Grieving and coping with a loss while still having to work do NOT mix, amirite? This can be so, so difficult, so we’re getting into it and talking about it today.

Having to continue showing up at our job as we’re going through a loss is by far one of the most physically and emotionally taxing things that someone grieving has to go through.

We might not have the option to stop working as we need to support ourselves or our family, but trying to do our work effectively and be a (somewhat) fully functioning human being can be one of the most uncomfortable, distracting, and overwhelming things we must endure. Meanwhile, your world is crumbling around you.

In this episode, we will:

  • Chat about and validate how difficult it can be to continue working while grieving a loss (whether we’re in the process of loss, or it already happened)
  • What this experience can look and feel like.
  • Chat about ways to cope as you journey through this emotionally taxing time.

NOTE: Even if coping with a loss at work isn’t relevant to you right now, I hope you tune in because you might be able to apply some of this episode to your grieving journey—especially if you’re feeling overwhelmed with balancing your grief and daily demands, whatever they may be.
