As difficult as this may sound, try to take care of yourself physically. We all need to rest, sleep, eat well at the best of times. This is even more important whilst we are grieving. Take your daily exercise and try to engage with people whilst being mindful of social distancing measures.
Continue to stay in touch with family and friends. Whilst there is no substitute for being with those you love and care for during a time of loss, you can still stay connected by using the telephone, social media and video calling. Just because you cannot physically touch them does not mean you cannot receive emotional support from those who care about you.
You need to show yourself compassion. Learn to be your own best friend. Be kind to yourself. Try to understand and acknowledge that this is a difficult and unusual time to have to deal with grief and loss. Remind yourself that lockdown is not forever and there will be a time when you can get together with your family and friends and share your feelings in a more normal way.
It is important to acknowledge your loss and accept your feelings without allowing it to overwhelm you. Do things you enjoy. Read, listen to music, cook, draw, look after your home and garden, do things that help to distract you from what can be an all-consuming feeling of loss.
