Grief Day By Day: Simple Practices and Daily Guidance for Living with LossGrief Day By Day: Simple Practices and Daily Guidance for Living with Loss by Jan Warner

4 stars

Grief Day By Day is a self-help advice book. Written by Jan who lost her own husband, she uses her own journey through grief to help others.

The book has fifty-two theme weeks with exercises and quotes, and is a book to dip into at the reader’s own pace.

I liked the background information; Jan’s husband was a recovering alcoholic, but was always supportive to other drunks and addicts. Because of this, Jan was inspired to make herself available for other grieving people. She created a facebook group called ’Grief Speaks Out’ and it has more than 2.5 million followers. Grief comes in so many forms and everyone’s path through it is different;  Jan’s book offers readers help they might need in a gentle and relaxed format.

Book description

Grief is complex. It is ever changing and may come to us differently on any given day. Grief Day by Day offers reflections and practices that address the day-to-day feelings that accompany the ever changing process of grief.

In Grief Day by Day, Jan Warner draws on her own extensive experience and the experiences of the 2 million followers on her Grief Speaks Out Facebook page to offer hope in its most practical form. This book does not look to offer a solution to grief. Rather, it provides supportive, useful guidance to help you create a life in which peace, and even gratitude, can coexist with your grief.

Inside the pages of Grief Day by Day you’ll find:

  • 365 Daily Reflections that include quotes, meditations, and other musings on grief
  • Weekly Themes that capture common feelings and experiences such as: Loneliness, Things Left Unsaid, Unhealthy Coping Mechanisms, Guilt, and Intimacy
  • 52 Healing Exercises that help you process your feelings at the end of each week and develop skills for coping with grief as it arises

There is no “right way” to grieve, and there is no right way to use this book. Whether you follow it page by page, or select that which seems most relevant to you at the moment, how you use this book is less important than why you are using it. You’re using this book because you have chosen to honor your experience, to make a home for your grief, and to find a new way of living on the bridge between loss and life.
