Celebrate Signs of Healing

Healing is natural in a healthy grief process. Being able to enjoy time alone, laughing at a joke or funny movie, planning pleasant activities for the future, having a renewed sense of energy and purpose – these are all signs of healthy healing.

Intentionally notice these changes and celebrate! You might want to keep track of these signs in a creative way, such as with a vase of flowers or a colored mark on a calendar.
