Self-Care Tips When Going Through a Divorce

Chalkboard with self care o'clock on it

When you find yourself going through the divorce process, you often put yourself at the bottom of the list, draining your energy from you every day. It is important to take care of yourself both physically and emotionally.

Here are some simple ideas we share with our clients on how to add self-care needs to the top of their list:

Set aside time for yourself: Even if it’s just five minutes a day, make it a priority to take a break and focus on your wellbeing.

Keep a journal: Writing down your thoughts and emotions can be incredibly therapeutic.

Engage in physical exercise: Whether it’s going to the gym, going for a run, or participating in other activities that raise your heart rate, physical exercise releases endorphins that can help reduce anxiety and stress levels.

Seek support from others: Talking to trusted friends, family members, or a therapist can help you clear your thoughts and gain clarity without being overwhelmed by emotions.

Practicing self-care is crucial during separation as it provides you with the necessary support and nourishment to navigate this difficult period. You can prepare for the next chapter of your life by taking care of yourself.
