Effective Ways to Reduce Stress during Divorce

Divorce is a time of uncertainty and substantial change. Whether you’ve been married 20 years or haven’t even celebrated your one-year anniversary, it’s going to be a trying process. To make it through to the other side, you must reduce stress. Here are 5 easy ways to start feeling better as you move through the divorce process.

  • Give yourself time: Take time to breathe and find your center. Don’t feel like you have to have everything together right away. Untangling from a relationship takes time.
  • Nurture friendships: Rely on your friends and accept their help. Too often, people push others away because they don’t want to be a burden. Your friends are here to love and support you.
  • Explore new interests: Get your mind refocused on something other than the pain and stress. What is something you’ve always wanted to do? Find a new hobby or rediscover an old one.
  • Create a routine: There’s comfort in routine. During divorce, you must find a new routine. What does that look like for you?
  • Avoid power struggles: Limit your communication with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Let your attorney handle this and you focus on moving forward with your life.

At the Law Offices of Steven C. Benke, we want to make this time for our clients as stress-free as possible. If you’re considering divorce proceedings, it’s important to work with family law attorneys who understand what an emotional time this is for you. Divorce is so much more than a legal matter.
