The new strain of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has ushered in a new and unfamiliar age of grief and anxiety to most, if not all, of us, worldwide. For those who are already grieving a significant loss, the extra burdens of worry, fear, and social isolation can make that more difficult. For others, the shock and unaccustomed lifestyle changes required might be debilitating. All of us may experience substantial issues surrounding our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
In a way, grief is grief. Loss is loss. The loss that is most important to an individual, however, is the one that person experiences. As we join together to endure what we must, there are a few concepts and actions that could help us make it through.
