life) 
  5. Lose yourself in something 
  6. Daily habits are important
  7. Believe in magic
