Last week, we spoke about the intense feelings of grief we might experience. In this episode, we talk about how we can continue moving through our lives as we are grieving. We discuss daily living tasks, such as feeding ourselves, caring for our children, and getting good sleep. We also talk about larger tasks, such as returning to work. We explore specific skills that can support you during these challenging times.
