There are many ways to grieve. Here are some common tips that may be able to assist you.

Talk to your doctor

Talking to your regular doctor is a great way to keep an eye on your mental wellbeing. Grieving is a difficult process, and it is always a good idea to speak to a professional if you are concerned.

Choose your company

Be sure to spend time with people that can support you and understand what you are going through.

Try and take it easy

It can be common to feel exhausted both physically and emotionally. Try to give your body some extra time to rest if you feel you need it.

Keep to a routine

It can be helpful to maintain a routine. Set a time to wake up each morning, get dressed and ensure you are eating regular meals.

It is important to remember you are not alone. Here are some resources that might be able to assist you and remember you can always speak to your GP.
