Grief has no sense of time. Everyone deals with grief in their own way. We understand that you are hurting. We know that you miss the moments of happiness this loved one and you shared. Grief is powerful. Although grief does not magically disappear one day, there is a sense of relief in knowing that over time the hurt does lessen. Soon, there will be a day when you begin to feel the dawn of hope and acceptance.
Will Spring Ever Come?
Spring is a time of rebirth, life, and a new sense of hope. When you grieve during the springtime, it does not always feel that way. You begin to lose your motivation.
It can be difficult to feel content during times of struggle. There are days you might feel fine. You may feel that you have nothing to worry about. Other days, we find ourselves back in a slump and cannot seem to shake away these feelings of depression, worry, confusion, and even, guilt. There is hope.
Allow the season of spring to encourage you to keep moving forward. Allow it to be your gateway to a happy, healthy you.
What Can I Do To Feel Happy Again?
Grief affects people through breakups, becoming an empty nester, and the sudden death of a loved one. There are many ways that people cope. Find healthy ways to grieve without feeling that overwhelming sensation. A couple of ways to ease the depression of grief are to:
- Stay in a routine – One of the best things you can do is to keep your mind healthy and active. Set a schedule. Find a consistent time to wake up and go to bed, to eat nutritious meals, to do physical activity for a minimum of one hour or periodically throughout the day, and to talk. Avoid staying in doors, if possible, to keep your mind active and you busy. You will encourage your five senses to keep you focused. This will encourage you to cope in a healthy way.
- Reach out – Reach out to family, friends, or a support group. Have your support people check-in with you, deliver meals, or run errands for you. Avoid stressing yourself out. Find a support network who will be there for you consistently. Grief happens in waves – there are times of extreme highs, extreme lows, and everything in between. Seek help for long-term support.
Grief is difficult, but there is hope. Remind yourself that you are in control.
