Ending a marriage can bring up hard feelings, and it can interfere with daily life in different ways. Some people become very anxious and stressed out about what they are going through, while others may feel sad or even experience positive feelings such as optimism and relief. Everyone has a different experience when they work through the divorce process, but for some people it can be quite hard. If you are facing challenges as you work through your divorce, it is important to do what you can to maintain a sense of normalcy—especially if you have kids.
There are various ways in which you may be able to retain a sense of normalcy even though you are experiencing major changes in your life and have a lot of uncertainty. For example, you could benefit from focusing on the positive aspects of your life that remain unchanged. It is important to prevent any divorce-related stressors from interfering with your work, which could lead to additional issues if left unchecked (poor job performance could result in a demotion or the loss of a job, for example). You should also try to prevent your divorce from adversely impacting your other relationships.
During your divorce, you should focus on eating healthy, exercising and participating in activities that you have always enjoyed. It can be helpful to get your mind off of the divorce process at times, but you should also go over any relevant issues carefully and be prepared, which could also help you keep your cool as you split up with your spouse.
