Techniques to deal with grief

In unhealthy anticipatory grief, we are experiencing anxiety. Our minds look for the worst scenarios. That's our minds being protective.

The goal is not to ignore the worst scenario, but to find a balance in the things you're thinking. If you think of the worst image, also make yourself see the best image.

Notice the present moment. You're okay. You have food. You can breathe deeply.

What your neighbor is doing is not in your control. What is in your control is staying far enough away from them and washing your hands.

There is something powerful when we name the feeling of grief. It helps us feel what's inside. You don't have to tell yourself that you feel sad but shouldn't feel sad. Just feel sad for a few minutes.

The last stage of grief is meaning. After acceptance, we want something meaningful to come out of those darkest hours.

Understand the stages of grief and realize that the stages are not linear.

We feel the world is different, and although temporary, we know it will not be the same again.

Anticipatory grief is feeling unsure of what the future holds. It is that same feeling when someone gets a grave diagnosis.
