There is no rule book for recovering from grief. The varieties of grief are as unique as each rare human being, and it is important to honor the way in which your own grief arises, fluctuates, and runs its course…or even lingers beyond the time you’d expect. Although we have centuries of human experience from which we can see that grief goes through stages, as Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross pointed out – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally, acceptance – these are not stages like chapters in a book where one ends and the next begins. Rather, they tend to weave in and out of each other, so that you might have what seems like a reasonably “good” day one day and then, the next, you are once again overcome with missing your loved one.

Music to Grieve to

Listening to sad music after losing a loved one, being diagnosed with a terminal illness, or finalizing a divorce might seem counterintuitive, but this somber sounding activity has been proven to help.

Nothing can prepare you for grief, nor is there a right or wrong way to deal with it, but sad music is an easily accessible and highly effective tool that can help you begin to heal.
