Stress relief tips for during and after a divorce

When you are starting the divorce process, it can seem like a never-ending cycle of stress and negative emotions. However, many people also find that once the dust has settled, there is a newfound excitement over their new life and getting a chance to start over. One of the most important things you can do for yourself during this time — aside from ensuring you have knowledgeable legal representation — is to take time to get to know yourself again and spend time with supportive family and friends.

Just like when you got married, it often seems like everyone has an opinion and advice on what you should do during your divorce. Everyone has a story about what did or did not work for someone they knew or how the courts decided who gets to keep the house. It's important to remember that each divorce is unique, and no one knows the exact details of your situation. Surrounding yourself with positive, supportive people can help you remember that you are not alone during this time.

Many people also underestimate the time and legal paperwork involved in a divorce, especially if there is a disagreement about property division or child custody. Divorce is a fairly lengthy process, and it's important to start taking time for yourself as soon as possible instead of waiting for everything to be finalized. Take some time to enjoy old hobbies or even curl up on the couch and watch some of your favorite movies. Stress relief and downtime is a crucial part of making it through the divorce process unscathed.

While the months and years after a divorce can be as revitalizing as they are challenging, you first have to get through the property division settlement and the final paperwork. Get your questions answered and find out more about what to expect during and after the divorce process when you talk with a family law attorney.
