Cherished Traditions

A ritual you can initiate following the loss of a loved one to process grief and also honor your loved one, is to carry on a cherished tradition of theirs. This tradition can be something benevolent such as continuing to make annual contributions to a charity your loved one supported. This tradition can be something leisurely such as watching a program your loved one regularly watched. This tradition can also be something routine, such as washing a car or watering plants at the same time your loved one used to. While in the midst of carrying on this tradition, remind yourself of the joy your loved one experienced in these moments, and feel gratitude for this joy experienced by your loved one.
