Has anyone else been feeling a bit low lately? If so, the reason may surprise you. According to writer and grief expert Hope Edelman, many people experience a "dip in functioning" around the one-year anniversary of a trauma or loss. This week marks one year since COVID descended on the U.S., and in today's episode, Karen & Katie chat with Hope about the concept of Pandemic Grief.
The conversation is fascinating; Hope covers how culture in the U.S. over the last 150 years has changed around grief and how the one-year anniversary may be impacting us in different ways than any other trauma in our lives. Huge bonus: She also offers advice on how listeners can deal with and process their grief.
