With evidenced based therapies, we find the root of the problem together to implement solutions. We all face crises, transitions, or disorders at some time.

Personally in my experience, this depends much on the loss in question, and also my feelings on any given day. If it the loss of a loved one, I personally try to be mindful, and grateful, for the time we were able to spend together, and the joy we brought to each other's lives. I have also found that journaling about my feelings can help me to cope with loss on a daily basis. Hope this helps you.
It can affect people differently not everyone is the same. There is no one fits all answer. If you are finding that you are having diffculties, talk with someone you love or trust. If you find that isn't helpful you can try to talking to a counselor or therapist to help you through your thoughts and help you with the coping skills that you may need.
Depending on the kind of loss it may effect the person in different ways. No matter what kind of loss it is it can be hard to cope with it and there is no time frame for how long the person will grieve for the loss. In my case, I feel sad and lonely most of the times and many times I cry for the loss I have experienced. My coping strategy includes talking to someone about my feelings, diverting my mind, telling myself that crying would not make things any better and I count my blessings.
My thoughts are that when you experience loss of any kind you experience a sense of grief. People are affected by grief in many different ways and there is no right or wrong way. I believe that one of the best ways is to keep talking about how you are feeling. Keep talking and express what it is that you are feeling.
Yes loss does effect me on a daily basis. I cope in different ways each day. Sometimes it is just reminding myself the ones I have lost would rather see me smile than cry and other times it is to play music or go on a run. It all depends on the day and situation.
Loss effects me a lot as I have lost 2 of the closest people in my life one was my grandad who died of cancer he always understood me and was there for me, just like I was for him when he got cancer. The second was one of my dogs I had lived with my two dogs since I was born so loosing one was hard enough without my grandad dying as well a math before. It effects me so much that I go and sit in my room for over an hour a day sometimes crying about it if I had nothing to do that day and not anyone to help me. I coped by having someone to talk to when I'm upset.
I have a tip for you,Give yourself a deadline for example a week to talk about your emotions and how you feel and also during this deadline, you have to let out all of your emotions, never keep anything inside you, let it out, if it is crying, cry. After the deadline, you have to stop talking about it and stop letting out your emotions. You can choose a deadline of your choice, a month, week etc
Ultimately you'll stop getting attached to things ... you'll loose interest in whatever things that could interest you coz' you know that ain't gonna last. How you gonna cope up with that depends on what kinda person you are.
Loss does not effect me to much on a daily basis, but when it does occur, I usually need to talk to someone, or write in my journal.
Loss can affect you on a daily basis but having you think of the moment after it has happened and you grieve on it over and over on it at work as well and you can cope with it by using coping skills by taking a step back from a task if necessary, talking to a co worker or someone you trust about it and other ways too.
Loss of a loved one recently made me much stronger and wiser to take on daily life actually. It refocused my perspective on life and a lot of wisdom came from it despite the tragedy. It also gave me greater empathy for people experiencing the same and allowed me to walk alongside someone grieving today. Coping is tough but I lean a lot on my friends, network of acquaintances and family! It does get much better over time.
