How Can I Deal With Stress During a Divorce?

Among all the practical considerations associated with divorce, many people also experience a great deal of stress. This stress can be caused by the failure of the marriage, inadequacies the person may feel, or worries about money. While recovering from a divorce can be quite difficult for couples, there are steps you can take to mitigate stress and find your footing again.

Live About recommends making a change to your expectations at the outset. This is especially important when it comes to your ex-spouse. Many people have a hard time relinquishing control in this case, which can lead to much consternation when your ex acts in ways you find fault with. Understand that you no longer have control over this person’s thoughts or actions and that your efforts are best directed towards those things you can control.

This includes taking steps towards self-care. Self-care involves a number of aspects, including taking care of yourself physically, taking time to enjoy hobbies and interests, and spending time with friends and family that offer unconditional support. When you feel good inside and out, you’re better equipped to cope with stress in a healthy way. Additionally, doing things you love will take your mind off the divorce and related aspects for a period of time.

When it comes to major decisions, try to give yourself some time. Deciding on things like changing jobs or homes while under immense pressure can lead to poor decision-making. If you must make a decision soon, look to trusted loved ones for their input. They will be able to look at the issue objectively and offer unbiased advice on how to proceed. When it comes to legal matters involving child custody, rely on the guidance of your legal team before acting rashly.
