“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

– BRENE BROWN

April’s small steps for dealing with grief & loss

Feel your loss – Whether you’re numb, consumed by emotion or somewhere in between, it can be helpful to spend some time sitting with our loss. Although difficult, we need to feel the pain in order to process and make meaning from loss.

Express your loss – Talk about it, write about it, sing about it, dance to it, put a tune to it. Expressing grief, particularly through writing or other creative pursuits, can help process the deeper emotional content of our grief

Try to take meaning from your loss – What has this loss taught you about what’s important in life? How has it changed you and shaped you?

Bring it back to basics – Look after yourself as best you can. Focus on exercising, eating proper meals, getting enough sleep, connecting with your support networks and keeping a routine to help give you purpose.

Be gentle – There’s no right way to do it and you’re doing the best you can.

Outside the therapy room

April can be found on weekend adventures all over Sydney, trying out new restaurants and cafes. She’s a keen tennis player and loves being out in nature, hiking and chasing waterfalls. April savours time with those she loves, and spending time alone, reading, listening to podcasts and binge-watching Netflix series. She has big love for a good macchiato and the kitchen is her happy place.

What I’m Reading…

THE CIRCADIAN CODE SATCHIN PANDA

The Circadian Code is an interesting and informative read on how to re-align or get in sync with our body’s instinctive biological rhythm. It has been a good reminder and guide in slowing down, listening to my body on a biological level and refocusing on the basics for general wellbeing.
