Positive Living Guide Now Available to Those Dealing with Loss During the Holiday Season
Families dealing with grief this season can find support with St. Paul-based "Happy at the Holidays," a guide to activities and remembrance ideas.
Saint Paul, MN (I-Newswire) December 20, 2013 - While the holidays are usually seen as a time of joy and happiness, they can be uniquely challenging for individuals who have recently lost a loved one. To help those coping with grief this season, Minnesota-based HappyAtTheHolidays.com has recently released its 2014 guide to staying positive and active during an otherwise difficult holiday time.
The grief support website publishes an updated version of the guide, "Happy at the Holidays," each year. It seeks to help local families in the Twin Cities by giving tips on dealing with acute attacks of sadness, remembering loved ones at Christmas, and building new family traditions that honor lost members while striving to move forward.
Additionally, "Happy at the Holidays" includes a list of Minneapolis/St. Paul low-cost events and activities that help those dealing with grief stay active. The guide acknowledges that the season will never be the same, and encourages survivors to mourn for lost holiday traditions, while still advocating for them to seek out new opportunities.
"Simply avoiding grief through distraction is not our goal," said Scott Mueller, one of the guide's authors and the director of a local funeral service. "It's important to accept the change and mourn the loss, but it's equally important to take positive steps towards a healthy future."
Holiday grief can be difficult, as the season is associated with family and makes a loved one's absence all the more noticeable. "Happy at the Holidays" approaches this issue with a balance of coping tips and remembrance ideas sent right to an individual's inbox.
