Listener Advisory: In this episode, we talk about some triggering subjects, including loss of a loved one, suicide, and grief through that process.

We love to open up the conversation for these topics but understand this may not be for everyone. Episode 63 of The Positively Living Podcast is about decluttering mentally and physically through grief. 

In this episode of The Positively Living Podcast, I’m talking with Sherry Trentini, sharing the importance of letting go of the weight of grief and providing actionable steps you can take right now to release the pressure you feel as you grieve. 

Sherry and I cover the following topics:

  • Not measuring your grief to others’
  • What parts of mental clutter involve grief and how to declutter it
  • When it’s time to let go of physical items after losing a loved one
  • How we can tap into gratitude to release the weight of grief.

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we’ll experience. Sherry and I talk about our own experiences of losing a loved one in the past and share how we felt letting go of those mental and physical items or ideas over time. I hope this episode offers healing and a sense of peace and understanding to those who have gone through it and for those who will.
