Grief and Organization Challenges

“Since Fred died, I just can’t get organized.”  The mourning process takes so much physical and emotional effort and affects the way the human brain processes information.

When there is a profound sense of loss over the death of a loved one, a sudden life change or even a change in physical status, change occurs. It is if the individual cannot re-balance the parts of life that were once taken for granted.

Part of the re-balance challenges come in the area of making decisions, time awareness and management, dealing with unfamiliar and plentiful documents, new roles and responsibilities, and the list goes on and on.

So much change. So little energy to deal with it. Clutter mounts. Depression sets in.

What can you do? Get help from understanding family and friends that will support the needed changes in your life. Professional organizers have experience and training that will help you address the organization issues that confront you during the grief process.

What advice do you have for others whose organizational challenges are working overtime during the grief process? We would like to hear your perspective.
