Giving Yourself Help

Divorce is one of the most challenging things a person can go through. It’s full of pain, stress, and heartache. But it’s also a time when self-care is more important than ever. Here are some ways to practice self-care during your divorce.

Eating Healthy

Eating healthy is a simple way to take care of yourself during your divorce. When you’re stressed out, eating unhealthy foods can only make things worse. Instead, try to eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean protein. This will help clear your mind and keep your energy up.


Exercising is another excellent way to manage stress during a divorce. It can help release negative energy and emotions, and it can also improve your mood. Try to exercise for at least 30 minutes each day, whether going for a walk, running, or hitting the gym.


Meditating can be a great way to relax and de-stress during a divorce. There are various types of meditation, so choose the method that works best for you. If you need help figuring out where to start, try downloading an app or checking out a website like Headspace or

Spending Time with Friends and Family

Spending time with friends and family is another great way to de-stress during a divorce. They can provide emotional support and a listening ear, which can be very helpful during this time. Plus, spending time with loved ones can help take your mind off the legal process.

Looking After Yourself

Above all, remember to look after yourself during your divorce. Make sure you get enough sleep, take breaks when needed, and don’t overextend yourself. Taking care of yourself will help you manage stress better and make it through this difficult time stronger than ever.
