My Head Knows: But My Heart Still Hurts by Stacey Niedentohl is a self-help guidebook to help readers cope with the loss of their loved ones, enabling them to process the grief constructively during the mourning period. Niedentohl recalls her own experiences with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, remembers how her mother fell victim to Stage IV lung cancer, and utilizes those memories to lay out a comprehensive 30-day journal to help people going through a similar loss. Niedentohl provides readers with a set of mantras to overcome their mourning period and offers them a series of doable daily activities to better preserve the memories of their loved ones. The author also encourages readers to meditate and learn to let go of their grievances to lead fulfilling lives with the best memories of their friends and family.

Anyone who has ever lost a loved one, whether a close friend or family member, will find My Head Knows: But My Heart Still Hurts to be a must-read. Author Stacey Niedentohl's motivational self-help journal is meticulously crafted, with close attention to detail and helpful exercises to assist readers with the grieving process. Under Niedentohl's inspirational Mentorship program, readers will find new ways to remember their long-deceased loved ones and find comfort in their memories. The best aspect of the book is that the lessons provided are easily applicable and accessible to people from all walks of life. I personally found it very helpful and highly recommend it to anyone who might be feeling a bit lost.
