News & Notes

How do we get comfortable with grief? There is no one right way. Like ocean waves, grief may look different on different days and can feel different to different people. Maybe time will help us feel comfortable, or learning to face the grief head on and not hiding from it may help. Sometimes we might find that we can slow down, sit and breathe through the feelings; while other times, our grief requires more work, like therapy, exercise or journaling. Once you recognize ways that help you feel comfortable with grief, take note, and use them the next time you feel yourself starting to drown.

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.
