Even if you were the one to initiate it, it's very stressful to go through the legal process of separation and divorce. Emotions run high and you may feel totally overwhelmed at times. These tips should help keep you mentally and physically healthy during the process.
A healthy diet, regular exercise and good sleep patterns will help you cope with the tensions and problems. The proceedings can bring out the beast in anyone but badmouthing an ex, especially nasty comments in front of your children, may only hurt you.
Keep up friendships you had before the divorce proceedings. Friends will help you get through the bad days and keep you from feeling isolated. A new hobby, club or focus will keep your mind engaged in something positive.
It's also important to stay updated on how your case is coming along with your attorney. This way you can avoid unpleasant surprises before, during or after your divorce.
