The "10 Essentials"
Carrying the 10 Essentials while hiking in the woods, even for a short day hike, is wise and develops into good habits. Being aware of what one is carrying ensures having options if the hike does not go as planned.
Following a death, we can look at these same 10 Essentials as a guide in our journey on a grief trail that can be unpredictable at times and unexpected with the different turns.
The 10 Essentials were developed by Dianne D. Castellano, LCSW and Alive Grief Support.
