Publisher's Summary

No one can take away your pain - but there is something you can do to grow from it. 

Each time someone passes away, they leave behind an average of five grieving people.

Grief will affect every single one of us at some point in our lives. It’s an inevitable and natural fact of life, yet it is one of the hardest things we will ever go through.

Grief can be debilitating. It takes us unaware, and it can be so raw and painful that we become unable to function, much less move forward and process our feelings.

If you’ve lost a loved one, you might be struggling with a lack of energy and feelings of guilt, powerlessness, and loneliness. You're not alone, but you probably feel it.

Grief isn’t something we can avoid or bargain our way out of. It’s something we have to go through, and there’s no denying that it hurts like hell. But grief doesn’t have to be our enemy.

When we allow ourselves space to process our pain, we can grow kinder and wiser, and we can use our experiences to help others. We will never forget those we’ve lost, and navigating our grief will be a long journey, but life is not over.

In fact, it’s possible to emerge from grief a stronger, better person.

It’s possible to sidestep grief’s distractions and complications - the things that stop us from processing our pain. Those feelings of lethargy and powerlessness are common, but they’re not inevitable: You just need a road map to help you navigate them.

In 10 Habits for Grief and Loss, you’ll be supported through the grieving process as you come to terms with your loss. You’ll discover:

  • Ten habits and mindsets designed to help you not only cope with your loss, but to also emerge stronger 
  • Psychological research to help you understand your reactions, allowing you to see just how normal your current feelings are as you grieve 
  • The reason why 40 percent of first-month grievers display symptoms of major depression, and how you can avoid the same fate 
  • Careful guidance to help you redefine healthy patterns from someone who’s been there themselves 
  • The reason Prince Harry only sought counseling 20 years after the very public death of his mother - and how to address your grief much more quickly 
  • How five key people in your life can help you through your grief, and how to figure out who they are 
  • Why the one thing you probably thought you knew about happiness is wrong 
  • How to avoid being a "stranded islander", no matter how alone you feel 
  • Practical tips to help you navigate the physical symptoms of grief (hint: quality sleep is more than possible)
  • And much more

If you’ve lost a loved one, you may feel like you’re never going to recover. 

As someone who’s lost several of the most important people in his life, Cortez Ranieri knows that feeling, and he has the experience that will help you grow from your pain.

No one can ever take away the love you feel for the person you’ve lost, and your life will never be exactly the same. But your life is not over, and your grief is not in charge. 

With a little guidance, you can find the strength to honor what you’ve lost, and come out stronger on the other side.

Very well-written book ad consequently a brilliant audiobook.
I think it can be used as a "tool." It helps people to overcome difficult situations, being aware that we all react in different ways.
It gives a lot of achievable advice, differently from many other books of this genre.
I reckon the book is suitable for everyone because if you find a good way to be healthy -and this is well explained-, mentally, and physically, you will be grand, whatever the circumstances will be.
Highly recommended audiobook.

A Simple and Easy way to Help with Grief

This book helps solidify that it's okay to feel whatever you are feeling through the process. Grief is very individual.. An easy read, and highly recommended for anyone going through this long season. I will definitely re-read this in the future, as no doubt grief will rear its head again.

Simple yet powerful advice

Simple, but well-written advice and suggestions for those suffering the loss of a loved one. I am really happy I listened to this audio as it eased a lot of pain and struggle. It really gave me a different and fresh perspective on how to handle grief and loss. This audio book also provided scientific research behind journaling for grief, which was super cool to learn. I'm huge on journaling in general to process emotions and feelings, but this piece of information in the book was confirming which I greatly appreciated. While this book is very comprehensive, it's well laid out with an easy to follow approach. I recommend this listen for sure. This is an incredible read that will help you overcome the emotions and feelings of separation, and regain control of your life.

Very useful audiobook!

I found it really beneficial to overcome grief.
It is well organized, straightforward, with various tips for dealing with life-challenging moments.

The advice is what I need from a book like that: Some tips are from common sense (but it is essential to have someone that remembers them!) others are something I would have never thought about.
This is why I recommend this book to other people.

Great

All of us go through loss at some stage in their life. There is no escaping this unfortunately. And if a loved one or a friend passes away, grief sets in. Having a book like this with lots of tips on how to deal with loss is definitely of great help to anyone!

I like the fact the author touches on different aspects of coping with this loss. And what he talks about is definitely true. Eating well in a distressed time like this is not easy but definitely a must. At the same time, getting up and moving your body is crucial in overcoming this loss. Sitting at home and doing nothing is not going to help you get through this grief. I recommend this one!

Wish I had this earlier

There are a few times where I've lost loved ones. It is the worst feeling to have next to physical pain. What's worse than the feeling is how you may choose to cope with loss. Ranieri gives us a nice helpful program for us to cope with loss, being that he's been in the same predicament himself. I know that there are many things here that I could have implemented years ago that could have saved a lot of sadness and grief. If you need help with getting over a loss of someone or something, get this book.

A very good book on a sesitive subjet area

I found the author very tastefully delved into the area of grief. There were many practical takeaways from this book, that I think I will certainly share with people around me. Your chapter on Escape the Victim mentality was very informative. Thank you for writing such an honest and eye-opening book.

WELL written and Audibled, many basics covered

Devon does a good production job on this, my favorite quote from the book was therapists are psychological mercenairies but a friend is a friend for Free. Cortez put together a nice group of topics to cover well.

Very Helpful

This audiobook is probably a gem. It revolves around helping a child to learn using potty on his or her own. This book outlined different tips and tricks and walk us step by step through the whole process and explained to us how potty training can play a role in a child’s growth . This book does not deals about potty training alone, it also address other related concerns such as traveling, sleep training etc. I would recommend this book to all parents that are potty training their children.
