Stressed during divorce? These 3 tips can help

| Mar 28, 2020 | Divorce |

Your stress level is beyond anything you could have imagined because of your divorce. Your spouse has been difficult, and you’re tired.

You find yourself worrying that you might be on the edge of a breakdown. Before you let yourself get to that point, consider using these three tips to get yourself back on track and to reduce stress.

Clear your mind

One good tip when you’re dealing with divorce is to clear your mind. You might have been offended by something that your spouse said or did, or you may be upset about the outcome of today’s negotiating session. Whatever the issue is, make sure you take time to step away. Go for a walk, play a game or so something else that takes your mind off the problem. You’ll be able to refocus when you need to.

Write it all down

If you are significantly stressed about divorce, you’ll have a lot of thoughts going through your mind all the time. It can be exhausting, and you may find that you start missing appointments or forgetting about meetings. Maybe you wanted to ask a question but forgot what it was, or perhaps you needed to note down something that was done that would help your own case. Keep a notebook on you, and write down everything you can. This helps focus your thoughts and relieve the stress of trying to remember it all.

Get support when you need it

Your attorney is there to help you with the legal side of your divorce, but if you need additional support, you may want to consider talking to friends, a counselor or a therapist. If you need support, don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for it.

Coping with divorce isn’t always easy, but with these tips, you’ll be on the right path to doing so.
