Are you living your best life?

What hopes, dreams, or expectations did you have for your life? What do you wish had been different, better, or more fulfilling? Answering these questions helps you identify incomplete losses. Loss is a guaranteed aspect of life. How you deal with your losses can greatly affect many areas of your life. Grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. There are over forty-three different types of loss that can produce symptoms of grief: death, divorce, retirement, moving, loss of a pet, financial change, unemployment, career changes, infertility, loss of health, legal problems, empty nesting, starting school, or even the end of an addiction. Any life change can be a grieving experience for you.

Family Influence

Many of us grew up in families where difficult emotions were not discussed. Rather, we were advised to focus on the positive or be strong and carry on. What did that advice teach us moving into adulthood? How does this approach serve us in making major life decisions?  

Your Health

Unresolved grief can greatly affect our health and happiness. Symptoms of depression can resemble grief: sadness, loss of energy, changes in eating behavior, sleep disruption, inability to focus, sensitivity or anger, withdrawal, and isolation.

The Grief Recovery Method® helps address:

Coping Strategies

It is all too common to turn to food, alcohol, drugs, long work hours, excessive exercise, shopping, sex or infidelity, gambling, video games, and other behaviors in attempts to deal with our losses in life. The Grief Recovery Method® helps you identify how these behaviors might be present in your life. Awareness is the first step to changing any undesired behavior.

 

Boundaries

  

Having healthy boundaries in all of our relationships is key to living a balanced lifestyle. Being comfortable knowing when to say yes and how to say no keeps you in control of your life. Many of us live with overextended schedules, allowing self-care to be virtually nonexistent. Our serenity and joy suffers as a result.

Relationships

Divorce is the second leading cause of grief, following death. How you recover from divorce or the ending of a relationship can impact many areas of your life and future relationships. The Grief Recovery Method® can help you find peace and provide clarity as you move forward. The process helps release your emotions associated with the end of a relationship, leaving your heart open for love.
