It’s hard to start your life moving forward after the loss of a loved one. How we respond to grief and it’s stress often comes down to how we feel about ourselves.
It is so much easier if you can give your self-esteem a boost as it reinforces your ability to deal with the crisis on hand. The key is to adopt an entirely new mind set, one that reinforces your ability to deal with grief and bounce back from it’s blows.
Commit to Learning – doing new activities will challenge you and expand your social life.
Ignore your”Negative Voice” – drown it out with a positive thought or idea.
Pamper Yourself- Buy a special treat for yourself, like scented soap or a favorite tea
Write out Your “To-Do” list – Crossing off the items when they are done builds confidence.
Don’t Compare – Your self worth is not based on how you measure up to others.
Do Good Things – Donate and Volunteer because doing good will make you feel good.
Walk With Confidence – move with a bounce in your step and you will feel more positive.
