Many people do not think of New Year’s Day as a grief holiday, but for those of us who are grieving, January 1st is not an easy one.

Not only does it represent a new segment in time in which our loved one is not physically present, but the pressure to embark on yet another self-improvement project may cloud out the very real need for self-care and self-compassion.

During this New Year’s Day 2020 Facebook Live Grief Workshop, I want to spend a few moments in time with you to reflect on what you really need, talk about real self-care, and set the tone for the coming year in a way that is mindful, kind, and loving.
