Mental health experts encourage grieving people to take care of themselves both physically and spiritually during a divorce. Divorce is a time to find strength and hope within yourself. Following healthy habits when getting a divorce can help.

Take care of yourself physically:

  • Get enough sleep
  • Eat sensibly
  • Engage in regular exercise
  • Do not use alcohol or drugs to numb the pain of grief or lift your mood artificially

Express your feelings in a tangible or creative way:

  • Write in a journal
  • Garden
  • Learn a new language
  • Get involved in a cause or charitable organization that is important to you

Plan ahead:

  • Be prepared to take an emotional hit on anniversaries, holidays and other life-cycle events that can be particularly challenging
  • Let others know ahead of time that an upcoming event will be challenging for you
