Take care of yourself
An important help in the struggle for survival may be turning to yourself, analyzing what is happening to you. Indeed, after the incident increases the risk of getting sick or becoming a victim of an accident. According to the results of one study, over the year of hard feelings, the health of 67 percent of widowed women is deteriorating. There is reason to believe that mortality among those who have lost a spouse is higher. Studies in several California medical centers have shown that the immune system of widowed women suffers, which means an increased risk of getting sick.
That is why it is so important to keep a balanced diet and exercise, even if you didn’t have such a habit before. Studies have shown that physical exercise not only improves health, but also improves mood.
“I did the exercises for the reason that, left with two children, I was terribly afraid of getting sick,” explains Melissa. Every day I rode a bicycle, at 10 o'clock in the evening I jumped over the rope. I know that it saved me, I rarely get sick. "
She also always remembered the words of her friend, whose husband died in Vietnam, about the need to be very careful, especially when doing work associated with danger, for example when using a ladder.
“When you lose someone, you are on the verge of death. You stop being cautious, notes Dr. Marion Frank. You need to be careful and think: “Is it reasonable what I do? Because you may have a habit of not taking care of yourself. ”
