Tips to alleviate stress amid divorce

Make no mistake about it, ending a marriage is one of life's most difficult experiences. Divorce is incredibly stressful and often overwhelming. For Arizona residents currently going through divorce, these tips may help to prevent added stress.

When emotions suddenly arise, one of the most helpful things to do to induce a calm state is to practice deep breathing. Those who experience stress often revert to short, shallow breathing. Remembering to take deep breaths will relieve stress and help with relaxation. Exercise is also one of the very best ways to get rid of stress. Benefits can be felt from as little as 10 minutes of exercise.

Although it may be tough, it is important to laugh throughout this experience. Watch funny television shows or check-in with a friend who keeps things light-hearted. Positive self-talk is also recommended during this time and will help to keep an optimistic outlook.

Going through a divorce is overwhelming and there are usually more things to do than usual. It is definitely helpful to make to-do lists to stay organized and on task. Crossing items off a to-do list can also bring great satisfaction.

It is very common to feel isolated and alone when a marriage ends. Joining a support group for divorcing spouses or spending time with relatives and friends can bring a sense of support and well-being. One of the most important things Arizona residents can do during this time is to obtain professional legal assistance. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can provide guidance and help individuals navigate through a divorce.
