The Mary Mac Show | The Gift of Simplicity

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 57, we discuss how simplifying our surroundings and the way we live our life can lead to a calmer everyday existence while we are working through our grieving process.

So often when we are grieving a significant individual in our lives, we don’t take the time to consider how we can simplify things so we don’t feel so overwhelmed.

In this episode we look at various ways to decrease our tasks and pressure. It helps us to think through this process and minimize our lifestyle so we release additional pressure that is not needed.

A website that I ran across recently helps us to scream out our frustration and anger. Go to Just Scream! A wonderful service where you call in to this telephone number and literally just scream into the phone and hang up. Very cathartic.

The Mary Mac Show | Preparing Yourself For The Holiday Season

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we discuss how to prepare yourself as we encounter the year-end holidays.

No matter which ones you celebrate, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, or many others after a loved one has died, they just don’t feel the same.

If it’s the first holiday season since you have been bereaved, or it’s a few more, trying to feel happy and enjoying the seasons as you did in the past, can be an especially difficult task.

The main thing you need to know is that you don’t have to do all you’ve done in the past.

You can decide on a different path. You can curtail your events and celebrations this year and there is nothing wrong with that.

Your emotional state is different now and you must be sensitive to that and treat yourself with more care.

So listen in to Episode 50 and please be kind to yourself as we move into this season.

And remember to pick up my ebook Holiday Grief: How To Cope With Stress, Anxiety and Depression After a Loved One’s Death right here on my site on the left hand margin.

The Mary Mac Show | Social Challenges II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, we continue to discuss how to help ourselves when we are struggling to face the world and slowly build a new life for ourselves.

We fight to get out more, accept invitations, start to socialize again with family, friends or even meeting new people.

It is much easier to simply curl up on the sofa with a blanket, beverage and hide from the world. And it’s fine to do this for a time.

But long term, this won’t help us.

It’s time to allow ourselves to get out now, build our confidence and be brave…a little bit at a time.

So be kind to yourself and listen in to Episode 47 to learn various ways you can help yourself.
