Divorce and Stress
Stress may interfere with your ability to function in your daily life. Many people going through divorce express feelings like “I’m in a fog.” “I don’t know how I can function.” We are not suggesting that these recommendations are easy to implement, after all, divorce brings with it many negative emotions that can put you under duress, moreover ...

Here are some tips for dealing
with Divorce Stress:

  1. Pay attention to your emotional needs: let your feelings out—join a support group, speak with a therapist, share with a trusted friend or join a Bible-based place of worship and make new friends.

  2. Stay active—start or stay with your exercise routine—consider adding a calming and meditative practice such as yoga.

  3. Nurture yourself—get plenty of rest, eat healthy and nutritious foods, make a list of your positive qualities and say them to yourself every day—for example: “I am a good mother/father; I am a loving person; I am attractive.

  4. Give yourself permission to feel and to heal: Emotions are normal—how you handle them is important—be careful not to succumb to drugs or alcohol. This only leads to destructive behavior.

  5. Avoid hasty decisions—when you are living through a stressful situation, any decision or change to your life should be well thought out. Take your time, weigh all the options and consequences.

  6. Have fun ... laugh, play, go out, find new friends, surround yourself with positive people. Find a terrific place to worship.

  7. Forgive yourself ... forgive your spouse ... and move forward.
