The holidays are upon us. Memories are heightened during the holidays therefore you tend to create more memories during the holidays than any other time of the year. The traditions, the music, and the celebrations all create memories.
All those memories come flooding back when the lights show up, the music starts playing and many of the sights and sounds of the past are replayed in the current.
You’ll have many opportunities during this time of year to process through the memories and the emotions associated with those memories. Your reaction to this flood of emotion may be to freeze, flee or fight.
Don’t panic! There’s nothing wrong with you if you have any of these responses. It might not feel comfortable but it’s normal and you can get through it.
In today’s episode we’ll talk about grief during the holidays and releasing sadness, what that looks like and how to make the process a little more manageable.
Be sure to join us at buildalifeafterloss.com for all the latest on grief, hope and healing.
