Get very cozy and comfortable on your bed or chair. Bring a pillow, blanket or pet to snuggle for comfort.
Take 5 or 6 deep belly breaths. By the time you get to the 6th breath, you should feel much more relaxed. As you breathe, try to notice the chair or bed against your body. Deep belly breathing is a skill that helps us move through our core emotions.
Bring into your mind the loss you have experienced that resulted in your sadness
Notice what changes in your body. Scan your body from head to toe as you breathe, and see if you can find the sensations of sadness in your body.
Stay with the sensations of sadness and breathe gently. You might start to feel the wave of sadness moving or building. Just deep belly breathe through it, noticing the sensations moving through you.
Ride the wave of sadness, stay with it, allow yourself to cry until it is over and the wave ends. Stay breathing until you feel calmer.
When you're ready to move again and continue with your day/ night, remember to treat yourself kindly and gently, like you would care for someone you loved.
