  • Be sure you’re getting adequate sleep. It’s easy to slip into problematic sleep patterns during the grieving process, which can make you feel more stressed and depressed.
  • Stick to a balanced diet of lean protein, whole grains, and lots of fruit and veggies. Avoid the temptation to self-medicate your feelings with junk food, or you’ll feel sluggish later.
  • Make time for low-impact exercise, like a brisk walk or yoga for beginners, to combat depression and anxiety.
  • Spend some time doing a meditative activity to help clear your head. You might try mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques or writing in a positive affirmations journal.
