59.0 Returning to Bad Habits to Stop the Pain? 3 Healthy Ways to Deal with Grief.


In life before grief, you probably dealt with self-limiting thoughts that kept you ‘in your head’ and overthinking things.  In grief, you’re gonna deal with any self-limiting thought and all doubts that have ever crossed your mind.  You will struggle with those thoughts more than usual which will tempt you to find comfort quickly in unhealthy behaviors. 


Let me go ahead and tell you that finding comfort in unhealthy habits (be they old or new) will complicate your life and prolong your grief.  Yes, there will be days where you feel extremely weak and comfort in those wrong things will feel like the right or only thing that will help.


Grief is hard enough, don’t make your life harder.  In this episode, I’m going to talk about some of those habits and 3 healthy ways to NOT go to or return to them. 


WORD of the Week  Matthew 11:28-30

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
