Russell Brand may be best known for his comedy and his acting, but lately his focus has been pretty different.
From his recent book about addiction (Recovery) to his ongoing Under the Skin podcast, Brand has been channelling a lot of energy into self-help and a deeper exploration of topics that range from psychology and spirituality to politics and society.

His latest video is about grief. In the short clip below, Brand speaks to the camera about his own experience with grief, his advice on ways to deal with it, and his thoughts about the role it plays in our lives.
"When someone is gone someone is gone and they have to live on in your memory of them and the rituals that you create around them," says Brand.
"Think of the things that they loved, think of the things that they would have you do an do them, commemorate them.
"Allow them to live on in the choices that you make, in the way that you live lovingly, in the way that they would have you do."
