Practicing Self Care During and After Your Divorce

Posted on in Divorce

Palatine divorce attorneyDivorce can be a financially draining process, but it can also take an emotional toll. It takes a long time for a couple to build a life together, and no matter how many problems you and your spouse have, divorce is the end of that relationship. No matter who initiates the divorce, the emotional and physical separation is tough on both parties. Here are some tips for taking care of yourself while going through a divorce and after the divorce process has been completed: 

  • Follow a Routine - Having consistency during this time of uncertainty will help you carry on. Even though your marriage is officially ending, it is important to keep living your life and participating in activities you enjoy. Do not stop going to your book club or getting drinks with friends after work on Fridays. The only thing that has changed is your relationship status. 
  • Stay Healthy - If you do not already exercise regularly, now is the perfect time to start. Physical activity improves your mood and keeps your body strong. Even if it is just a walk around the block, keeping your blood flowing can help lift your spirits. Do not forget to keep feeding your body good things, too. There is nothing wrong with comfort food, but do not let cheesy and greasy foods become the majority of what you are eating. 
  • Be Kind to Yourself - It is very easy to blame yourself for the end of your marriage, but you are not the only reason for the divorce. People change over time, and sometimes their goals do not align with those changes. It is completely normal to have ups and downs in a relationship, but if the downs are bad enough, it is okay to admit that a divorce was the best option for the both of you. 
  • Reflect - Even though your breakup has a name with a capital “D,” at the end of the day it is still a breakup. Take time to mourn the relationship. It is sad that your marriage ended, and it is perfectly acceptable to feel that way. Think about some of the positive things that can come from your divorce, like a chance for a fresh start. For example, you now have more time to spend with your friends or start a new hobby
