Nourish Your Body: Eat a Balanced Diet to Support Wellbeing ~3 of 12~


It’s easy to neglect proper nutrition when caught up in the whirlwind of divorce. These responses are typical: appetite changes, loss of motivation to grocery shop and meal prep, and increased reliance on takeout or quick snacks to get by. Instead, nourishing your body with wholesome, energizing foods can make a significant difference in helping you cope.

This inevitably impacts you emotionally and psychologically. Still, supporting your physical body with proper nutrients provides fuel, resilience, and stamina to weather the most challenging days. Making self-care through nutrition a priority does not need to be complicated or time-consuming.


Focus on incorporating more of the following healing foods:

– Whole grains like brown rice or quinoa to stabilize blood sugar and energy levels 

– Leafy greens and vegetables to increase vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant levels

– Probiotic-rich foods like yogurt to support your immune system and digestion

– Water and herbal teas to stay hydrated and calm

As much as possible, minimize inflammatory foods like excess caffeine, alcohol, sugary snacks, and processed foods. These destabilize your mood and well-being.


Taking small daily steps to eat more clean, nourishing foods gives your body – and mind – the resources it needs to find inner tranquility and balance during divorce, even when external circumstances feel chaotic and unsettled. Think of healthy eating as building resilience and let it act as a reminder of your intrinsic self-worth.
