They say there are two certainties in life: death and taxes. Both can be painful, but dealing with grief and loss, especially during the festive season, can be an emotional rollercoaster. It’s why we’re shining a light on Grief Awareness Week (2-8 December), which aims to open up the conversation around bereavement, and are sitting down for a chat with grief recovery specialist Liz Tayor.
As a society, we tend to shy away from talking about the inevitable, wrapping up death in phrases like ‘passed away’, ‘at peace’ or ‘rest in power’. But normalising the conversation around loss of all kinds is Liz’s superpower, and she’s here to provide some tools to help you deal with loss, as well as offer advice on how to support someone going through grief and bereavement.
Here’s why you need to tune in
Discover advice on coping with a difficult anniversary, the positive steps you can take to remember someone and continue that bond, and why it’s important to think about whether your funeral is for you or the people you’ve left behind. 🤗
Here’s what to listen out for:
[01:26] How Liz became a grief recovery specialist.
[06:06] Why grief is like an iceberg.
[12:21] How grief feels.
[15:00] Dealing with a difficult anniversary.
[19:11] How to continue the bond with a loved one who has died.
[21:21] Navigating Christmas after loss.
[27:44] Why it’s important to outline what you want at your funeral.
As Liz says, “grief can be devasting, but it can also be enlightening”.
