When we are in sorrow, sometimes we need something for easing our grief. Here is a photo essay to inspire your journey.
The only cure for grief is action.
Here are some easy actions to consider.
Be Like Animals to Ease Grief
When easing grief, if we are feeling extroverted, it is good to be with like minded grievers. Find the kind who lift you up into their nest and share stories or perhaps just listen and console.
If you are feeling like the silent type, perhaps you may retreat into your own shell for a while.
Go for a swing. If someone looks at you the wrong way – just give them the stink eye.
Sometimes just relaxing on grass clippings can do the trick. Being with animals is great for easing grief, too! Somehow, it seems that animals understand what we are experiencing.
Other Grief Easing Practices
If things don’t go just right, it is okay to just allow a few things to slide.
Play some music via a CD or an instrument. That can always enhance one’s mood. You may choose something lively, moody, relaxing or whatever feeling you desire. Peace Inducing Arts elaborates on some other fine arts to brighten our outlook and ease our grief.
Find your spouse or a special friend for support. They may know exactly what you need.
Go sniff a flower – any flowers. The sense of smell can be a pick-me-up.
Make a craft project. You could even use pine cones. Going out for a walk in nature is relaxing. Perhaps if you can’t find any pine cones, Victor the Gnome may share with you!
Watch the sunset. Breathe deep. Tomorrow is another day.
