    The Wall Street Journal reported that the US lost $75 billion due to grief in the workplace as a result of accidents, loss of productivity, and absenteeism.  There are over 50 million people grieving at any given time. 

    ·         “The cost of suffering from grief is staggering: Joy, health, vitality, relationships, creativity, productivity, clarity and prosperity all suffer.” Aurora Winter, The Grief Academy

    Wrong thinking about grief has led to unneeded suffering, myths and misconceptions.  Unresolved grief can manifest as fear, insecurity, overreacting to situations, a sinking feeling, and a preference for solitude.  Chronic stress from grief can prematurely age your cells by a decade.  It can even trigger death.

    These statistics CAN be improved.

    As a grief and RELATIONSHIP coach, I see the struggles a griever goes through in addition to the grief from the death of their loved one.  Marriages are strained.  Parent/child relationships are hindered.   Family members become estranged.  In-Laws become Outlaws.  Work, employer/employee, and client relationships are challenged.  Anger, greed, lowered ability to understand and empathize others, fatigue, frustration all adds to the stress of it all.

    Having a grief and relationship coach provides an outlet and sounding board that validates as well as offers an unbiased alternative perspective aiding in coping with and mending these relationships.  All in all, stress is reduced, heaviness is lifted, toxic thoughts are eliminated, and the sense of well being and joy is restored.

    If you or someone you know is struggling…. you are not alone.  Reach out for help today.  You deserve peace and happiness.
