The stress of a break-up or a divorce can really destroy your life. During this hard time remember to keep up with simple and easy life management habits. All five steps are important. To be most effective, start with step one. Master that step and then move to the next step.
Life Style Basics: Eat healthy, drink water, exercise, and sleep well. Do the things that you know are good for you. Doing basic good-for-you things lowers stress and helps keep depression away.
Relaxation: There is a wide range of relaxation techniques available for coping with the stress that you are going through. Find a technique that works for you. The list of choices includes breathing exercises, yoga, stretching exercises, biofeedback, meditation, massage, visual imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation (which is an especially effective tool).
Self-Rejuvenation: Find things you enjoy that make your spirit soar, especially when you don’t feel like it will help. This could include listening to music, meditation, prayer, sports, dance, painting, visiting nature, hiking, or writing. Take time for recreational and spiritual pursuits on a regular basis. This will help you to maintain balance and perspective.
Setting Limits: Try not to embrace faulty expectations about how much should be accomplished in life during this time. It may help to scale back, think smaller, and give your time more completely to the things that matter the most.
Effective Communication: If you are too passive with others, you may come to feel that everyone is taking advantage of you or controlling you. On the other hand, if you are too aggressive in your dealings with other people, you may antagonize them and create more stress for yourself. Set reasonable boundaries with your ex and other people.
Divorces and break-ups are hard. Everything in your world is changing and changing FAST! Now is the time to take really good care of yourself even if you might not feel like it.
