Grief Day by Day
Simple Practices and Daily Guidance for Living With Loss
Many have called Grief Day By Day their true companion. Whether the death of your loved one happened today or many years ago your grief can still feel new. When my husband died I thought I will feel sad and miss him very much. I never expected to feel totally annihilated, as if I had also died. Every day since his death has been a rediscovery or who I am and a rebuilding of my life. My goal was never to get over it but rather to find ways to be fully alive with grief. Grief Day by Day tells my story and is also a collection quotes, musings, reflections and practical exercises, that are tied together by a weekly theme, allowing you to find support no matter what you are feeling. Topics like loneliness, grief attacks, exhaustion, despair, and suicide are balance with resting places such as hope, love, music, and beauty. It is also a good conversation starter for someone who is reluctant to talk about grief.
365 Daily reflections and quotes: My wisdom but also the wisdom of many others. A year’s worth of readings that can be read in order or dipped into to find support no matter what you are searching for. These reflections are divided into weekly themes
52 Healing exercises (one for each theme) ―Discover activities that help you process your feelings and learn skills for the gentling down of grief.

"This is a beautiful book. Grief is a deeply personal and totally universal human experience. You will feel connected to humanity, comforted, and uplifted reading these poignant quotations and stories (including some of the author’s own struggles). Even if you are fortunate enough not to be living with loss and pain, this book will help you reach out to anyone grieving with greater understanding, compassion, and love."―Hayley Mills, award-winning actor in film and on stage
"This is quite literally a shattering book: it takes in both hands and smashes one of the most pernicious of our modern myths - that grief is an aberrant state, properly and speedily to be put away. It instead explores the idea of grief as a part of life. Thus repositioned, grief can be acknowledged as one (but only one) enduring element of the mourner’s identity. It’s a claim the author is too modest to make, but Grief Day by Day surely speaks to anyone having in some other way to get to grips with the ramifications of their own mortality. I read it with gratitude and humility."―Sarah Gristwood, best-selling author, historian, and commentator on the British royal family
"Jan Warner’s personal experience of grief has left her with profound wisdom about how to cope with this most painful―but most human―aspect of life. With Grief Day by Day, she has crafted a poignant and practical guide on how to approach and even learn from grief. Jan asserts that while none of us can totally escape grief, we can grow from the experience of coming to terms with our own pain and suffering."―Ferne Pearlstein, Director of The Last Laugh
"In Grief Day by Day, Jan Warner, founder of Grief Speaks Out, shares guidance and practical advice for living with loss. It is worth every blessed penny, because you will be keeping this life-changing book around for a long time."―Karen Hager, Intuitive Guide and Psychic Channel; host of "Out of the Fog"
"As a result of her grief over losing her wonderful husband, Artie, Jan Warner created Grief Speaks Out, now a flourishing community of over 2 million people worldwide. In Grief Day by Day, Jan packs her wisdom into a series of practices and guidance for those who know what it means to grieve. The book honors grief in its darkest forms, but also offers resting places, such as hope, faith, beauty, and music."―Kevin Allison, storyteller and host of the "Risk!" podcast
"Grief visits us all. How we respond to it can determine whether it stops us from living or deepens our humanness. Grief Day by Day is both a guidebook and a companion to anyone who finds themselves knee deep in one of life's most harsh realities. I am so grateful that Jan Warner found a way to give voice, through her experience of grief, to create this gift to the rest of us."―Doug O'Brien, Center for NLP & Hypnosis
