Give Yourself Permission to Grieve
The first step to dealing with grief is just being aware that it’s important to take care of yourself. You’re not obligated to get back to your life right away, and you need time just for yourself.
Moreover, be gentle with yourself. Allow yourself the time and space you need to move through your grief. Grieving isn’t something you can rush through; it takes time and patience.
Recognize That Recovery Is a Process
Secondly, acknowledge that this process will take time. You won’t get over your grief overnight, and it’s OK if you don’t know how to handle the situation right now. What’s important is that you set some boundaries and take time to heal.
Take Care of Yourself and Your Mental Health
If you are grieving don’t neglect your mental health during the process of grief. Grief is an emotional process, and it’s important to care for your mental health in addition to caring for your physical well-being.
Take time to do things that make you happy such as spending time with friends or taking part in activities you enjoy. Don’t forget to pamper yourself. So if that means doing something like repairing your hair to make it feel soft and sumptuous, go for it.
Keeping up your personal appearance will do wonders for your well-being. Take care of yourself; you’ll be glad you did.
Spend Time Outside
One of the worst things you can do when grieving is to shut yourself inside your home and cut off connections to friends and nature. It’s certainly OK to be alone so you can grieve. But it’s important that you don’t let it control your life. Plus, the outdoors can do wonders for your mood.

A hair spa at home will not only provide extra love and care to your hair and scalp – but also soothes your soul. Throw in fresh flower petals in the bath, preferably ones with a perfume that will infuse the room with a delicate aroma, while enjoying some peaceful Spa music. The warm bath water will be wetting your hair thoroughly in preparation for its Spa moment.

Whether its friends, family, or an online support group, make sure you reach out to somebody who can offer emotional and physical support. Many people find meditation to be good for self-support, so consider taking a class or enrolling in yoga to help you get centered.
Learn to Alleviate Stress
An excellent way to combat grief is to learn how to identify triggers that cause you additional stress. Just knowing what brings sadness, pain, anxiety, and other stressors is the first step towards proper stress management.
Consider keeping a journal of things in your life that stress you out. Maybe it’s a certain type of music or a particular person. When you know what drags you down, you can take steps to actively avoid such pitfalls on your road to recovery.
