Self-Care for Widows

Self -Care is crucial to healing and ultimately thriving

  • Take care of yourself. Do what you need to do. This may mean letting go of some responsibilities, or simply going for a walk or taking a nap.
  • Identify what depletes you, and what energizes you – and seek the latter.
  • Do not ignore your own health. Stress will make you more susceptible to illness.
  • Exercise is always beneficial to your health and relieves stress.
  • Physical massage may help compensate for the lack of touch in your life.
  • If you do get sick, go to the doctor. Ask a friend or family member to go with you. Write down what was said. Investigate the side effects of any prescription drugs before you start taking them.
  • Consider keeping a journal – it may help you express and understand what you’re feeling.
  • Continue to pray, even if you don’t know the right words – God will hear you.
  • The distraction of grief makes you vulnerable – take advantage of things that will help keep you safe.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help – remind yourself that those who love you really do want to help.
