Divorce is a highly emotional and stressful experience. Sometimes a divorce can last more than two years. That is a long time to manage the ups and downs emotionally. And we aren’t even talking about the financial stress during divorce.
To help you survive your divorce in the best way possible, here are some tips:
- Try to keep your routine as close to how it was before the divorce process began. It is important to maintain a sense of continuity for yourself and your kids if you have them.
- Spend some time alone each week. It can be very hard to make time to do this but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Stop by the beach on the way home from work one day and sit for 15 minutes. It can be enough to clear your head. Take that yoga class you’ve been wanting to try or pick up a do-it-yourself DVD to use at home.
- Don’t allow your former spouse to push your buttons. While you can’t control what they do or say you can control what you do or say in response. By allowing yourself to get upset you lose control of what comes out of your mouth. Do yourself a favor and your divorce lawyer a favor and don’t respond to the emotional hijacking.
- Seek out activities for yourself and your children, if there are any, that create a sense of emotional support and well-being. Spending time together will help maintain the bond you have and especially when there is some shared timesharing involved in your divorce.
- Have a team of strong professionals around you. Your divorce lawyer is an important member of your team but don’t forget a financial advisor, a counselor or psychologist, a self-help group meeting, and trusted members of your family.
Take care of yourself during your divorce so you will have the strength and emotional well-being to tackle the tough situations along the way.
