Trust these three things that work for me, work for you:
- Plan your day the night before. Make sure you have your priorities and actions clearly written down.
- Share your grief throughout the day. Talking about it is good for you. Give yourself short intervals of grief airtime. Then read your plan for the day and get back into action.
- Be patient with yourself. Don’t expect it to go away quickly. Acknowledge yourself. Support yourself with breaks, cups of coffee and food. Keep going back to your plan and keep working it throughout the day. If you see that it’s a good idea to call it a day and go home – do that. Take care of yourself. You are your number one priority.
