There is no harder time in a person’s life than right after they lose someone that they love. There is nothing anyone can say or do to make your loved one come back, though one of the best things you can do for yourself is to get away for a bit and treat yourself to a holiday. Once the funeral is over and all the necessary arrangements for everything else are taken care of, it’ll be good for you to have a break and be able to just spend some time on your own. The following are some of the ways that going on a holiday can help you deal with loss.
A Change Of Scenery
No doubt every little thing will be reminding you of your lost loved one, so the best thing you can do is leave it all behind for a little while and go somewhere that is totally different. Somewhere with lots of natural beauty is a good idea and sometimes you can even get good deals on monthly accommodation. Noosa and other places on the Sunshine Coast are the perfect place to have everything you need while being surrounded by a fantastic natural setting, and whether you go to Sunshine Beach, Little Cove or Noosa, accommodation here comes in all types so you are sure to find the perfect place to relax and get your head together.
It is great to have lots of people around that care about you, though it can get a little overwhelming to be constantly bumping into people who are offering their condolences. Getting away will mean you can just deal with your own grief rather than have to help deal with everyone else’s, so you will finally have the time and space to get to a good place in your own head. Whether you are walking through a National Park or just staring at the ocean, you’ll feel way more relaxed knowing that people here don’t look at you as the person who just lost a loved one.
Locking yourself inside your home is not a healthy way to deal with loss; you need to be making sure that you are getting exercise and stimulation so that you don’t fall into depression. Going on a holiday will provide you with lots of easy ways to be getting out on walks or for morning swims and getting some of that stress and grief out of your body. As hard as it is to think about, you need to continue on with your life, so making sure you don’t just fade away is obviously very important. Just take it gently.
Time To Talk
Having some time to yourself will be a huge relief, though you may want to have a close friend join you on your restorative journey once you’ve had some time on your own. This will give you a good opportunity to talk about how you feel and to feel less like you are floating and disconnected. So consider having the second part of your holiday with a friend and start slowly transitioning into a new phase of your life."
