When a loved one passes away, and you are grieving that loss, you may struggle to follow your regular routine when it comes to eating, sleeping or doing all the things you regularly do. In fact, this is the time when you need to make various important decisions including how to plan the funeral service, memorial ceremony etc.
While you may go through the motions in a normal manner, the irregularity in your routine can affect your physical and mental health. You may simply grab unhealthy foods just because you need to feed your stomach, and may fail to look after your health. This can have repercussions on your health which is why it becomes very necessary to make healthy choices while grieving.
Here are some aspects to keep in mind:
Make it a point to choose healthy foods when you are grieving. This will give you the energy you need to handle all your responsibilities in a better way, without affecting your health.
Make sure that you stock up on healthy foods such as fresh veggies and fruits. This will help you avoid snacking on healthy items and reaching for processed foods.
Stay away from caffeinated beverages such as coffee or tea and veer towards plain water or fresh juices instead.
It's also a good idea to get out into the fresh air. A short jog or even a walk can help you feel a little energetic, even at a time you are grieving.
Making healthy food choices and following at least a basic exercise routine can help you recover faster from your grief. You would have the energy to handle all the stress and strain of the loss you have faced, in a better way.
