Grief Support Guide Gives Twin Cities Families Ways to Stay Positive and Active at the Holidays

A St. Paul funeral home seeks to help local families coping with grief over the holidays with a guide to remembrance ideas and building new family traditions.

Saint Paul, MN (I-Newswire) December 12, 2013 - In an effort to help local Minnesotans who are going into the holidays with heartache this year, St. Paul funeral home Mueller Memorial has published "Happy at the Holidays." The grief support guide reaches out to those individuals and families and offers ways to manage their sorrow while staying active.

For many, this year will be a little less joyful due to the recent death of a loved one. The holiday season, normally a time to celebrate family traditions, often accentuates these losses. "Happy at the Holidays" works to balance healthy holiday grief and remembrance ideas with steps to moving forward.

To help those coping with grief, the guide gives tips for:
Staying physically active with indoor and outdoor activities
Fostering deeper connections with family, friends, and community
Trying new things and starting new holiday traditions
Remembering loved ones at Christmas

Additionally, "Happy at the Holidays" includes a list of low and no-cost events and activities around the Twin Cities. From the Holidazzle Parade on Nicollet Mall to the Noon Years Party at the Como Park Zoo, these attractions give those missing a loved one a chance to still enjoy the season with others. If cold temperatures keep families indoors, the guide also has a recommended list of fun and classic holiday movies.

"The purpose of this guide is to encourage and uplift local people dealing with grief during the holiday season," said Scott Mueller, owner and director of Mueller Memorial funeral service. "We don't want to simply distract people - it's healthy to mourn a loss - but we do hope that we can help them reconnect with others and take steps towards a healthy future."
