HEALTHY HEALING

A Guide to Working Out Grief Using the Power of Exercise and Endorphins

My new book, Healthy Healing, which stems from my own personal experience of loss, provides a unique plan that uses the power of exercise to help anyone work through grief.

At age thirty-six, I lost my husband in a tragic plane accident. I was left a widow and mother of two young children. During this difficult time (and to my surprise), I found solace and hope in the unlikeliest of places: exercise. Now, it’s my goal to help others coping with great pain to rediscover happiness by strengthening body, mind, and spirit through fitness.

Healthy Healing isn’t just an exercise and nutrition plan, it is a guide to moving forward, and feeling better in the midst of grief. It’s common to shut down in the face of overwhelming loss but the truth is focusing on your health may be the best thing you can do, for yourself and the people you love. Not only will strengthening your body give you the physical stamina to fight off depression and despair, exercise produces endorphins that make you feel good, at a time when you need it most. Exercise also helps you overcome sleep problems—a common side effect of trauma and sudden loss. In addition, proper nutrition boosts immunity when your system is at its weakest.

Part exercise program, nutrition guide, and compassionate companion, Healthy Healing addresses the physical, mental, and emotional effects of grief with practical advice and actionable inspiration.
