Illinois family lawyerGoing through a divorce is difficult. Even if you have an amicable relationship with your soon to be ex-spouse, the process can be emotional and overwhelming. Regardless of your situation, you should remember to take care of yourself during this challenging time. This way, you can keep your physical and mental health under control. Here are seven tips for practicing self-care during divorce:

1. Get Enough Sleep

In order for your body and brain to function well, you should try to get seven to eight hours of sleep each evening. If you have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep because there is too much on your mind, try to take a warm bath, meditate, or listen to some soothing to relax your mind and get you in the mood for sleep.

2. Exercise Regularly

Even if you are busy and would rather sit on the couch and relax, you should make an effort to work out for at least 30-minutes a day. By doing so, you can avoid stress-induced weight gain and boost your levels of endorphins, which is the hormone that makes you happy.

3. Eat Healthy

If you would like to keep your weight in check, eating healthy is just as important as exercising. Instead of filling your diet with fast food and processed foods, opt for fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products.

4. Spend Time with Friends and Family

Although you may be tempted to stay at home, you should make plans with friends and family. Spending time with people who you trust and love can help you prevent feelings of loneliness and depression which are often seen during divorce.

5. Meet with a Mental Health Counselor

If you would like to speak to someone about your divorce, consider meeting with a mental health counselor. They may provide you with non-biased, valuable advice and allow you to vent about your situation.

6. Try a New Hobby

Is there a certain hobby you have always wanted to try? If so, now is the ideal time to try it. Whether you garden, knit, dance, or participate in any other hobby, you will be able to take your mind off of your divorce and enjoy life.

7. Practice Gratitude

Your marriage may be ending. However, there are likely many things in your life that you are grateful for. Remember to practice gratitude and realize how lucky you are to have a home, children, career, etc.
