Healing after significant loss requires rebuilding your life. One small step to doing just that is to look for "mini moments" where you can pause (we're talking actual moments, seconds, and very short segments of time) and tend to your healing.
Such a huge goal … rebuild your life … such small steps. Yes. But life is made up of small steps, small moments, great, long strings of them.
"I don't have time." But you do. Take time from Internet use (after you read this article). Train yourself to recognize tiny opportunities that come your way during each day. Refocus negative moments you're using now into directed positive time-breaks. Schedule mini moments throughout the day. Take mini-moment vacations on the weekends or in the evenings.
You can do this.

Losing someone you love is difficult, but it can mean a lot to hear from others traveling similar paths.
