Everyone experiences loss at some point in their life. Whether it’s the passing of a loved one or beloved pet, the breakup of a friendship or romance, a divorce, getting fired, losing a limb, or suffering a natural disaster, it hurts. We all experience a grieving process to overcome it, helping us to become stronger and create a new normal life.
How we cope with and process our emotions after these losses and tragedies occur determines how the rest of our lives unfold. We either remain victimized by these experiences, staying stuck in the grief emotions, or we come to some sense of acceptance and explore different ways to experience happiness in our lives.
In Solving the Grief and Loss Puzzle, author Barbara Steingas pinpoints the top seven body, mind, emotional, and spiritual strategies key to dealing with and recovering from the loss of a loved one and other forms of grief. Based on her personal experiences, she shares how she pieced together her new normal life of health, happiness, and joy after the devastating losses of her husband and then three years later, her fiancé. Her advice helps heal the mind and the heart.
