    Nine Suggestions for Living Well in a Season of Grief

    Nine Suggestions for Living Well in a Season of Grief

    Thank you, friends, for listening to the Pondering Purple podcast. This is a bit of a different episode. I usually cover topics that offer information, insight and inspiration for those who love MKs and those who are MKs. But with COVID-19 upending our world, my Nine Suggestions for Living Well in a Season of Grief will apply to a much broader audience. Grief in its many forms is everywhere these days.



    So...most of this episode will be applicable to anyone who is going through a period of sadness and upheaval. And when we come to the short segment in which I speak to just MKs, I'll let you know exactly how far to skip ahead if you're not in that community.



    Today's episode is based on an article by the same name: Nine Tips for MKs in a Season of Grief. The segment on "shelving" the grief was inspired by the teaching of Family Resilience Coach, Becky Matchullis (beckymatchullis.com).



    If you're a student whose school year has been abbreviated and/or graduation cancelled, you might also be interested in this previous episode: The Emotional Impact of Campus Closures.



    This is the list of MK- and TCK-aware international mental health professionals I mention in the episode.

    BONUS EPISODE: The Emotional Impact of Campus Closures

    Thank you, friends, for clicking on this bonus episode of the Pondering Purple podcast, a source of information, insight and inspiration for those who love MKs and those who are MKs. COVID-19 and the closing of schools around the world--which have upended the lives of so many young people--prompted me to address how to love them well in this season of loss and why MKs and TCKs might feel the upheaval more acutely than others.
