Meditation. We’ve written a complete guide on grieving and meditation, which you can check out here. But in short, meditation allows you to give space and time to your emotions, checking in on how you are really feeling. It takes practice, but eventually, letting yourself feel exactly as you feel can be the one of the most healthy experiences to have in the grieving process.

Exercise. The mind and body are connected. Physical activity helps keep you healthy, and also prepares you to cope better emotionally. Ways to take care of one's physical health and combat stress and fatigue include getting plenty of sleep, eating healthy and exercising. 

Spending time with nature can be soothing and healing. You can do any physical activity that you have enjoyed in the past, or try a new one. Finally, doing the activity with others can be even more helpful.

Journaling. Journaling during your grief experience can help you express your feelings and understand the importance of your loss. If you wish you could have told the person something before he/she died, consider writing a letter to the deceased person. Afterward, you can bury it, destroy it, keep itβ€”whatever feels right to you.
