Coping with the Holiday Season

November 21, 2013

Coping with the Holiday Season is difficult!

What can you do to help yourself during the holidays after you have lost a loved one?



Handling the Holidays is difficult after you lose someone!


H      Help yourself by being realistic about what you can accomplish this season
O      Only YOU can understand how you feel right now

L      Let a caring friend or family member be a part of your holiday – spread the gift of love

I       Initiate old family traditions that help you feel good

D     DO NOT isolate yourself, but don’t feel you have to attend everything either

A      Allow for the possibility of creating new family traditions

Y      YOU are special! If there’s something extra you need to do for yourself, DO IT!

S      Seek the support of those you are comfortable with    


Please take some time for yourself during this Holiday Season. We understand that coping with the holidays is difficult.
