Going through a divorce can feel like your entire world is falling apart. Between the emotional turmoil, legal proceedings, custody arrangements, and more, it’s easy to neglect taking care of yourself. Self-care is vital at this challenging time to help you cope, heal, and eventually move forward.Â

It can be stressful and overwhelming to process all the demands that come with it. It’s still a must to carve out time every single day to nourish your body, mind, and soul. Self-care isn’t an indulgence or luxury – it’s an investment in your mental, emotional, and physical well-being so you have the strength and resilience to weather this storm.

The scale of self-care.

Here are some everyday examples of quick self-care practices you can incorporate even during the most hectic of days:

– Take 5-10 minutes to sip herbal tea mindfully without any distractionsÂ

– Write down 3 things you’re grateful for in a mini journal carried in your purse

– Phone a close friend during your commute to chat about uplifting topics unrelated to the divorce

– Slip away during lunch for a brief 15-minute walk to clear your head

You establish healthy coping mechanisms when you consistently nurture yourself amidst divorce stressors. This bolsters your self-confidence to rely on your inner wisdom rather than looking on the outside to fill up the inside. Self-care puts you back in the driver’s seat so you can navigate this challenging chapter of your life with grace and emotional strength.
