The Mary Mac Show | Gift of Simplicity II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 163, we continue to 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 special 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 additional ways to decrease our tasks and pressure. It helps us to think through this process and minimize our lifestyle so we release additional challenges that are not needed.

In Episode 162, we discuss how to simplify our surroundings and the way we live our life so we can lead a calmer everyday existence while we are working through our grieving process.

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 won’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.

If you can review your daily routine, and consider things we can let go of, we will have less struggle.

And when we’re grieving for someone so special, we need extra time to attend to our emotional needs.

Bless you,

The Mary Mac Show | Creating a New You 2023

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 161, we welcome in the New Year and start to clarify what we truly want our life to be like in the future.

In years past we might have been so excited when New Year’s Eve came along and we made plans to attend gatherings and parties with the special people in our lives.

But after a loved one’s death, it becomes hard to look forward to a new year without them.

In this week’s episode, we try to push you, just a little, to start the process of considering with clarity what exactly YOU want in the new year and to make it plain in your journal.

It can take a lot of thought to think through what you believe is best for YOU at this time.

And when you write it down on paper, it becomes more clear so you can determine which would work best for you.

Now you may come up with several options and then put them in priority.

You may not get to all of them by the end of this new year, but that’s perfectly ok.

If you can decide on one option in each of the areas I speak about in this week’s podcast, that will be enough.

But do have one priority for each so you have clarity of what will bring you joy, what will bring more success to your life and what will help you spend time working on you not only concentrating on the death of your loved one.

The sad thing is we have no control over what happened to them and to us. We only have control of how we react.

So take the time to concentrate on yourself this week and consider what’s best for your 2023!

We will always remember them, love them, and yes, to varying degrees grief for them. But that doesn’t mean we need to stay stuck.

Blessings to You.

Let me know how it’s going!

Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:

If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!

For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.

Visit Julie’s EFT episodes on grief and she will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.

Here are some meditation music to help you rest.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.

I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.

The Mary Mac Show | New Year For You

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 109, we look at the new year, what we have planned for ourselves and how to focus on the positive in our lives even though we are still grieving.

When the New Year approaches we tend to take stock of the last year and consider new goals that will serve us, especially when we are grieving.

In this episode, we journal through each area of our lives, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, spiritual, financial and more so we can look at what we truly want in our lives.

Then we get to start moving toward those goals.

And, yes, even when we are hurting.

Because if we don’t have something to look forward to, we will sink into the blues and I don’t want that for you.

Take the time to listen in and take the time to set a plan for 2022.

The Mary Mac Show | New Year New You

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 56, we take a close look at what we would like to see happen in this coming year and what we might do differently to bring more joy into our lives.

When the New Year approaches we tend to take stock of the last year and consider new goals that will serve us, especially when we are grieving.

Yes, many times we think ‘who cares’ since we feel so blue without our special loved one.

But each of us has a choice to stay stuck or to venture into something new that can bring us joy, help us learn something or meet new people.

Take the time to listen in and take the time to set a plan for 2021.
