When it comes to divorce it is the emotional roller coaster that is the hardest part to both experience and manage. One moment you will feel ‘I’ve got this’ only to feel like you are upside down and have no idea where to turn a few moments later. When it comes to looking after yourself during divorce the challenge is often not knowing where to begin.
Divorce is a process of change. You will come out the other side but just ‘how’ is different for all of us. There is no doubt that how you think, feel and act will have a huge impact on your divorce process- both personal and legal.
In this 1 hour webinar I spoke with my colleague and friend Maria Buglar as she presented her top 10 tips on looking after yourself during divorce and separation.
You can listen to the webinar for free- there are slides but it is hosted on YouTube and I would encourage you to plug in some earphones to your iPhone and head out for a walk to listen rather than trying to watch (the slides are pretty but you won’t miss anything if you don’t see them!)
You can read my summary of this discussion on my blog here.
This webinar will be useful if you are experiencing separation or divorce and are looking for better ways to support yourself through.
Maria described divorce as an opportunity to ‘draft your new dream’ last week when we were talking- what a beautiful way of looking at things. Divorce is hard, horrible, full of strong and difficult emotions- our hearts are breaking so it is no wonder.
But divorce can be an opportunity for new dreams, new plans and a new life that would not have been possible before. Like any challenge life throws our way, it is all about how we see it. Do slow down, take time to look after yourself and make changes slowly, but don’t be afraid to draft your new dream along the way too.
Look after yourself.
