How can I manage my emotions during a divorce?

For divorcing couples in San Diego, the process is rarely stress-free. It’s natural to experience a wide range of emotions, which can get in the way of making reasonable decisions as well as negatively impact your life. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to mitigate stress and keep your emotions in check.

Take time making decisions

According to Live About, making major decisions while under a great amount of pressure is rarely a good idea. That’s why you should refrain from making these decisions until you’re in a better state of mind. If you must make a time sensitive decision, consult with friends and family to get an unbiased perspective. They may be able to help you choose the right path, since they won’t be experiencing the same rush of emotions as you are at the moment. When it comes to decisions regarding child custody and other divorce-related issues, your legal team can provide objective solutions based on the facts of you case.

Make time for yourself

Among all the practical considerations involved in a divorce, make sure you’re taking time for yourself. This can entail spending time with friends and family, doing yoga, going for a hike, or even taking a quiet afternoon to read your favorite book. Self-care is key to a happy and healthy life, especially when you’re going through a highly stressful and sometimes isolating experience. Doing things you enjoy will also allow you to take your mind off serious matters, which is extremely beneficial to your mental state.

Let go of what you can’t control

You may continue to be upset by the actions of your ex-spouse even after your separation. Remember that you only have control over your thoughts and actions, as your ex’s are no longer your concern because they’re out of your control. Instead, focus on the things you can control, such as the changes happening in your life and in your family. While it can be hard to implement this change, doing so will make you much happier in the long run.

I’ve been working with Paul Ryan on a difficult case for over a year and he has been a God-send. He is smart, personable, very down to earth and a fighter. I had two terrible experiences previously with different SD firms, and hiring Paul has been a welcome breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Paul, especially for active duty military and veterans.
