Coping with Grief During the Holidays

While holiday jingles may attest to this being “the most wonderful” time of year, we know that’s not the case for everyone. At Family Legacy, we understand how difficult this time of year can be for those families who have experienced loss. We are committed to helping you through it.

Family Legacy offers many grief resources. If you need someone to talk to, call or come by any of our locations. Our staff of friendly, experienced professionals can provide helpful literature or refer you to peer support groups and grief counselors within our community.

In addition, here are a few strategies that you might consider to help you cope with grief during the holidays:

  1. Take Care of Yourself

It’s important to make time for yourself, focus on rest and not taking on any more than you can handle during this time.  Schedule time to do something your enjoy, perhaps time for a certain hobby or a trip to the movies, for example.

 

  1. Look for Support

Share your feelings with friends and family, it can be a source of support during this time.  If you do not have local family or friends to reach out to, consider looking for a local support group.  Contact us, we can help connect you with a group.

 

  1. Honor the Memories

Create a special way to honor your loved one.  Perhaps it is as simple as lighting a candle each day or eating a dish of their favorite food.  Honoring the memories is proof that love never dies.

 

We wish you a blessed holiday.
