1. BREATH - Slowly and deeply. Inhale to a count of four, hold for a count of 2, exhale for a count of 6. Repeat this 10 times and focus on nothing but your breath. As other thoughts start to creep into your conscious return your focus to your breathing.
2. BE AWARE of your feelings and don't try to suppress them. When it comes to grief everyone is on their own journey, and no two journeys are alike. Whatever feelings are coming up are perfectly normal and part of the process. Go with it, scream, cry, shout, laugh do what YOU need to do but just don't keep those feelings locked inside.
3. START A GRIEF JOURNAL - Writing down your thoughts and feelings can be as good as talking them over. You could also try writing a letter or Mothers Day card to your mum.
