Steps divorcees can take to make 2015 fabulous

January is known for the month where some may say that they can’t take it anymore and make the decision to get divorced. This is why January is known for having the most divorce filings than any other month of the year. So with a month dedicated to resolutions that will help shape the year ahead, it is prudent for people who have recently had divorces finalized to make promises to themselves to make the next year positive.

After all, there are likely opportunities to move forward that were not present in a troubled marriage. With that, we offer a few tips to get you started on what can be the best year yet. 

Make caring for yourself a priority – For many in troubled marriages, they spend an inordinate amount of time taking care of others and working to meet their needs. This can be both physically and emotionally draining. Now is the time to make self-help a priority. It could be an exercise regimen or a little “retail therapy.” Whatever it may be, taking time to focus on you can help.

Seek and accept emotional support – It is perfectly normal to feel sad after a divorce, but prolonged depression and anger is not healthy. With that, it may be helpful to make an appointment with a counselor or therapist to sort through your feelings.

Take care of the kids – Indeed, we noted that you may have spent a great deal of time taking care of others (namely children), but the kids need you to be an emotional pillar in their lives. So being with and around them can help with the emotional healing as well.
