EXERCISE AND MOVEMENT

Session 1

Denial is the refusal to accept the facts of the loss, either consciously or unconsciously. The feelings in this stage of denial often protect and help you from feeling too many emotions at one time.

Session 2

During the anger stage of grief, you might start asking questions like “Why me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?”
You could also feel suddenly angry at inanimate objects, strangers, friends, or family members. You might feel angry at life itself.

Session 3

The first stage of grief is a natural reaction that helps you process the loss in your own time. By going numb, you’re giving yourself time to explore at your own pace the changes you’re going through.
