Women are statistically very likely to outlive a male partner. All women, especially older women, should learn how to manage household, maintenance, and financial matters well before such a loss occurs.

These are not morbid activities, just common sense preparation which eases the burden of those left behind. It is surprising how many families and older couples have not dealt with these basic issues.

Keeping fit, eating well and getting proper rest and relaxation are the basic elements of your health.

Go through the exercises in LIFE AFTER LOSS, or THE GRIEF RECOVERY HANDBOOK, or HEALING INTO LIFE AND DEATH.

Practise working with your grief on smaller issues. As Stephen Levine says, you don't go to the gym and start lifting a 500 pound weight. First you get good lifting a five pound weight, then build up slowly.

Acknowledge how devastating the loss is to them. Do not try to console. Such remarks are meaningless and the truth is that the loved one can never be replaced. Also immediately after a death, inconspicuous practical help with meals and housework are sometimes very much needed.

Remember grief is hard work and takes a long time. But the rewards of truly opening to our pain and then letting go of it are many. They include a renewed enthusiasm and keener appreciation for life and a heart with more room for compassion and kindness.

HEALING INTO LIFE AND DEATH, by Stephen Levine (Doubleday, 1987). Highly recommended, this book offers "original techniques of working with pain and grief, and discusses the development of a merciful awareness as a means of healing as well as how to encourage others to do the same."
