How to Make Your Divorce Less Stressful: Part Two
Divorce can cause problems such as stress and anxiety. These problems can lead to a lack of sleep, causing a lack of energy and concentration. Here are a few tips to try and make the process easier, to minimise any impact upon your health.
1. Develop strategies to help you grow stronger
Identify what your strengths and weaknesses are, for example, if you know that you are going to feel lonely, think realistically about how you are going to cope with this. Put a strategy into place. This will help build your confidence, self-esteem and managing your emotions.
2. Managing emotions
The divorce process is difficult and can trigger strong emotions such as grief, fear, anger, resentment, doubt, regret and guilt. Giving yourself the time and space to manage these emotions, along with help and support from family and friends, is essential to moving forward.
3. Accept the reality of the situation
As difficult as it may be, being realistic with yourself is something that will help you achieve a more positive outlook, sooner rather than later. Although it may be painful to accept harsh realities, continuing down a path of denial will only lengthen the recovery process.
4. Have the right people on your side
Divorce is a challenge; mentally, physically and emotionally. One of the most important things you can do, is ensure that you are happy with the people that represent you throughout the process.
