Remember to practice good self-care during divorce

On Behalf of | Mar 29, 2024 | DIVORCE - High-Asset Divorce

If you are splitting from your spouse, you can be left feeling at a loose end. Going through a divorce can be one of the hardest things couples can do. In the throes of the high emotions divorce often brings, it can be challenging to remember to take the time to care for yourself.

Now is the time to take especially good care of yourself. You need to recharge your batteries so you have the strength to strategize to try to get the best possible outcome in your divorce settlement. Below are some suggestions for good self-care during your divorce.

Take small steps

You don’t have to change your life (or your lifestyle) overnight. But pick one area where you can do something healthy for yourself. Start walking, even if it’s just a block. Take up that hobby that you gave short shrift to during the marriage. Enroll in a course or spend a weekend being pampered at a relaxing spa.

Eat healthfully and get plenty of rest

Especially when you are under stress, it is important to eat healthy foods and sleep regularly. If you have lost your appetite or toss and turn all night, it might be a good idea to share your concerns with your physician.

Rights and responsibilities in a California divorce

Perhaps the best way to protect yourself and your future when divorcing your spouse is to learn more about the California family laws that govern divorce, child custody and property settlements. Doing so might leave you in a better position to move ahead with your post-divorce life once the dust has settled on your marriage.
