Its hard loosing a loved one. You either don't have enough time to eat properly and record or your so out of it that you turn to comfort food and make poor food choices. I recently loss family and here are a few things that helped me avert damage.
1 Never leave home without a healthy packed lunch. You never know what you may be required to do while out or entertaining family members. 2 Instead of eating for comfort let the memories comfort you. Do something that they used to do in honor of them. My coucin had cancer so I'm running a 5k RIP.

Surround Yourself with Positive People and Actions
We cannot choose our families, but we can choose HOW we deal with our family members with positive attitude and words. If family members are negative and give you negative feedback about anything in your life--turn the negatives into a positive by either NOT responding to the negative OR by saying, "I understand how you feel" and leave it at that. Family members may not provide positive feedback, but you can be proud of all your accomplishments--small or big changes.
YOU know what you have accomplished, and it is not necessary to react or respond to negativity no matter who is spewing it out negativity. Often, "Silence is golden" can be a positive when it comes to families. Love them and ignore their negativity. 104
