156.0 Health in Grief: Why it’s Important to Be Active to Start Feeling Better!



What does health have to do with what you are going through?  After all, who cares about being healthy when you’ve lost your loved one?  The short answer is that you should.  I’m not talking about the long-term results because getting active while in the day-to-day life of grief will do three things for you: improve your emotions, decrease overwhelm and give you a healthy distraction or break from the heaviness of what you must deal with. 

I wish I could tell you how I did that and how much it helped, but as you know my fight with God took all my energy the first 2 years and even when I was able to push, I didn’t.  If that’s you today, that’s perfectly alright, but what if you could feel better with minimal effort? 

Today we’ll talk about ‘challenging the impossible’ and I’ll share where I am in my health journey which started in earnest in February of this year. This is important for my long-term health, but it’s also the last thing I never took control of after Monica died.

Going through grief, you are equipping yourself to improve your health because the processes are similar. And, if you improve your health, you will help your daily emotions.   


WORD of the Week   For you have need of patient endurance [to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising], so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised. Hebrews 10:36 (amplified)
