Y – Your Self Care

Grief and trauma may be experienced in a variety of ways: emotionally, physically, mentally, socially, psychologically, behaviorally, and spiritually. Our minds and bodies can react with shock, rage, fatigue, sleep disturbances, appetite changes, mood fluctuations, isolation, forgetfulness, and loss of concentration. Managing grief and trauma with “extreme self care” will assist by:

  • Boosting physical energy levels
  • Reducing feelings of stress and anxiety
  • Assisting the mind with clarity and focus
  • Increasing self-esteem and feelings of self-worth
