Pre-Plan Well In Advance
There are many other benefits to pre-planning a funeral , and thinking about these benefits can help you manage stress levels as you plan. First, pre-planning eliminates the time pressure of planning a funeral following the death of a loved one. It also allows you and your family to focus on mourning and healing after the death of a loved one, rather than having to make last-minute arrangements. Lastly, pre-planning also saves a great deal of money, as many people tend to make emotionally motivated decisions when making funeral arrangements at the eleventh hour.
Take Care of Yourself
It’s not easy planning a funeral, so it’s important to practice self-care. To stay healthy and avoid emotional burnout, be sure to exercise, eat right, and get plenty of sleep. Some people find it helpful to socialize, while others prefer to be alone. Listen to your emotional needs, and ask friends, family, spiritual leaders, or a counselor if you need support.
Check Out the Funeral Home Thoroughly
Get price lists from each funeral home that you visit, and use this information to draft a budget. Make sure each funeral home has a license and decent reviews on sites like Google and Yelp. If you arrange and pay for services in advance, save copies of the receipts and other documentation and keep them in a safe place that will be available to loved ones.
