A divorce is one of the most stressful events in many people’s lives. Studies show that stress from a divorce can reach the heights of emotion often seen when someone passes away.
But we are often asked, “Will I be able to settle my emotions and reduce my triggers in the long run?”
If you utilize the collaborative divorce process instead of a litigated, court-controlled divorce, then the answer is YES!
Here are some tips we share with our clients on how to work through the emotions and triggers divorce often brings:
- Be kind to yourself – this is a challenging and complex situation to work through
- Develop a self-care plan – it can be as simple as taking a 10-minute break to use a deep breathing plan
- Let the little things go – now is not the time to focus on the micro details
- Work with a mental health specialist (divorce coach) on your collaborative divorce team to work through the emotions divorce is bringing to the surface
- Watch who you take advice from – while well-meaning – family and friends can often steer you in the wrong direction
- Journal – not to write a published novel, but to get your feelings out – it is emotionally freeing
